SC 8pt down
 
Shot this 8pt in SC recently. He's not very wide, but has the tall basket look.What I really liked about him is his main beams are almost touching (1 inch shy). They are definetly fighting and starting to chase. You can see in the firstphoto his left ear is split down the middle from fighting. The second is the best photo of the rack. The third shows how swollen his neck was. He's got lots of character - I thought he'd look good on the wall.

Somthing else I found interesting was the buck was shot from exactly 110 yards with a .300 WSM (using federal 180 gr Accubonds). He was quartering away hard and the bullet entered the deer behind the left shoulder traveling up the neck to the head and never existed. Needless to say, it dropped on the spot, but I had never seen a deer shot with a .300 WSM and not get an exit wound.

Nice buck, congrats.


remingtonshooter1, why would you even say that. Its not your deer, or your money. I personally have 2 mounted that are smaller then that.

NICE BUCK...I would do a european mount...bleached skull...antlers only....very cheap...spend the rest of wat a mount would cost on more gear...Deer hunters can never have too much STUFF!...LOL

Very nice buck. Remingtonshooter, a trophy is in the eye of the beholder. If a person wants to mount a spike, that's his or her choice, and shouldn't be questioned. There is absolutely nothing wrongwith mounting that buck if he chooses to do so. It would be a nice looking mount.I don't mount every buck I kill, but every buck I kill is a trophy to me.
