This buck had a pretty cool backstory. It was shot once by my customer the previous year with a bow, the shot was basically straight down below the stand. The arrow entered and exited on same side of the spine. It was the bucks right side, only getting one lung. They trailed for several hours and over a mile only to run out of blood. The hunter was pretty upset. The buck disappeared for several weeks, only to show back up on trail camera late season. He made it through the winter and looked perfectly healthy at the end of the next summer. That fall he was again shot by the landowners son. The shot was in the right side and he got approximately six inches of penetration, he caught the back of the shoulder blade and it was a longer shot, hence the shallow penetration. the buck took off like nothing was wrong and they only found a few specks of muscle blood. A few weeks go by and my customer sees him chasing a doe through the timber. The buck ends up chasing the doe into bow range presenting my customer with a broadside shot on his left side. He made a perfect shot this time. Crazy thing is he said it dropped like he was shot with a rifle and was dead in seconds. When they field dressed him his right lung was completely shriveled up and black, about the size of an orange. So he was shot three times in the vitals by two different people over two years. These animals never cease to amaze me with their toughness and desire to live. The customer brought me what was left of one shed they found along with two of the recovered arrows. He wanted them incorporated into the mount. This is what I came up with. I am pretty satisfied with how this one turned out.
