I don't know the story but that looks like a leaf rake stuck on the head of a deer! What a nice rack!!

Hate to tell you but that's not the Illinois roadkill deer. Here's a picture of it and I thing it net scored down in the 170's because of the right forked G2. I also have the story of it but it's in a book at home.
