I offered to give him a loan if he wanted to have the head mounted.
"I thought about that" he said. "I've seen bigger ones out here and this one has a chip in one of his tines."
"So thanks for the offer but I think I will pass."
Shot at 7:36 AM. A 75 yard shot out of the Taj stand. He could see antlers and his cross-hairs and the rest is history.
For those of you who need a reminder, Shotgun is my fishing buddy and we had a standing date every Wednesday evening this past summer.
I am happier that he got it than if I had shot it myself. Shotgun puts in his time and passes up a lot of deer.
