Thread: my first medal

  1. #1

    my first medal

    after my recent surprise i had at Weston Park when i took a fallow head in to be measured
    i was asked to post a few pics by a few members
    story goes
    i shot this beast , a couple of years ago late one september
    on a recently planted field which now had a bit of wet on it , which made dragging impossible
    ok it was a little to heavy for me to drag
    so cautiously i drove across the field hoping not to make a mess or even get stuck
    on struggling to get it into the back of the motor as it was a big lad
    45 mins aprox later i was back on solid track with a big grin across my sweat covered face
    once back at the larder i could examine the head a little closer
    following a phone call to a cic judge a few years earlier about another Fallow i had shot just for a rough guide on measurements
    i deemed this latest beast still not big enough to qualify for a medal going by the info i had recieved
    so for the last few years it has sat in the garden of my taxidermist just in-case he needed one
    luckily for me it was still there and since i hav moved to a bigger house i had a little wall space
    i suggested i had better hav it back as it was the biggest i had ever shot
    so on that
    Weston Park it was
    a day of shopping and anticpation wondering yes or no
    as it happened it went BRONZE
    so 40 later, a few words of congratulations and a jaw that almost hit the floor
    my first ever medal
    i was shocked as i am not and never will be a trophy hunter in that sense
    here's a few pics of what could of been lost for ever

    just goes to show
    all that glitters is not gold
