Nice rifle and a nice buck congrads. It sounds like the hornady interbond did its job, expanded and passed on thru leaving an exit wound.

Congratulations!!! I am really impressed with the thickness of the antlers.

Man that's a monster buck, congratulations.

Picture at the taxidermist

Marc
Looking closely at the picture of your deer at the taxidermist, who broke the right side eye guard off? I know it will be repaired, but its odd, because in my experience, the "full grown brow tine" doesn't usually break off, not even during the shedding period or cycle. Sheds usually break at the skull, and tines usually break off in the early growth period. Just strange. So who done it?

It's not broken Danno, I should have posted a better picture when he dropped off at Advanced Taxidermy. Here's a better pic.

Looking harder at the other photo, that eye guard tine is there, just well blended in with the main beam and the G2 tine. If your taxidermist knows how, have him score your deer. He should score well. Be sure to post a picture of your mount when its done, maybe a couple of views.

That is a great looking buck! It has the mass and symmetry of a older, well fed buck. Any estimate on age?

My taxidermist will measure and register him into the FROW record book (Ontario's version of B&C). He's also a Board Member and the buck measured just over 153 gross (approx. 147 after deductions). Will lose a little after drying out. Don't know his age, but he was the biggest old swamp buck in the area. I believe the size of his rack started going downhill the last year or two.
