It shouldn’t be too difficult in this day and age to have its DNA checked and at least determine if it’s a mule deer or whitetail deer.

Rompolagate all over again. I remember that article. 38+ years ago. Time flies.

Can they get viable dna from antlers or skull plate??

I live about 20 miles from Orleans. Never heard of the buck, nor the Valley House, not sure it’s even still in business. When I get back from Florida in the spring I’ll see what I can find out.

Well I just read a historical account of the Valley House, the building burned down in 1998. Hopefully the mount was not in it!

At one point...just based on the "eye test"...I thought it unlikely. But...then I saw some interesting bucks that came out of that area...and the thing was...when I saw them immediately this buck came to mind and at least gave me the belief that genetically... it is possible.
