honestly.. for our area in NY.. if you DIDNT mount him .. you would probably get shot.. that thing is ridiculous..

i know about 30 dudes that would straight up pay the 400 to get it mounted

I personally would do a euro mount on him. i would not pay 400 to have a shoulder mount done if I didnt shoot him. I would do a nice euro mount my self. It would be a great story and memory to tell your grand kids someday.

This is just a non-needed statement!! It doesn't havre to be killed by hunting to get it mounted, it's a trophy deer that was unfortinate to get killed that way. It is most certainly a trophy no matter what, and deserves the respect to be put on the wall. Makes a wonderful conversation piece!!

Many years ago there was a buck hit by a car about 5 miles from my house. I think this was back in the early 90's. If memory serves me right, it set a new state record for " road kill ". I think they said, that had it been taken by a hunter it would have made the top 5 in the state record books. I didn't get to see it, but was told it was a ridiculously big buck.

A buddy of mine started a " bug box " business here in our area. Has boxes he built full of beetles from , I believe Brazil. that clean everything off skull/bone. Then shellacks and polishes. Makes awesome Euro mount.

This IS a nice buck, but far from a " monster ", especially for the area of Erie Co./Niagara co. Personally, I wouldn't invest much dinero on it.

I know the buck and saw it the evening it was hit. Fergy, a state trooper, was, I believe, the third person on the scene that finally accepted it. He couldn't believe his luck. It was a monster. Scored close to 220" gross, NT. Supposedly aged at only 4 1/2. Nailed right at 13/17. I hunted that buck for better than two years and never saw it during the daylight hours. Saw plenty of it's sign though.

I travel the 13/17 route often enough to know I'd give a nut or two, to hunt that area. I have seen some large creatures on that stretch of road.
