Default Got My YO Ranch Axis Buck back!

My Axis buck from the YO Ranch area hunt was delivered yesterday. First of all, I have to give a "shout out" to Derek & the Crew over at Woodbury Taxidermy for doing an incredible job on this deer. He's my best Axis ever (just over 36" main beams with good eye guards). The shot was a perfect 25 yard heart shot and only a 30 yard tracking job. Just like it's supposed to be, right LOL? Anyway, 2014 was really a Dream Season for me. He's the last of three trophy animals taken in 2014: 36" Axis, 31" Velvet Axis and 190 1/8" 13-pt WT! I think I've been demoted to only hunting "trophy" does, spikes & pigs because I'm running out of wall space . But...Let's just see what the 2015 season brings us...which is just a short 3 months away!

Is the YO still running hunts? Either way that's a fine axis. Those eye guards are huge!

Thanks for the comments. I got the idea of the plaques and grass from a magazine article that talked about adding "life" to your mounts. The plaques usually have the ranch, date and city where the animal was taken plus I've added the broadhead or a section of the arrow to them. (I know...that "closet architect" is still in me . And as for more room? This is only the den area with the exotics. The game room and my office upstairs are full of bow kill whitetails and ducks, LOL. That's what happens when everyone in your house including the wife hunts too. But a good problem to have!
