As Dad and I traveled along to the 2014 Top 30 sale I said to him "I hope someone's brought a buck to the show I don't know about that could help us move forward with our typical breeding program" We went there with the intention of buying semen from a couple bucks I was very impressed with in their photos. I wanted to see the hard antler of the bucks before making up my mind because of the photo shopping, retouching, and adding of clay extensions then make your replica and mount it crowd.I entered the door and immediately the tine length of a huge typical caught my eye.I soon found out the bucks name was "Dude".His mount and hard antlers were much more impressive than the photo of him in the add.His owner was displaying all five of his racks grown to date.Dude's typical consistency year after year,single brow,and tine spacing was awesome. A testament of the predictability and typical production potential in his offspring by breeding him to our typical pedigreed doe.Furthurmore after winning numerous placks in this years panel scored antler competition at Nadefa, I was surprised to hear some of "Dudes"typical tines were over 19". It was like a breath of fresh air to walk in the top30 and find a typical buck of this quality that is a perfect outcross for our farms typical genetics .It is even more refreshing to have an owner advertise tine length under what his buck was panel scored. Thanks to Bill for bringing this great deer. It was a real encouragement to me. I hope one day to grow a typical buck on our farm with tines over 19" We will be putting Dudes clean19" typical tines on top of Banjo's clean 18" typical tines this fall . Again thanks Bill for providing us this great chance to move forward with Dude in our AI program!
