Thread: Silver from Herefordshire

  1. #1

    Silver from Herefordshire

    I shot this buck last year during the rut.

    Having cleaned the head, I left him to dry out over winter and thought I would weigh it. On weighing it I thought it might be in with a chance of a medal.

    So off it was packed with another head I had 2 days before this one. Off to Dorset to be measured by Richard Prior.

    After a really nice phone call from Mr Prior, he was pleased to inform me that it had made a silver. To say I was pleased was an understatement.

    Just waiting for a nice peice of silver birch to dry out to mount him on.

    The other head was a couple off a bronze.

    Cracking head Jono, well done mate.

    Life should be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving skidding in sideways, Merlot in one hand, Cigar in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming WOO HOO what a ride!

    Very nice Jonathon, very nice indeed. It is a very symetrical head, nicer than some!

    Blindness to suffering is an inherent consequence of natural selection. Nature is neither kind nor cruel but fiercely indifferent.
