    I think, that in itself, is what a great hunt is all about whether it is a personal best or average head

    It's not a dark timber. What are they rubbing on?

    Hebes, beech saplings, monkey scrub I presume. He was only a couple kms from bush line. Would definitely darken up over the next few weeks once they start wallowing, ripping up ground and marking trees properly.

    What a fantastic head!
    Some "Trophy" hunters/game managers would lament the lack of bey tines and even consider it a cull but not I.

    That is a true "trophy"
