    I understand wanting to put those on a mount to display. Great idea. And even saying "yes we know it's not correct, but that's the best we could do with the mount we had" still doesn't cover how bad that looked lol. I'm no whitetail expert, but ANYBODY could look at that mount and look at the actual deer after it was harvested the next year and see that it was obviously wrong. Pretty ballsy to take that mount to the classic with the antlers set like that IMO. I hate the fact that these guys are trying to make something bigger than it already is. Those sheds are phenomenal! Don't ruin them by trying to make them more than what they are.

    Agree the mount looked terrible.

    As far as broken beams and tines, the rules were changed some years back to allow for them to be reattached if it's a perfect fit. Not sure of it's true, but I heard the Brewster 320" from IL this past year also knocked off a good portion of his big antler on his death run.

    These IN sheds were scored as sheds. No spread credit, to be clear.

    So i noticed the trail cam pics that Jordan posted were from 2015? Are the time stamps correct? and then from what i understand the animal was killed the next year? I just wonder why after 2 years this is the first ive heard of this animal....i find that a little odd....

    It's correct. Sheds were found spring 2016. deer was killed fall 2016. I'd keep it under wraps until after the deer was dead too =)

    The kill buck was pretty well known and had been in NAW a year or 2 back. The sheds have recently come to light.

    Looking at the real mount next to the mounted sheds "my expert opinion" is that the sheds are too wide there as well...

    But what do I know.

    Agree. maybe a common base on the G2/G3 on the left side? Still not sure that would add up.

    The buck from Marshall Co. that placed first in the archery non typical field. I'm a little confused on why that buck was at the 515 booth, and being talked up as being taken in the 515 footprint? I'm from Marshall Co. and that's truly an amazing animal, but Marshall Co. is not in the 515 area code. Hop, skip and a jump away, but why try telling people otherwise is where my confusion lies for a scoring guess competition? Especially if the deer was entered in the contest clearly under the 641 area code.

    That was a heck of a deer. I had read somewhere they thought that deer was only 2 or 3? Looking at the mount it sure didnt look like a "mature" deer....imagine if that deer would have another year or two...not taking anything away from it by any means....

    Pretty easy to tell on that shed buck its mounted far too wide , just look at the brow tines. It’s a dead giveaway , they don’t look one bit natural or correct. In this case with all the pictures and real mount right there it should be obvious !
