If you cant kill one , make one!

  1. Guy killed a nice 10pt .
    He thought it was 150ish when he pulled the trigger.
    I picked the deer head up at the processing place. Guys calls wanting me to score it. (134.5.). Wellllll that just aint big enough make him bigger. As close to 150 as you can. Yes sir!
    After talking to him I convinced him to not messing with any thing but the brows. So if you cant kill one just shoot anything and make it so. Got it to 148 3/8. Close enough. Not the best i’ve done but not to bad. Union could be better, but im not messing with it any more. 83679D78-E644-4736-82A1-35831A762FBC.jpeg 12DED16F-C23A-4334-AF5E-CC8BDFA01CF0.jpeg FF5B19EF-1B00-49F6-A115-BB92C256F4ED.jpeg AF954F3C-185D-442A-A119-95CA5E688E9C.jpeg

    Nice job. Reminds me of a guy that brought a deer to butcher shop that was lucky
    if it weighed 50 lbs, complained that he only got 1 box of meat back. The butcher
    told him if you want more meat kill a bigger deer.

    There was this guy that got a bear and he was being teased by his hunting buddy, all the "Mine's bigger than yours" stuff.
    Hung the bear up on the scale..... 120 lbs.
    His buddy started laughing
    He tried to defend it, "It's not THAT small"
    Me, "Your bear and I weigh the same"

    All eyes turn to me....

    And then the hunting buddy had to leave the room he was laughing so hard.
