We stopped on the shores of Jackson Hole Lake while kayaking and discovered this weird looking elk skull with non-typical antlers. One side looked normal, but the other side had antlers growing from the frontal skull like a unicorn.
I think it happens when they jump that fence and don't quite clear it sometimes it flipps them over on their head pretty hard. Ive seen a couple shot like that and when you skin out the head you can see where the whole skull plate was broken and healed back in a deformed kind of way making the antlers grow that way.
Here is the scenario... you sit in your 2 piece climbing stand and your foot inadvertently bumps the lower section while there is no weight on it - and it slides down the tree, out of reach!
OK, you are safe - you have a string tied from the upper section that you are sitting on and the foot portion that slid 4-5 feet down the tree. All you have to do it pull the other section up, reposition it and you are back in business, correct?
Have you ever tested this theory?
