Neat little whitetail

    Thought I would share this one because of the unique color. This guy had many issues when he came through the door, first off he was shot through the neck with a 30-06 ballistic tip, had been riding around in the back of a truck for a week and was half rotten. I had to try and save him because of the cool color and the hair was very soft almost like rabbit fur. This little guy was only 12 inches tight at the ears and the brisket was slipping badly. I also had about a 16 inch rip in the neck from the bullet to deal with. Not my best mount but for what I had to work with I hope I did him justice.

    That is one cool looking deer! Great save. It almost looks like someone took a bottle of clairol to it and bleached it out.
