    VERY cool find. Sucks you didn't get a crack at one of them, but you got to them before the tree rats got to them and chewed them up. Looks like 2 very nice deer. I like euro skulls, but I'd find 2 big capes and make a sweet pedestal mount with those dandies!

    I agree with Shannon. The two of them would make one awesome looking pedestal mount...

    I just mounted another set of locks just this week. I like both the mounts and the skulls! Those guys that tell you the "rut didnt start" evidently dont know what the rut is!Once the velvet comes off, those bucks are pushing things, and eachother. It just intensifies until its time to breed. Nice find, I envy you!! I collect locked buck pictures, did you take many of the dead deer as they layed???

    That was 2 great bucks. They would make an awesome mount. I wonder just how often this happens and no one finds them.
