    2 pt record

    Anyone know of the mule deer record for a two point frame? I know I've seen something on it before but can't find it.

    I shot this buck in 1969 in California's High Sierra not to far from Mammoth Mountain. He was with 2 other bucks as big as him. They ran into a thicket of brush and I shot the first one to come out. I never knew he was a 2x2 until I walked up to him. Made a really great mount. They called this type of buck a "Pacific Buck" according to the taxi I used.

    Years ago at a bar in Green River, Utah they had just the rack of a 2pt that had a 38" spread. It was shot in the early 60's on a island in the Green River south of the town. It was really impressive to look at.

    I have also seen some huge 2pts in my hunting career. Most of them have been seen in areas that had antler point restrictions where you couldn't shoot them.
    If you don't care where you are, you are not lost....

    3x3 is more of an Eastern way of counting ... or just a 6-point.

    Out West he's a 2x2 as CC said ... but you could say he's a 2x2 with eyeguards if you really wanted to.

    As a youth, I lived in Humboldt Co. Calif. They were referred to as Pacific Forks there. We hunted a mt. range known as the Trinity Alps and those big forks were not uncommon. Nice buck....
