"What does hard vs soft boss look like?" Has crossed my mind periodically in recent weeks and I always get distracted before searching so this thread was helpful! To the OP: if you were just asking for informational purposes, it sounds like you got some info and I hope you arent turned off by some blunt honesty, no one means any harm or insult by such answers. It sounds like a good taxidermist will make him look just like your photo no matter what. If you were asking because of concern of you were told he was hard boss and mature by the PH and you suspect different, dont let it get to you. It doesn't change the experience and memories you will have forever. If that wasnt a concern, and he is as advertised then ignore that sentiment. Either way, he will look great on the wall and you will have lasting memories and congratulations on your bull!
