I chase blacktails also and very rarely do you see one of that caliber. I see one every couple years like that guy and have yet to get a shot. My best is a 3x3 with an 18 1/2" spread. our deer down here are really small so the horns look huge. He weighed 73 pounds hanging in the locker.
My brother just shot a goofy blacktail on Thursday. A single fork with a funny looking 1/2" tall by 1" round stub on the other side. 70 pounds hanging.
