Super forkies "SPORKS!!!"
« on: December 18, 2008, 06:06:02 PM »
Alright, it seems to me that we started a giant two point thread, but dang if I can find it, so we are going to start another one.  This thread is for those special two points out there that are just incredible.  SOme of us hate them for their genetics, some of us love them for their incredible bones.   If I stumble upon the old thread that I thought we made, I'll merge them.    Until then, start posting those super forkies.

Here's a couple two pts we got in winthrop a few years back!  They both have eyeguards.  The heavy one right of center is mine and was a very old buck.  Saw one there 2 years ago that would push 24".

I suppose you could call that a G4 but to me its a main frame 2 point with a tiny extra, not a shooter for me but to each his own.

I didn't say anything about it being a shooter.  I just asked why you considered it a forkie when it clearly is not.

Mine from a few years ago.


The left and right eye guards. The one tine looked as if it wanted to fork, but didn't.

Well if you want to get technical I suppose you're right, but then if we are talking technical then there are only a couple pics on here that would qualify as 2 points, as several of them have brow tines which are counted officially. The post was started to show pics, which is what everyone on this site likes to see, I seriously doubt they care about a brow tine or 2" G4 :dunno: Just enjoy the pics or maybe post some of your own.

No need to get all defensive.  I just wondered why you considered it something that it is not.

I'm not defensive at all, you clearly didn't understand when I told you "I suppose you could call that a G4 but to me its a main frame 2 point with a tiny extra, not a shooter for me but to each his own." so I thought I would explain it so you might better understand, I thought it was pretty clear. :dunno:
