    Ha QQ, the coastal deer, black-tail or black-tail hybrids depending on the recognized boundary line are nice looking forked horns or three points in my area so I have to agree with you a bit. Where the dink comes in my mind is their body size. They are a whole lot less on the hoof than their mule deer cousins east from us. The benefit is less effort to pack them out . Some of them also have some nice beach front views too.

    Kevin, you need to move all of the pics of that big forked horn to some big buck thread since I have shot alot smaller blacktails that I thought were pretty good bucks!
    "Now two flags fly above my land that really sum up how I fee. One is the colors that fly high and proud The red, the white, the blue. The other one's got a rattlesnake With a simple statement made "Don't tread on me" is what it says and I'll take that to my grave. Because this is me. I'm proud to be American and strong in my beliefs. And I've said it before but I'll say it again 'Cause my family's always fought and died to save this land. And a country boy is all I'll ever be."

    That chocolate-horned buck is a pretty deer.

    This one would be a dink by body size, but still pushing 38-40" on outside spread with that G4 kicking straight out. Huge bodied deer not long removed from one heckuva Winter. He was trying to follow 3 other bucks I spooked and those younguns kept running, this one lasted about 100ydsin a half circle then looked gassed and started walking.
