    Most of you, that read my posts, know I talk to C.W. a few times a week, We were talking the other day, and he said I had a pic of myself and Big Red with him hanging in a tobacco barn, I told him, I have probably seen every Big Red pic out there, bit wasnt awarebof that one. He said no very few outside the family had ever seen it, but had no idea where it was.I told him, he should put in a lot of effort to find it. And he said he would, but had no idea where to even start looking, but luckily he found it. This is by far, my favorite Big Red pic, back in those days very few even had a camera, and not a lot of pics taken, but C.W was a auctioneer and sold real estate, so he did have a camera and kept it with him . Back then, even if you took a pic, you had to send the film off and wait on it, so you never knew how good your pic, would be. Unlike today, with cell phones and cameras, and social media, you can and most do take several pics of their deer and send them to friends in texts or post them on social media. Back then if you wanted someone to see a pic, you literally had to hand it to them, either keep it in your truck or pocket, or have it with you. Anyway I thought I would share this one with you guys, Im going to have this one framed, Very glad he found it, and made me a copy and sent it to me.
    Thanks for Looking..

    I dont really think so, there is a lot goes on with that buck, that sometimes, he dont even know about, Some of the stories written, are so fabricated to sell them, its unbelievable , I have talked him into doing a interview with someone, and tell the true story the way it is, coming out of his own mouth, he is proud of the buck, and does like to talk about him, but he is 82 and has a ton of health issues, so he has a lot on his mind, I have shown him the article you posted before, and about all he said is I cant believe that, the real Mount is done in a full body, at bass pro in Springfield, of course the rack is original, but on a different body.

    I kind of figured that Grago and that's a shame. I'd love to hear an interview with him. He should be proud of that buck it's a heck of a deer, I know I would!

    I was in Bass Pro Springfield back in the early 90's. I think I remember seeing that full mount but didn't look to see where it came from! WOW that is an amazing deer!

    That’s a really neat pic, glad to see it. Thank you for posting it for us. Do you know what kind of rifle that is in the pic?
