    Blacktail Non-Typical

    I normally hunt Blacktails the last week of the California Zone B-2 season. That is always a waiting game hoping a late season storm will drive some of the of the larger mountain dwelling Blacktails down into the foothills. By comparison, the early season offers a chance at resident deer in balmy temperatures. This year, I was offered a chance at an early season hunt, and jumped at the chance! Pre-hunt scouting disclosed a wide very respectable Blacktail, but lacking in mass. We also found a non-typical. I had only killed one non-typical to this point in my hunting career-a Texas whitetail with a drop tine. I did not find that very exciting, so I ignored any others that I came across. However, this was a non-typical Blacktail! I had never seen a non-typical Blacktail before, and I wanted this one. His horns were not overly long, and the additional tines gave him the appearance of sporting a butch haircut, reminiscent of the sixties. Two days of watching and searching, and I had my chance. One bullet from my 25/06 Encore ended the chase for The Butch.Click image for larger version.

    Thanks. Update: If you care about that sort of thing, I finally got him scored-123 5/8-SCI Record Book-Handgun Category. Interesting that were only four other non-typical Blacktails listed in the HG section.
