Default Sika down

Well, after waiting 4 years my finger finslly got the job done!
Spent countless hours watching, stalking, patterning this guy. Studied him for the last 4 years, collected sheds, and admired his offspring.
Friday eve, it all fell into place. The chapter on the 6 yr old came to an end.
Will be getting him scored next week, and then return horns back to the taxi.
Anyone wanna guess his score? A rough measurement is 22 1/2" one side, 22" the other.

Default Sika down

Never had him scored but I shot this free range Sika two years ago.


I shot a young one with my bow this year for meat, and as a result passed on this guy a few weeks later because he was only a 6pt. Well dang I guess the video won't load, but he is a tall and wide Sika
