I bet I can make at least 30 calls out of them, polished to look like ivory.

So far I have only found the left shed antler. It is 32" long and the brow tine is 12" Last year he was 26.5" and had a 7" brow tine.He is getting fairly tame after being here for a couple of years. Had a spike jump in with him a couple of weeks ago.So now have 4 Axis in with the Nannies. Thanks for the welcome backs. I have never left I just am not posting where I get into pi**ing contests with some on here.

That's a very, very nice buck Don and I agree that posting here is a pain sometimes. I used to post a lot of pics but I'm really tired of the low fence/ high fence nonsense. Too many times I got PM'd about where was the animal you shot or photographed. Last year I sat in multiple ground blinds for 8 days to photographed a giant buck on a 200,000 plus acre ranch and got a Email that basically said the guys 10 year old could do as well. Since I retired I've found other things to do.
