    Found dead in Lenawee county last February. This is the first replica mounted. Dale Livingood did the replica. Check out his work at autumnlegends.com. He does AWESOME work. This is one of copies. The real rack is sold to a private collector who also owns the mold. As far as I know the racks at this time are not available to the public. This one was mounted for the folks involved in finding it.

    I thought you were trying to get me on a date for a second there ;-)

    I remember the story now, thanks. I beleive the finder was a lady out walking her dogs and called a hunting friend to remove it.

    Hope you don't get tired of hearing this? Very nice work, I thought it was a live pic when I looked at the first picture. :)

    I worked with Dale on these reproductions, but they always look better on a shoulder mount. If anyone has anybody interested in museum quality reproductions you can give Dale or i a call. Nice mount Justin!

    Oh what a nice Buck. I have family who long ago lived in that county and can only wonder if there were any bucks back then (1800's) as such. Thanks for showing him around and the story as well. His photo is saved on my documents and forever etched into my memories now.
