Thanks guys. Yeah wall space is filling up and still have 2 more coming from last season.

This season is looking good and hopefully not a crazy rollercoaster ride. Probably won’t knock down 506” of antler again but should do a good amount of freezer filling.

Jason,
Great final home for a special buck. Gio did an awesome job on Jr. as well.

Wonderful memories, with two or three more Jrs. coming along, need an addition on the man cave!

Realize you are just kidding, but for perspective on size he was 17+” wide
