The Facts about the bucks pictured on BTC.

.In the past there has been considerable debate about whether or not some of the the bucks pictured in the California Field Photos section of BTC are in fact truly pure Columbia Blacktails and not the muley cross hybrids that some people try to pass off as Blacktails. To help put this matter to rest once and for alI I did a little research. The reason most often stated by nonbelievers is "the bucks from California are to wide to be pure Columbian Blacktails". I believe many people make this assumption simply because they are unaware of the size Columbia Blacktails are capable of attaining. To help them better understand I have made a list of outside spread widths from B&C's Records of North American Deer and Elk. If you have a minute take a look, I think some of you might find these numbers very enlightening.

On the same page I also put some information together to help people better determine where they have the best chance of harvesting a Boone & Crockett Blacktail. The information is broken down by county and state. The page also contains a chart with a simply formula for estimating your deer's live and dressed weights without the use of a scale.
