Sorry Master Chief, not trying to show you up, I just stumbled on this today.

First I found some hair on the ground. A little further down the trail there were the bones.... Looks like it died within the past month or so. The head was still attached to the spine. Gonna be messy preparing this for a euro mount!



Some palmation



This will make a very nice euro. Shame he died.

I think the cause of death could have been vines... His rack was all tangled up in honeysuckle vines and one sapling had an old rub and another sapling was bent down sideways. Maybe he got stuck long enough for the yotes to get him. He was 3.5 or possibly 4.5 y/o.

What a shame. But glad you found him. I found a similar one like that last week, only I suspect the one I found was most probably just unrecovered after someone took a low-probability long-range pot shot (simply because I found him in thigh-high weeds about 500 yards from but in direct view of a rifle tower stand).

I'd also speculate someone might have had the thrill of shooting him (or shooting "at" him).
But then failed to find him.

I was thinking the exact same thing. It will keep me crashing through briars even when almost all my skin has been scraped off

I know what you mean about the briars. I actually wear my coveralls to prevent getting cut up.

I'm always game for a friendly contest. My biggest shed is only 50" but I'll find a 70" one just fer you \:D
