Now, bear in mind, he had already shed his antlers in this pic. I'm hoping he makes it to next season. He'd make a great shoulder mount.

He's certainly a fine one Homer Jay. Clearly good genetics. If you find his sheds be sure to post a picture. You might consider getting a group of friends together for an organized shed hunt. I believe the standard practice is to provide beer and BBQ at the end of the search.

That is a civilized and thoughtful suggestion. When/if I do, you are invited, good sir.

20 years of hunting and running backroads and Iíve yet to see one. They are as elusive as the chupacabra. I bet that one, when fully mature would go in the mid to high teens, a true trophy.

It takes specialized gear and circumstances, first you need a Yeti full of beer and be road hunting with a spotlight at night.

Looks like he's outside the fence. Wonder if he is hunting his neighbors fence line? smile

Is that in an AR county? If it is, I doubt if the horns would be outside the ears. Or do the buck restrictions not apply here?
