One of our members grunted in this gorgeous 9-point around 5:15 tonight. Deer only weighed 135#, but sported some impressive headgear. Bladed brow tines, G2's were 8", really symmetrical and long main beams, plus NO broken points. We're guessing the deer will score in the 120's. A couple of years of letting small bucks walk has really started to pay off for the Rocky Branch Hunt Club.

Enjoy the pics.

Chuck,

You're right about the deer, but (unfortunately) wrong about the hunter. I wish it was me but Quintettecrackerjack actually took that 9-point, he was 21" inside. Here's a picture of his son with the wide buck:

Wanted to add an update - taxidermist gross scored the buck at 122 and 3/8". Would only have about 3-4" of deductions, so he will netclose to 120. Guess the bar has been raised for the rest of us in this club....
