Interesting Allan, it has palmation to the left antler, like several I have shot over the years on ground between Stobo and Hearthstanes. Colin does an outstanding job on Sika as has worked with them a lot. Dropped one off a couple of months ago to get done in the same pose as the Sika stag on the front page of his website, just looking slightly to the right.
The mature sika stags here in the Forest of Bowland often are 'almost palmated' - certainly more so than those I have seen in Dorset of the north of Scotland.
A lovely head and a cracking bit of taxidermy.
