This buck was killed by a mountain lion. He was on the ranch we hunted in Chihuahua in January. So I want to know do you think this deer was;
a cull?
a trophy?
or just a fork horn?

I would have loved to have had a chance at him. I haven't hunted a lot of mule deer but I have not seen anything like him.

Looks like he had potential to become a monster.

I beg to differ and think he needed to be removed from the herd. Bases too large for a young Deer and the one long brow tine make me think it was an older Buck.

Agree with Don. Just because a mulie doesn't look like a Rocky Mountain typical, doesn't mean it's young.

Old buck past his prime, maybe? Definitely would have taken him on the last day, but not a first-day trophy for me.

Depends on the nature of the hunt. A paid hunt, I would have passed on him until the last day and then I would have probably passed on him even then. My ranch, I would have had a friend or kid take him out. If that deer was around, you can bet there are others that are considerably better. I think he was past his prime--an old man in human terms.

An old and genetically unusual buck IMO.

He would make an awesome euro mount in my eyes.

That's not a young buck, just the opposite IMO. Definitely a cull.

Older buck for sure. Why didn't they clean it up before putting it on the wall? That's just nasty.

They had just found him. He isn't on the wall just propped up for a picture.

i guess I would call him a cull trophy. He's big, he's heavy and he's unique but I wouldn't want a ranch covered up by his offspring.

There is a reason he was targeted by the lion, he was probably the oldest in the area and easiest to kill.

If thatís a WT deer with bases like that, everyone on here would agre he was old and on the decline. No question he was old and needed taken out, nature just did the job for ya!

Still a cool find. His width doesnít show on the wall, I was kinda surprised when I saw the photo with you and the head, much bigger than the first pics showed.

That's one of the guides holding him up. I agree that with that pic you can see how big that old mulie was.

I agree, I killed a very similar buck "not nearly that much mass" years ago with a muzzleloader and it was a trophy to me. Older buck past his prime.

A Trophy is the consideration of the man or woman that killed it. I grew up in NM hunting #34 and around......this is a NICE deer. I would have been proud to shoot it.

That is a heavy cull that needed to go. I would have busted him.
