Curly about 25 years ago my best friend's brother in law killed a spike just like that in a shotgun only hunt at the Longhorn Army Ammunition Plant at Karnack...seems like TPWD aged it at 5.5 years old...

I like mature/unique deer like that. I would have harvested him and sent him to the taxi. Cool deer!

Nice deer and conversation piece..I saw one like that many moons ago..Not with that graceful curve..Just 2 (look like broom handles sticking up..Maybe 18" out around Comstock ..couldn't get shot and never saw again..Probably good to have him out of gene pool!

I saw that deer back in 1991.... He must be very elusive and long lived!

I bet the other deer didn't let him play in their games. They could lose an eye.


Sometimes it's hard being me! But somebody has to do it.

Unique trophy.....I don't think I've seen a spike (forget about the nubby brows) that large.

I rattled up the one I saw. Had him in the scope for a good 10-15 seconds while he was staring at me head on at about 50 yds, but I was too focused on searching for points and wondering why the heck I couldn't see any to even get a shot off. When he took off running, I was still fixated on looking at his horns. I wasn't drinking or doing drugs, so I didn't think it was a hallucination. It's just not something you see everyday. This was on a 5K acre lease and that was the only time that buck was seen.

Thanks for posting the pic.
