I was hoping to find a much larger buck that was in this area but in the end I resolved this buck worked just fine.

Yeah, I'd say he "worked just fine" :) What a lovely scene, soft light, and great pose with that one foreleg raised. Beautiful image Terry.

Outstanding deerscape. Th mountains in the background really add so much to this fine image. I have really enjoyed your mule deer posts. Keep em coming.

I don't think there is such a thing as a much larger buck.  I mean, sure, there are bucks with much larger antlers, but this here appears to be a fully mature buck with the bulk and musculature throughout the body that is typical of full grown bucks in good condition.  

It's bucks like this guy that place rather high in the hierarchy of the herd, and that get to do a lot of the breeding - and antler size doesn't matter much when it comes to those things.

Really sweet image!  I like the way that your depth of field allowed the mountains to be rendered as they are.
