About 12 years ago a few elk got out of a high fence and have been free since then. I knew the exact day they lost their horns from my game cam but never could find any. A neighbor found these and gave them to me. They are 3 1/2 feet tall now time to put them on the wall

that looks like a lot of mass to them. Should look good on the wall.

Had to look it up 10-13 years I'm guessing the sheds are from a 3-4 year old bull
