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.
Hunt with your kids not for them.

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!

I definitely like the look of more body on there.

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
The only thing I've learned for sure hunting is even if I'm maken tag soup at the end of every season from here on out, I will hunt as long as I'm on the top side of the soil.
