Deadheads - Let's see 'em

Mmm yes. I didn’t bring it out for several years because I was hauling deer or otherwise busy each time I was the vicinity. There were some vertebrae with it in a tight patch of subalpine fir.

I know of two others found within about 3 miles of where it was. All over 9,000’.

I found a smaller bison skull buried in a wash in less than excellent condition a few years prior but left it. Sorta regret it, except I’m sure it made someone else’s day to find it. Different mountain range.

9/9/23. I bumped him at 10 yards in thick cover, and he walked away. I wondered if perhaps he was sick or injured.

4/13/24, 150 yards away. Still in velvet. I’m guessing he died within 2 weeks of when I saw him alive.
 
I found a 5x5 dead head last year. Anyone have tips on cleaning it up? I soaked it and cut the remaining skin off but its still looking pretty gross.
