    Took a header

    My son went out Saturday morning to his usual spot. Missed a doe at 10:00-ish. Took a headshot and missed. She looked around and trotted off with her YOY.
    On the way out he spotted an antler next to a log (that we've both walked past multiple times). He says he thought maybe he actually snuck up on a bedded buck. (LOL. My son is not stealthy).
    Anyway it was attached to the rest of the head. Here it is next to the one I shot on Friday. Pretty impressive, nice mass and 18" inside spread. 7 pt.

    You didn't teach your son to take head shots

    Cool find! Always wonder what a nice buck like that would die of. He's got some good mass on the bases, maybe he was a senior citizen and died of old age.

    I didn't actually teach him to, but he's seen me do it a couple times. I asked why he didn't wait for a clear lung shot, he said it was the only shot he had. Damn kids.

    That little thing, no, I'll just stick the head in a bucket of water and let nature do it's thing. I have four on the wall much bigger and a few more in the basement that I should've mounted. Running out of room unless it's real big. I don't even know where I'll put my bear, maybe get rid of some of my wife's dust collectors. LOL.
