Great video - so cool to watch you work your way onto and off that mountain.   One hell of a hike!

Nice addition with the video. Hiking solo through blowdown timber after dark is no joke.👍🏼

Here are some pictures of the completed mount done by Fidalgo taxidermy.  Garth did a really nice job capturing the old buck character.  Had to use a mule deer body and custom mold the head as there was no mount that existed with those head dimensions  :chuckle:  Got to go with 3 nails to pick both of ours up together as they were finished at the same time.  It was a picture we had been wanting to get with both those bucks side by side

As I said in 3 Nails post - I can't get over the size of the heads on those things.  Simply massive!  I saw eleven BT today down in Mason Co. - they all look like Chihauhuas compared to your buck.

Congrats!! What a toad!
I am not opposed to golf, for I suspect it keeps armies of the unworthy from discovering deer.
