Was an amazing hunt at the tail end of 2019. I remember starting this weekend off thinking I wasn't going to go after any antlers, and was focused on getting rid of one pesky spike buck. Hunted all of that Saturday minus a quick run into town to get some caffeine. Evening hunt I took a doe. Sunday started early and I was watching the edge of a wheat field all morning. Never saw the spike buck I was after. That Sunday evening hunt I went out around 2pm to try my luck at a different blind I had seen that spike near before. After a few turkeys pecked around, some does and typical bucks came out around the feeder and through some of the crossings. Lo and behold the next thing I see was this big guy casually walking out from the tree line. I've been hunting most of my life and I can tell you for a fact that I was shaking and excited with what I had in front of me about 120 yards out. I remember telling myself to calm down. Take things slow. Then next thing I know I'm walking out to get pictures.

Sadly, would have scored amazing except he's non-typical and he's got a broken G1.

He's certainly not the biggest we have seen out on our place either.

He looks much bigger in the dead deer pic. Its hard for a pic to do a buck justice. Looks big bodied and long beamed.

He was a big dude -- loading him into the truck by myself sucked quite a bit. But he tasted great.

Did you chose not to have taxi fix the broken brow to try to stay true to the bucks character?

I dont know what his answer would be but I think there are several possible answers why people dont have broken points fixed.
1. They just dont even think about it.
2. They dont realize that its even doable.
3. They want the rack to be remembered the way it was when they saw/killed it.
4. They dont want to spend the extra money(if any.)
To me the reason that most would want it fixed would be to honor the buck by showing what he actually grew.
To each their own on whether to fix or not.
