    Dunno? Unless I owned a bar or the like I would never buy something like that. I would keep something a family member left behind, but not a trophy head off someone I didnt know.
    I would have thought it would be worth way more than whats been bid at the moment.
    Very nice rack shot in country you would struggle to see deer in now.
    Do what ya want! Ya will anyway.

    Deer heads are quite in fashion as far as interior decorating goes at the moment. Look in any new house renovation or decoration mag and I guarantee you will find a set of deer antlers hanging on the wall in it. The missus was looking at some fandangled stupidly expensive trying to sell junk website the other day and found them selling shitty 8-10 point heads that were painted bright colours for big money. I think the one she showed me was about $600 for a silver painted 8 pointer. Thought I should whip a can of paint out, tart up a few of my 11's and 12's and try sell them to some townie sucker for a grand.

    I'm drawn to the mountains and the bush, it's where life is clear, where the world makes the most sense.

    Bloody hell Josh what do you reckon I could get for a pink polka dotted farm bred 30 pointer?
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    Bugger. I have a shed full of antlers and thought I might be able to make a quick quid.

    Think the difficult bit will be getting the can of polka dot paint, ... a good job for the apprentice.
