My Grandpa’s Other Bench Leg Bucks.
« on: November 28, 2022, 08:13:44 PM »
These are just the big ones he got over the years, he got deer every year when he was a young man. If it wasn’t a exceptional one I didn’t take pics.

If you think I ruined a hunting area with these pics, and locations I didn’t . The area now has lots of ranchets with homes on the land, and the deer just aren’t there like this anymore. Progress sucks for ungulates.🤯

Hope you enjoy.

1st pic 1967 McClanahan thicket buck Burdoin Mtn, notice the sticker on the left side rear fork.

2nd pic buck was killed in the Snowden area 1952.

Back when bucks weren't all shot out their first year of life.  Nice to see some age class.

Great bucks! Thanks for sharing.

Bumping River elk he got, don’t know the year. It was shoulder mounted and hung over the fire place in the homestead log cabin on Burdoin mountain. Grandpa sold off the ranch and left the mount, went back later and the hide had gone bad, so he just took the antlers.

Those are some really cool old bucks.  Thanks for sharing.  Would be fun to mount a few of those on the old trapper packs.  Can't believe the mass when bucks got some serious age on them back in the day.
