Nice buck, looks like quite an unusual antler shape, did you shoot him from the tower?
Not surprising that he dropped on the spot! he was never going far after being hit with that!
No bullet holes. That's the wall at my local taxidermist's shop. The holes are for pegs he hangs mounts. I put the buck in my 8 year old son's room.
Excellent buck. Must have been during the rut. A whitetail with a rack like that would go never be caught out in the open in daylight. Good for you.
