    My daughter and her boyfriend invited our cousin and his girlfriend to come and hunt. Amy shot this 8 point. The biggest for her so far. But look at the black on his face. I think it is the coolest looking deer ever.

    Might be a fella that was in his prime. I've seen a few in Louisiana like that.

    I've never seen one like this in my whole life.

    See Bett, that's what happens when you let the Arkansas boys come down here and hunt. They go out and get a hoss, and think it is so easy. Let them go a month without seeing any deer and see what they say. I would have let the lead fly.........

    My friends and I camp in the Ouachita Mtns near lake Winona and we actually saw a few deer that had that black on their face on opening morning.

    Congrats to the young lady :thumb: I think that dark color is contributed to a high amount of melinism (not sure how to spell it).
