    Just got these pics through from the US.
    One of my rams has been finished - won 2nd in Texas

    Pretty stoked
    The other one is narrower but a deeper curl
    Cant wait to see the Axis done!

    I was a bit nervous opening this thread, thought it could be animal farm all over again!

    Should be no probs
    Spoke to MAF last time I came through from wk and they basically said if they have been done properly (ie mounted) then no dramas at this end, issue come from fresh skins etc

    Mrs had been trying to convince me for us to head back in a few wks as there is a big Whitetail roaming around they have been saving for me.
    House?.. Whitetail?.... House?.... Whitetail?... Whitetail.. whitetail...

    I'm easy, but I have yet to convince the Mrs that 60" of Moose antler above the TV will look sweet LOL

    Uh huh thought the same thing but would have been more worried if the title was Ewe mount.
    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

    Around $2k US - shot, tipped, dressed and mounted

    This one was more than I expected, as this fella was behind the one I shot - 2x for 1 shot
    Will Euro mount the other

    That is uber cool, looks like something from one of those ''best of the west'' longrange shooting clips on youtube. What a great trophy to have, well done.

    Awesome. I I'd love to shoot a big ram like that. What a cool head.

    Very nice and may I say cheap? 2k hunted, shot and mounted? Bloody cheap, well done mate. I want one now but going to Sask and BC to do whitetail and moose. Brother lives there so should save on the accomodation side of things. Can you get those in Canada or is it a different species Matt?
    Do what ya want! Ya will anyway.
