This magnificent buck was taken in 2013 by Brian Dallons in Nevada County, Ca. The impressive rack grossed a whopping 207 4/8" as a typical and 229 1/8" as a NT. It is the largest blacktail ever taken in the state.
Nevada County is EAST of I-5 so it is considered a Muley not a Blacktail or that is what I last heard on the species of deer here in CA. ZIGGER or any other B&C measurer should know the answer to this question.
Mr Dallon passed away in a car accident in dec just outside of grass valley last year,I had heard about the accident and see the scarred tree every couple days as I drive by.
I didn't know it was him till last night when another friend told me.
Years ago everyone who killed a big deer in California tried to make it a blacktail. B&C offers DNA testing now that eliminates all doubt. Many a "blacktail" have been proven otherwise by this advancement in technology, and suddenly, like magic, the number of giant "blacktail" plummeted when science could prove men at best disingenuous, at worst liars.
