Default 19 month wait, deer is here.

Posted a thread a while back about my deer being at the taxidermy for month 19. EST. 6-8 months. Thought it was a loss cause, but got the text yesterday and finally have him back in my possession. Just a couple pictures. Me nitpicking the last picture there are quite a few spots on the hide looks like loss fur. Would that be from the tanning process? Either way I am happy with it and it is home.

Nice buck. What county looks like East Texas. It may be from the tanning process or tannery. From my experience a little hair loss is inevitable. Do to scabs scars and what nots . Looks great and glad you got him back.

I bet a lot of the "loss fur" was already an issue from scars, scratches, and scrapes from being a deer.

Congrats on the mount

Could be scars from fighting that you didn’t notice originally. Nevertheless, a nice buck !

The first picture looks like a hole that wasn't sewn up properly.
The second picture looks like false cuts (shaved too thin in the tanning process).

Good buck, congrats. He was mature, I can see his calloused knees in the LDP. Is it just me, or does the brisket hair swirl look off? Maybe it is the coloring? Glad you got him back.

Yes sir East Texas, deer in my area usually don't get this big.

Could have missed it, but there are quite a few on him. Was just curious as other mounts do not have them that I have noticed not like this.

Congrats on the mount
Thanks

Thanks, just happy to have it back. But, didn't look right once I to it back. Those are just a couple there are quite a few all over the mount.

Ya not good at aging, but based on the amount of grey one of the oldest I have shot from looking at him. Looking back at pictures appears to be his coloring. I have one picture that you can see his brisket in and same color.

That's a dandy! Noticed he had a broke brow tine, so he was obviously a bit of a fighter, might be the reason for the scars.

I would like to hear the story behind taking him.

Thanks. Yes and the noThis was on our family property that we have owned for 50+ years if I had to guess. So more sentimental, than a giant. But I believe this is the biggest deer taken out of there. Our deer donít hardly ever get over 140ís. Just a last minute decision to hunt. Doe came out he stood back and wouldnít come out. He was still in the woods and gave me a shot and took it.
