    Unbelievable buck, but there is no such thing as a velvet world record animal in Pope & Young. You can have the largest velvet buck entered (just as an informational comment), but P&Y only recognizes hard horned entries for consideration of world record status.

      Thanks Marvin you are correct. Pope & Young does in fact have a velvet category, but recognizes their World Records by hard-horned only. This buck could be big enough to be that if the hunter decides to strip the velvet. Tim Roberts waited right to the end to decide if he should strip the velvet and see if he could overcome the 203 1/8 net score and be the new world record for P&Y. However, they felt after the velvet was stripped there was a good chance he would just miss that mark and he chose to stick with the velvet. Once you strip it, there is no going back.

      Just to answer some other questions that have come up….no this buck will not challenge the Boone & Crockett (B&C) world record for typical mule deer. In addition, B&C does not accept velvet entries. You have to strip the velvet for B&C to accept it in their record books.

      Thanks

    Im going to hunt a muley draw zone via horseback in N. California on the 1st of Oct.

    I was up there a few weeks ago and saw some nice immature 5 and 6 pointers.

    Do you have any advice for my hunt? I have been a succesful hunter for nearly 30 yrs – but never taken a giant muley and I know there are some whoppers in this area im going to! Thanks Shane
