Now THIS is a fork I would shoot in a heartbeat LOL....Just finished this one up tonight.... Its a wall pedestal and if you notice it has ALOT more body than the standard shoulder mount. My client said I could pick what ever pose I wanted so since he left me plenty of cape I chose this pose.. He really likes it :) Attached File  Blodgett2.jpg   15.55KB   64 downloadsAttached File  Blodgettbuck3.jpg   15.01KB   59 downloads

That is a great Deer. I would not hesitate to drop the hammer on him either.Is it a California Coastal Blacktail? Just a guess because I know for whatever reason some of the Deer on the coast of CA grow some very deep forks.

Actually that one was taken right out my front door... I can see the hill where it was taken as well as a 4 pointer off the same area..

about 25 years ago we shot a forkie that was about that size or a bit bigger. Next time I'm at my parents I'll take a picture of the antlers we have. When I say "we", it took three guys to take down that brute...and it was in D3 zone...Nice buck! and yep, you see a forkie like that and it's dinner time!

That is a purdy buck! I like the mount too. It similar to the one I have. My mount is more square though.

You dont see many big forks like that, or as I was told when I first started hunting, a pacific fork.

Rea thats a beauty. I have always loved those giant forks. one of my partners shot a big fork last season and his bigger brother got away. If im lucky enough to find him during season you'll likely have another big fork to stuffgreat work
