View Full Version : Locked bucks
11-03-2004, 06:22 PM
Well I ended my year by finding two locked bucks Monday, one was already dead and bloated and the other one was still alive so I put and arrow in him. One was a 9pt that scores 142" and a 17pt that scores 166.75". I called the DNR and he came out and took some pics and gave me a salvage tag for the 9pt that was aready dead. I will try to post some pics.

Wow, thats one heck of a way to harvest a buck, and get locked antlers.Are you going to seperate them... I wouldn't!!!

I had to in order to cape out the 17pt. they were so tight the 17pt had one sticker in the 9pt forehead. It rubbed threw his hair and rubbed a gruve in his skull. I had to cut the skull plate in half on the 9pt but I am gonna mount them together so I will put it back together.I'm a taxidermist so I got a lot of thinking and work ahead of me.

Those are great pics. You'll have to post pics of the mount once you get it completed. Congrats.

What a sight.It's to bad it happen's but at least one of them did not have to suffer until it died.I'm surprised that the coyotes did not try to get in on them.
Great pic's!Thank's for letting us get a look at them.

Thanks guys and yes I am to shocked the coyotes didnt get it because my wife shot a doe early in the season and we went to look for it in the morning and it didnt go but 40 to 50 yds but the coyotes had it torn apart. My wife was pretty mad because it was her first deer with a bow, but what can you do except kill every coyote you see.

Great pictures and what a find. To bad you couldn't receive a salvage tag for both deer and keep hunting although that is really a great trophy. Don't forget to post your finished mount pictures. Congratulations.

thumbs up,,, man that is too cool...
11-04-2004, 12:03 PM
Wow, that's amazing....both beautiful animals...tough way to go out, good thing you came across them.
I imagine there was no coyote damage, because maybe the guy who was still alive was able to fend any off. ???
Sweet racks !
