Default Quick - nice axis- should I!

Yes , still in velvet but about tipped out! He broke off about 3Ē of his right front , coddles arenít symmetrical, 35-36 right beam, 33- 34 left and he is a TOAD...

I just looked at a ton of them last week
By comparison He looks old to me. I don’t like the velvet racks, but I would have taken that one.
I’ve only killed two so but he looks delicious to me.

Jeez louise! How'd you let that walk?
A good axis like that one which braved the big freeze is no doubt a trophy and a good eater.
Hope you get him. Do NOT let him walk again

He is old. Left side really good. good beam, front & cottle. Right side weak. tines don't break off in velvet, he looks like he is heavier on the front and broomed off for some reason, Weak cottle. Personally, I would wait for him to get out of velvet so I could get a better look or pass on him completely.

I would let him roll another year. I'm not sure I agree with 35 & 36 though he is for sure big but I would put him closer to 32-34" range. Where in RS are you?

Itís kind of hard to tell on the beams because I only had pics from straight on and from behind and with that mass they will look short but weíve had plenty enough on the ground to get it pretty close

West about 15 miles!

He is definitely mature but I think he has at least another good year
He had started rubbing That left cottle which definitely made it a no go! We have been letting those with more width walk and spread their seed

We have two on the wall in velvet. I will wait for a hard horned one from here on. I had one not too different from that one, and they are large.
