Default Almost jumped out of my stand

I was hunting over in IL yesterday afternoon and got the life scared out of me. I was sitting in my stand about 4:30. The sun was hitting my back, feeling nice and warm. Kinda half dozing off and the biggest cammotion starts going off right behind me. I almost jumped over board. I turned around to see a Red Tailed Hawk chasing a squirel on the ground. He must have dove into the brush after it and made one hell of a crash. Any how the squirel got away, and I was now wide awake. Saw a little button buck later but passed.

While I was over there, I visited my friend the taxidermist, Bob Schnettgoecke, and he was mounting a set of repos from the Chad Goetten Buck. It was killed about 7 miles from where I hunt in "03. Chad is doing one for his father and father in law.I am still amazed at the mass on that buck. Final score was 234 7/8. But 2 typical tines were broken, if they would match the other side, the score would be in the 260's. This is a picture of Chad with his MONSTER.

Hey jmbuck, I'm assuming you're talking a non-typical score, what do you mean by doing repos? I've seen this buck before and I've never seen its equal as far as mass goes. Nothing short of amazing!

Some of those deer need to be relocated to VA. Our biggest ones still look scrawny compared to what you guys have.

He was mounting a set of reproduction antlers on another deer's hide. They made a form to pour resin in and make copies. And yes it is a non-typical score. But the broken off points would have been from his typical frame.
