Big Kentucky Velvet Buck!

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?
