Rare, and another opportunity to put a unique trophy on the wall. Even if he wasn't a melanism buck, he has a dandy rack. And those backstraps are beautiful!
What is the question again? I am not sure why anyone would pass on this buck. Unless your some fenced in TV show that wears make-up.
Dan this buck has melanism it is the rarest of skin pigmentation conditions. So the question is would you take a buck with the rarest skin pigmentation? I know I would add him to my collection without even thinking twice!
