    Big Buck from the 50's

    How's this for a California buck? He is a 32 inch 4X5 that was killed near Bishop back in the 50's. He has a short left main beam but still a "shooter"! The antlers have been hanging in a barn in the Sierra Valley for many years and recently were given to a friend of mine. I'm puting them on a plaque for him.

    Still a shooter? Heck ya he is! Great buck. I've always thought there would be some great bucks in that area.

    That is a nice looking buck bigmoose. The Bishop area and the Sierra mountains in that area have some cool history. I've heard stories on how it was back in the 50's and early 60's and I wish I could have hunted it back then. It is a beautiful mountain range.

    There is a bar in Rio Vista (west of Stockton) which I can't remember the name of, that has the most awsome collection of huge California deer I have ever seen. Most are pre WWII. I seem to remember a few from out of state too. Anyway if you are ever in that area, stop and have a beer and drool!
