I swear it looked bigger when I dropped him off. \:D

Got it back today. Not a brute by some people's standards, but I'm happy.

I'd be proud of that one... Is that a Wilson county deer?

nice looking buck and mount! Do you think the neck size shrunk or the antlers? That is a nice wide 8!

I admittedly thought the neck was bigger. However, that cape came from a different deer. The cape from my buck couldn't be used.

It is possible he has a smaller neck now. Even with the original cape if the right form isn't used it can shrink by an inch.

Sounds like he didn't do the measurements before hand or ignored them one.

Great deer man.
