Those are some nice deer! ! ! I've never shot anything worth mounting in my opinion....just spikes, a few 4 points and does. I usually just hunt for meat. What ever walks out first is usally what gets shot and most of the time it is doe's.
I like the picture of the Piebald. Lot of ppl don't know what they are. I just mounted a Life Size Piebald last nicht. Wasn't anything huge. Was about 175lb 8 point. It looked like an over size fawn with quarter size spots along it's sides and on it's legs. if I remember totake pics i will post them for ya'll.
From the books that I have read, there is a lot of importance in knowing every nook and cranny of your hunting territory as well as the animal that you are hunting. So scouting as much as possible, just walking the land, will give you a good idea of what's around the corner or what's on the other side of a hill. Which can be very beneficial.
