Oh I see! His other mounted buck certainly makes this record stand out.... Takes all kinds of folks I guess lol.
There's more fun in hunting with the handicap of the bow than there is in hunting with the sureness of pulling the trigger.

I don't think I would fix them personally. I found a broken off piece of antler scouting once. I still have it somewhere in a pile of sheds. Might even still have the picture I took. I'll have to check.

I wouldn’t fix him. I’m with boogie it adds to the character and story.

Dad fixed one of his SD bucks brows that were both broke. Whatever, not a big deal, but I think about it every time I look at it.

Anyone ever see a lateral break like this? It actually broke on two different occasions.

Ok, I remember the Rompala buck, but what did he claim it scored? Also he signed a agreement with Milo?
