"There was nothing on the deer that made me think it had been injured," Smith says. "It was a large bodied deer, his coat was in great shape and thick, but his neck wasn't swollen like you'd expect to see at this time of year. And when I field dressed, he had the proper parts. In all respects, he looked like a normal deer, just with a bunch of hair on his rack," Smith says. "It's not often that you can see a buck that you didn't even know could exist, then be able to hunt him for five days straight, and harvest him at the end. That's made this all that much more special. It's quite a trophy--a pretty cool deer."
