Thanks for the kind words. The whole experience was amazing and I cant thank my friend enough! Chris wants to measure him and then he will be on the wall.

very nice stag. I am guessing a lowland stag? With a head as big as that. Was it Devon?

Yes, from the Thetford area of Suffolk. Breckland stags; the biggest in body weight and antler in the UK.

lovely stag mate. Stags in Scotland would never get to that size. However stalking stags in Scotland is very challenging as the terrain is very difficult. You should book a Scottish trip you wont be disappointed.
This chap took 3 days of climbing mountains ,wonderful country. He dropped to the 30-06 at 170 yrds.

I have been to Scotland for Roe, I do need to go to the Highlands for a red though. As you say, size wise there is no comparison. The hinds down here weigh more than a Highland stag.

He was measured on Sunday having had the required 90 days drying out period. He made CIC Bronze at 173 CIC points :LOL:

Interesting you had him at 8.5 Kg and the score sheet has him at 6 Kg.

Was your finger on the scale when you weighed him? That is a big drop in mass on the skull. I know wet vs dry, but wow.

By the way, Congrats on your Medal Stag.

I think perhaps with all the excitement on the day there was a misreading on the original weighing :LOL:. I witnessed the scoring so I can confirm its gross dry weight is 6Kg.

I have a like new VC .450 I might part with. I had it built in 2013 and it has served me well. Also have a VC fitted leather trunk case for it along with the plastic case it came with. I'll take 14000 for all of it.

Hi Jody,
I have been looking for ideas on the best way to display my European mounts from Africa. I came across some of your shield work and was wondering if you would be willing to make one for me? If so, please let me know the cost. I like the shield with the two spears that you built for a member years ago. Thanks.
