17pt. STAG buck in full velvet

Chris Kadrovich of Pitkin, La.
I shot this buck on the morning of 12/18/12 at Fort Polk WMA. I had been sitting on a red oak ridge that was dropping lots of acorns which the deer and hogs had been grazing on for the past several days. At about 9:30am several does and this strange buck came out of the creek bottom and began feeding. One look thru my scope and I knew what he was. He was still in full velvet and had a messed up rack, it had to be a 'Stag' buck. After one shot thru the lungs, he ran about 20 yards and piled up in a blown down tree top. After pulling him out of the tree top, I was right about the deer, Mother Nature forgot his 'Jewels'. He was in full velvet and 17 points growing in every direction. He had actually broke off about 7 inches of a tine on the left side when he ran thru the blown down tree top.
