    Do trophies always look a lot smaller once cleaned up

    I shot a big bodied buck the other evening and he had what I thought might just make a medal. But in the cold light of day he is just a good buck and a lot smaller than the Bronze medal I have on the wall. I think that this a common occurrence where things look better late at night than in the cold light of day?

    Rather akin after a few too many sherbets to bedding a fox, but waking up next to a dog.......

    It is a well known fact that all Roe Bucks lose 150 gramms immediately after you pull the trigger!

    They always look bigger when walking about, than in your hand, unless they are real monsters !.
