More mystery bucks

January 28, 2008 at 10:34 AM

I’m cleaning out the e-mails, finally, and it’s time to face facts: while the following buck pictures are interesting and compelling, it doesn’t look like I’m going to get a story to go with them. Might as well just post them and run ... unless you’ve got more facts to go with the pictures.

This first series is of a buck reportedly killed near Greenville, Miss.

This second series is a complete mystery. Any ideas out there?

This next one is simply known as Kansas buck. I’d love to have one like this someday.

This last one is supposedly from Pike County, killed by a student at Southern Illinois at Carbondale. But I’ve heard nothing recently about such a buck. Has this one been kept hush-hush?
