Brow Tine Fixx

Finally found a brow tine for my Bull! With help from my Retired Taxidermist we got it looking fairly good!! I am not fixing the drop off his right side, because I have no idea what it would of looked like!! Thought I would share a few pic's!

Shoulder

Shoulder Mount for sure!! Hopefully be done in a couple weeks. We both found bullets in this animal! The same kind! He found 5 and I found 1 just in the skin.  Do you know what this kind of bullet is? ( .500 diameter or larger)

bullet

Good job on fixing that brow tine.  I've had to do that a time or two myself.

That bullet is a Powerbelt.  The little tab in the center of the base is where the plastic gas seal snaps on.

Wow!  Six bullets in him.  He definately died from lead poisoning.

That is

what other people have said! Powerbelts! None of them even penetrated the tissue. When the taxidermist fleshed my cape, he ran into them. 5 were perfect kill shots. I cut my cape far back as to always have enough!!LOL!!! But he said they were in a good group behind the shoulder! He was tough, because he took two rounds from the 30-378 and acted as if a bee stung him!!
