    The Deer, well I finally got some pictures scanned, hopefully I can get them attached this time. The bucks offical green score was 89 4/8 and after the drying period he ended up 88 even. They do shrink a bunch!
    The last two pictures were for the EHJ article. Guy had me take more because my field photos were sub-par. Click image for larger version.

    What a pig Halfslam! Great job!

    I'll have to commit that kind of time when I draw. I've learned over the years that I'd rather burn points on one quality hunt a year and invest plenty of time to do it well. In the next 2-3 years I'd like to draw a quality antelope tag and spend 3 weeks and kill the best buck possible.

    UH, thanks. How many points do you have? I agree, taking the time to invest the scouting and time in a good tag pays off. Being able to scout, find what you are looking for, patterning him and keeping tabs on him until opening morning then being able to harvest him is what hunting is all about. I spent 15 days finding and following this buck and it paid off.
    The funny thing was I knew he was a 'booner' but I had a hard time judging him because his head was so damn big. The taxidermist refered to him as a 'mule head' and said he had the biggest head of any antelope he had ever seen. He had to order a special form and modify it. He always ran with a bunch of does and I never saw another buck around him until one day a 13" buck ran in and tried to impress his girls and my buck ran him off. It'd nice being able to compare a 13" buck to a heavy 17" buck.
