Itís a 6x7, and has more points but arenít an inch long the eye guards are easily 4 inches long, and these pics donít show the mass it has. Iím guessing 26-28 inches wide.

Iím going to get it scored at the sportsman show just for heck of it. But the score is meaningless to me.

No need, it has already been scored as ďpricelessĒ could not think of a better trophy to have on the wall!

Very cool story and a beautiful mount! I had a similar desire for one of my grandpa's mounts. But one family member decided they needed everything of his, and being the estate executor, that's exactly what happened. They didn't get my memories though. So glad you ended up with them! Definitely put the story on the back of the plaque so it always stays with the mount, and thanks for sharing your story!

Definitely a conversation piece.  I love those oddballs.  I wanted some of my dad's old horns and just found out my sister took all of them and sold them without telling anyone.

Very cool and great story to go along with them. I've got my dad's biggest buck 3X3 and my grandmothers big 2X2 she harvested in Colorado in 1910.

I truly believe this buck was past his prime, and regressing.
