Oh idk I saw this pic from guy who shot it and I agree dog it's pretty sweet lookin, but this is like a ridiculous spike, I've shot one before with 13 inch spike blade on one side and big 4 point on the other but this deer takes spike to a new level

Dog looks like a blue lacey or however you spell it. That's a heck of a spike! A guy out at our lease shot one with some 11" spikes earlier this year. Should have got some pics of it bang

The buck in the first pic appears to have broken mainbeams and could have had possibly a few tines. He is not a yearling buck by any means.

Not odd at all on a really aggressive buck. Seen them with only stubs for mainbeams left with both beams broken at or below the browtines.

here is a tag question for you. i already tagged a spike. IF i were to go after this one, does he still qualify under the buck tag?

As long as there is no branch greater than an inch yes.

I would say in my opinion it follows the letter of the law but not the spirit if it makes any dif to you.

I thought axis hybrid as well ... we had one on a corporate place in the 80s outside Rocksprings that had a very similar look (although half the length) and the ranch manager swore it was a hybrid.
