Great buck, but he looks he has been dead for more than one year though to me.

Once i learned that i didn't "NEED" to kill something, and that if i did kill something all the fun stopped and work began, i was a much better hunter.

Very nice. I can't believe the rodents didn't destroy the antlers.

I've found some sheds from larger bucks that had very little damage, but in the picture you can see the end of the left main beam and some of the kickers where worked over pretty good.

Seems the larger antlers are a bit tough for those little critters.

That rack is in really good shape for being out as long as it was and a good taxidermist wouldn't have too much trouble restoring it.

I don't know about that one having laid out in the East Texas humidity and rain. It looks kind of chalky and brittle already in those pics. Might be in better shape than it looks though.

Those antlers are in very good shape to have laid on the ground in East Texas long enough to have bleached out. The squirrels and rats are very hard on antlers. I have had very poor luck finding any shed antler in my neck of the woods that have had as little damage as that set. Very fortuitous find for sure.

I think it would be bitter sweet to find that on my place. Shame he didn't make it, great that he was there and probably spread his genes.
