This is a picture of a melanistic whitetail buck I harvested on Nov. 11, 2016 at my family's ranch in Central Texas. I have been waiting to share this picture and story with y'all for the last 10 months! I wrote an article about "Black Beauty," as we called him, and the article was just published in Quality Whitetails magazine this month (QDMA's magazine). I gave them first right's to the story, so I had to keep this private until the magazine came out. I have a copy of the article on my website. Feel free to check it out when you get a chance if you want to check out the full story: http://www.mapmyranch.com/black-beauty.html

Thanks, everyone. It has been a very special journey for the first day I saw him to putting out the story and pics. Glad to finally be able to share it with y'all.

I got a shoulder mount done. Will post some pics tomorrow. Got it back and it turned out great!

Also, in the printed article from Quality Whitetails, there is a subsection that discusses melanistic deer. I've cut and pasted it here to check out. Cool info:
