NIce looking mount and good to see you got him back. I almost never get anything mounted as I hate waitng to get my horns back and usually end up just doing a european skull mount myself instead, That and I just don't have the wall space to ahng very much up.
Congratulations again and good luck with this years hunt as it should be coming up very fast.
Jim Zumbo, Craig Boddington, Ron Spomer and Wayne Van Zwoll are all solid contributers to the modern hunting literature. Through their gifts (both hunting and writing) they make us better hunters. Whether it is letting us learn from their mistakes or by teaching us new techniques,they help us harvest more game. But I suggest looking to the oldies, the fathers of the outdoor writing craft, to learn tricks that you might have not used.
I chose to shoot the 270 winchester because I grew up...
