    Who says there are not monster whitetails out west. That things huge.
     
  6. That is a great find. It doesn't look to be chewed on either. Around here red squirrels and mice seem to find everything first.

    I am guessing August before the season opens in Sept.. It was found 50 yds from where the previous year left shed was found. Looked like bedding area. Lower jaw shows possible 4 - 5 year old deer. We have too many wolves but this one didn't fit the profile. If I had to guess I would say lion kill. Plenty of those too.
     
  8. to sad you had to get him that way but atleast you got him i guess
     
  9. well i guess you got a real nice euro mount!
     
  10. Damn what a brute.

    This guy is quite a whitetail hunter. I want to leave the velvet and keep the antlers as found. They tell the story. He wants them stripped but doesn't want to spend the money on restaining. He crafts GREAT wood carved signs so a trade might be in the works. ;D

    tjaxtax- why does soaking in polytranspar leave my skulls stained black? They fade when dried, but brown to black when soaking.
