That is a great looking set of curls! Take it to a taxidermist and see what they can do with it.

It didn't come from Arkansas did it? Several years ago when my uncle passed away he had a great collection of heads and animals. He had a terrific world animal head collection. They moved it from their house in Michigan to this big place in Arkansas so that he could display more. Most were taken by archery. Not wanting to appear a greedy relative I waited two years and then asked what they were going to do with his collection. He only had a daughter and she is what I would call a material girl. My aunt said they hauled them all to the dump less than a month after he died. Along with his bow collection. They were taking up space and she was moving to Arizona. :lol:

Not from Arkansas as far as I know . I went to the B&C web site and the 1 Bighorn is like 45 inch curl , both horns real symetrical this one is 40 and 36 inches broomed off . Personally I like the brooming , if you've been around awhile ya get some character . The bases are somewhere around 16 inches . All the measurements are rough as I dont have a seamstress tape .
