Anyone know of this Oregon Buck has been panel scored?
So this is a absolute monster. Where I come from in days creek Oregon I have seen monster black tailed deer. What people don't understand is that blacks are the hardest deer to hunt, they are smart, skiddish and they are paranoid as hell especially when they get big. I call them cliff bucks because the only time I have glassed them was in the steapest country I've seen in southern Oregon. If I were to be able to even have a decent shot I wouldn't take it because if I were to they would have fallen hundreds of feet and it would bruise the meat and break the horns. I took my brother up there a few years back because he didn't believe me. So when he saw it first hand he **** his pants. The cliffs are literally filled with monsters and they are there every year without question! We counted 12 in just one day! We tried to make a shot happen but we were 500 yards away and we couldn't get any closer. I can hit anything from that distance on flat ground but we were down hill shooting up hill, the wind in that country is swift and unpredictable to say the least and the San Ana winds blow even harder so we didn't feel confident to shoot one. If I can't hit it with 100 percent certainty I won't pull it. And once I take one that spot is most likely compromised and they will find another spot. The biggest one we saw was a non- typical 5+ point and I wanted him so bad, he could have been a record for sure and I couldn't see all his points. He had points coming out everywhere and he had drop tines on both sides and they touched each other in the middle right above his nose. I'm going again next year and no matter what I have to do to get a shot I am not leaving from there unless I have his head and meat in my bag.

since this thread is from 2009......it has been sorted out or forgotten....I-5 is only a boundary for elk, B&C allows blacktail to be taken to the eastern boundary of the Willamette NF.
I'm not going to speculate in whether it's a blacktail, but it would have to be DNA tested before I'd believe it.
