Local gal kills Monster Buck.

This is Steph's buck after the broken antlers were repaired...

Stephanie Durfee, a good friend of ours drew the Utah Sportsman Deer tag for 2008-2009. They invitied us to spend some time down on the Henry Mountains helping them look for the buck of a lifetime. We got to see some monster deer and enjoyed the weekends that we spent down there with the Durfee's. Dustin, is a 2nd or 3rd cousin, I think, and is our veterinarian for our dogs. I am very proud of the way they passed lots of big bucks, knowing that they had the opportunity of a lifetime in their grasp, and held out until they found a buck worthy of the permit. Congratulations to Steph and Dustin for taking a magnificent buck.

The deer was broke up but still scored 230 inches. They had a local taxidermist repair the broken antlers with help from some photos and videos of the buck.
After the repairs, the buck scores over 255 inches..... Monster Buck..and largest taken in Utah this year.
