A couple bou racks from the last few years. One I stumbled on in the brush, should have packed it out, but had about 70lbs of moose to pack instead, so I left it. Died just as it was ready to strip the velvet or just after. Horns were in great shape, but I was lazy so it stayed...

The "captain" pose was on a weathered in sheep hunt day... Saw this rack about 4 days prior, but didn't want to walk the 3 miles to go look at it... We got board and went for a walk hoping the clouds would lift a bit to see sheep, no luck... Also missed a black wolf about 10 minutes later.

Found the elk rack at about 9,000 ft. Love spotting racks laying on the hillside from a long ways off :)

On a bad EHD year I will find 20 to 30 dead whitetails bucks. On one of the worst years I found close to 100 dead deer. These are the best of the whitetail bucks I have found over the years. Most of them died of EHD

I found the buck frozen halfway in a lake, above ice was picked clean, below ice was preserved. My friend and I found the lion while pheasant hunting. About a year or two old cub. I think someone shot him with a shotgun while bird hunting.
