Birthday Gift for dad

 Dad shot this buck back in the mid 90's in the Grassy Butte area. He never thought it was decent enough to mount, but I always thought it was a great buck, so for his birthday, I found an extra cape this past fall and had my taxidermist mount it. Turned out great. Still some drying to do on the cape, but looks good! Happy Birthday pops! Gross scored a touch over 140.  pretty much a  straight 4 x 4 with about a 1.25 inch g4 on the deers right side. Special thanks to Adrian Mittesteadt (Hazen) for the taxidermy work. Photo is off a phone, so not the best quality.

That baby would hang on my wall!!  140" 4x4 is a big deer period!!  Nice buck and mount.

"When we step into the outdoors, we have the privilege of standing in the presence of God through the power and majesty of His creation. That makes hunting more than a sport or a hobby. It's a calling to something greater. And that transforms the places that we stand into something more than a cropfield or a pasture or a mountain. It makes that place Hallowed Ground."
