    Muntjac Buck

    Far and away my best Muntjac ever.

    Unfortunately it was not much of a stalk really. I saw a Muntjac Doe walk out of a small wood around 130yds away from where I was standing. A few seconds later this old boy followed her.

    I already had the sticks set up and a 100gn .243 in the engine room dropped him on the spot.

    I have used the chart from the CIC Red Book and my measurements come out to 72.2 points. Anything over 61 is a gold medal. I shall be taking the head to the Midland Game Fair to get it officially measured.

    Well pleased Click image for larger version.

    Thats a really nice buck you got yourself there mate! You should have cut more of the cape off though, and that would have made a nice head/shoulder mount especially with it being a gold!! But never the less will look great on the wall and very well done!

    Thanks Roe. There is loads of cape left on it but I folded it up neatly to take the photos. Cheers, Chris.

    Once I have had it measured it will be going to "Benny" Bennett at Hainford to be mounted.
    He has done a lot of taxidermy for me and I can highly recommend him. He has a display in the Duck Dry tent at the Midland Game Fair next month.
    Cheers,

    Chris.

    A very nice munty buck indeed - he's a cracker for sure. Would be very interested to see the photos once the taxidermy is completed.

    It's funny how some of the best bucks come from the least remarkable stalks. I've had the same myself where they just walk out in front of you at the right/wrong time.

    Cracking beast mate

    He will look nice on the wall

    You might have to allow 90 days for him to dry out before you get him measured or so I thought

    I think that only applies when points are awarded for weight. Muntjac heads are only measured, not weighed.

    Cheers,

    Chris.
