Gettin excited for this fall!! days getting shorter starting tomorrow. Must be moving officially into "scouting season".
Yes sir counting them down here!! I am ready to roll out of here!! Great looking buck! I like the dark antlers.
Great buck and very nice mount.
Great looking mount! They did a great job with the little details by the looks of it. I can't wait to get mine back and hung up in my office too! We just finished planting season here so its hard for me to think its already getting to be scouting season!
I also learned a valuable lesson to not leave the cape behind on these higher altitude bucks that are really thick skinned and fat. They really struggled to find a cape that would support these big bases, and it really narrowed down their choices. I am going deer hunting this year with somebody that is experienced in caping, and can hopefully give me some training.
Congrats tttoadman! That thing came out awesome!
Beautiful mount! He's got mass all the way out, congrats on a great buck.
Great looking mount good job thanks for sharing!
