Big Kentucky Velvet Buck!

By Scott Bestul

Well it’s gonna be tough to top the New Mexico mulie that we got to ogle the other day, but this photo proves that the early stages of the ’09 season aren’t just for Western deer.

No real details about this Kentucky giant, except that it was killed in the opening days of that state’s archery season, by a bowhunter who had two season’s worth of sheds from the deer. The towering velvet rack supposedly scores in the mid-180’s, though I have no confirmation of that figure.

Anyone know anything about this Bluegrass State monster?

Beautiful deer. Two season's worth of sheds & taken during archery--in velvet! That's hunting--that's awesome!

I keep telling myself I need to get down to KY to hunt one of these velvet monsters. Next year just might have to be that year I finally do it.

Great looking deer. Makes waiting 2 years for it all worth it. Can't wait to here more details about this giant.

I always love these early season success stories. You just have to know the hunter put his time in on it.
I saw a pic on another sight of a big hard horned buck from KY.

Very nice buck!
Now a question, can velvet antlers be mounted? Do they last?

Thats a great buck and yes I do believe velvet antlers can be mounted. I know a taxedermist and he mounts several velvet deer.

That is one hell of a whitetail. Looks like this season is looking up. Possible whitetail world record this season?
