    Why will he have points deducted?

    Looks good and heavy, a nice strong head,definitely worth a measure. shame about the top points being broken but broken or not i'd be delighted to see the same on my patch. From the photo it looks as if it's a mature animal and probably a good call to take it now before it goes back. Is there much wear on the teeth?

    Extreamly nice head pity it fell to an RTA that would have been one hell of a trophy or rutting buck. Dont worry about peroxide Chris leave that till you come back .ps what weight is it.

    The only reason I can think of is that about 10% of the roe trophy measurement is beauty points, so the contrast against a bleached skull might affect the points for colour. However, colour only accounts for 4 beauty points max, so even here I would think it's tenuous.

    I've found that, IMHO, when bleaching the skull peroxide is most effective when applied immediately after boiling out the head.

    It looks huge chris and your right they can all make medals. But that would have been one nice buck to see strutting his stuff. Glogin i was told by a chap who was just behind chris as it looks like there was a que to pick that one up . . Chris i didnt for one minute think that you would try and pass that off as a stalked buck why would any one do that.? ..

    The fact that its an RTA has got nothing to do with it, your original post never suggested it was shot
    Its still a beauty, there are many RTA,s that make medals and I wish you the best with it.
