I realize that deer come in all kinds of shades and their tails are never alike but I think that the deer does resemble a whitetail to me....and even his tail does too....????? who knows lol

the rack and body proportions says whitetail, but the color and lack of throat patch says mulie. wonder if its one of those mix dealies?

The ears appear to be normal whitetail size to me and the fact that it's lacking a throat patch doesn't mean it can't be a whitetail,
It's rare but there are whitetails without the white throat patch..
Here's a pic of a Whitetail with no throat patch
I personally think it looks more whitatail than Muley BUT it's hard to say with just this one picture.

If I remember correctly the buck was shot/died? about 4 years ago and was not allowed in the record books because of being MOSTLY mulie. It indeed was a cross breed from a high fence ranch that escaped. The two biggest problems with all of this is first my memory and second being an internet buck that has been around for quite some time. As with all things the story changes over years on the web. Hey don't think for a moment that I would not let the air out of him if given the chance. With a buck like that who cares---------NICE BUCK!!! I do remember there was a lot of controversy over this buck.
