That’s a nice Colorado Muley deer that your father shot. Congrats to him and filling the freezer. Sorry that you did not fill your tags this year. But by the sounds of it although you didn’t harvest anything you got something more from the hunt. You experienced wonderful country and saw some amazing animals, and that’s sounds like an accomplishment in itself. I myself tag filled or not would have enjoyed every minute of it! So congratulations to you on the experience!! And thanks for sharing.
Congrats to your dad on the nice buck. Where did he shoot it at? Looks like maybe a neck shot? Lots of blood, looks like dropped right there. On your elk hunt its always great to share a hunt with a new and learn new areas and diffren senery
Everyone has different ideas about trophy pictures. Looks around and you will see "long armers," "set behinders," "big cheesers," and "blood covered brutes." I have a few tips to keep your trophy pictures from being laughers or worse yet just plain gross.
#1 Clean it up. Try to avoid bullet holes, gut pile, mass amounts of blood, and the tongue sticking out. You don't want your big buck to look like a angry 1st grader with his tongue out or a MMA fighter during the 3 round.
#2 Long arming...
