    Nice Buck

    Hello all, I shot what I consider a nice buck recently, but I wanted someone with experience to cast their views please.I am not very experienced when it comes to assessing heads.
    One side measured 24 cm and the other 26cm and it was a five pointer. One side was like a javelin.
    Thanks in advance

    I will look if I have a front view of it and put it on here.
    I have prepared the head and yes left it whole at the moment.
    I am not too bothered about trophies however I just wondered how it compared with other heads.
    This is one of the best bucks I have shot only one other compares with it.
    In my limited experience
    Regards

    What does the skull weigh?, needs to be in the region of 450-500g dried out to be worth measuring.

    Do you have the weight of the skull 24 hours after cleaning?
