A couple of nice 5x 6 Both would have been 6x6 if they both were not missing a brow tine on the left side. Not sure what they score maybe you can help me out. I hydro dipped the heads. The bigger one had a really nice base and was really heavy.
Wow that one you are holding is a really good elk. I would venture to say that he may go in the 330-350 range. The smaller one hard to tell but maybe the 280-300 range. I have to ask but did you find those both here in Colorado? And where they together when you found them. I have found similar stuff but not uaually close together or at the same time frame. Congrats on a great find.
I don't know much about scoring either but I would make a guess close to the 330 range. No matter what they are both nice bulls. I do european mounts all the time but don't know much about hydro dipping. I like the way it looks I'll have to check it out more.
Those are two awesome mounts - especially the larger one! I wish I knew of that hydro-dipping before I took my antlers off of the elk head I harvested as that would be one cool mount versus the simple plaecment of them on an oak shield mount. Darn it! Maybe the next set I get this is what I do. Just awesome mounts you have there - thanks for sharing!
I have a friend who loves to use deer feeders that will hold like 5- 40 pound bags of feed or corn, and wants help hauling them deep into the woods where he has amazingly located the perfect spot for this 30 pound battery operated tripod that will only be there for a couple of weeks each year. My suggestion to him was to build some kind of light weight gravity feeder that could be strapped to a tree or a fence post if permenant, and this is what we came up with. I am...
