Default Big 8 is home ... well he has been for several weeks...

I always forget to post the taxi picture of my animals and since I'm slow on the draw on working today... here you go.

Big 8 was shot in October 2019. He was 4.5 years old and had been seen by every hunter in 5 miles. And because he was so visible, I decided to take him as soon as I had the opportunity. I was hoping for a P&Y but alas, unofficial tape indicates he's a little short.

Fat Albert, on the right, was shot in December 2017. He was 7.5 years old and was the biggest thing in the woods we've ever seen. I normally would not have paid for a full shoulder mount on a buck with antlers like that, but my friend talked me into it because of the boy's size.

Really like the fireplace/mantle, with the bucks on both sides it looks great.

Good looking mount.
Is your dog having a stare down with the coyote?

That dog! He could care less about the coyote. He's staring out the window. He actually hates having his picture taken and I thought he would have left the room. He did just get up from his bed.
