Thread: long tines!

    long tines!

    [b] hi i have added a photo of a buck i recently shot with massive tines. i have stalked the area where it was shot for many years and have not seen one like this with such height in the antlers. it is a superb head with nice form and as far as im concerned it will not be bettered by myself for such a pretty head

    That certainly is an attractive head. Out of interest, how old was the buck?

    Just from appearance the beast looks on the young side of middle age and would certainly have improved in mass had it been left .But hey its still a beauty. Here is one i shot a few years back with regards front tines this fella was middle age to old.

    ps well done on such a buck.

    thanks l.d.g i have shot many middle age - mature bucks and would also say that it looks on the young side. had a freind look at it and he thinks it to be coming up to middle age. im not a massive trophy hunter and dont get the chance for many on my ground in somerset so this is to be a once in a lifetime trophy for myself. i have land in dorset which regularly produces good bucks and have passed off the chance many a time in replacement for cull bucks
