I see alot of forked horns go through this site so I figured I would show you all the last one I shot ,It sure was good eating tender as a ribeye,I have no field photos I didnt own a camera at the time.
I was walking a ridge real slow looking off each side and when I stoped and look right in front of me he was just 75 yards away looking at me I knew it was a buck but I had no idea what sized rack it had,As I was pulling the gun up he took off straight away It didnt take me but a half second to decide to shot, it was the first buck I had seen.I missed the first shot over the top of him it hit 10 feet in front of him and made him turn left I fired two more shots broad side at him on the run and hit him with both,he never slowd down a bit and ran over the hill I waited 10 minuets then walked over and found blood and followed it right to him,boy was I suprised to see a 28 inch 2x3 he is realy heavy to.
I forgot to mention he is a california buck.
Nice deer but, (and correct me if I'm wrong because deer hunting isn't my primary type of hunting), isn't that a 3x2? I always thought a "fork" was a deer that had forks on both sides (2x2). Not ragging on you or anything I just want to get my terms straight.
That's a dandy, I saw a good sized fork X 3 this last weekend in a local park not quite that wide but I'd have given him a dose if it were during season/somewhere I could hunt but, the 3 side was almost elk like, the fork was up higher and then a big long dagger down low and eye guards too.
Love those big forks even if they got an extra point
I chased a huge fork all day in Colorado one year. had him in the scope 3 or 4 times but could not get a shot. I pushed him over a little null and someone killed him. he was not 28 but maybe 26 an dreally heavy. I wanted him bad. he was a Big deer huge body. I took a pic I will have to see if I can find it. congrats on your buck
