Coues Pickup Gallery
Jim Mullins – freak of the woods
I am a sucker for antler character, regardless of what type of critter grew it! What cool, abnormal, sheds or skulls have you guys found?
This one is a Coues. The story behind this is one of my brothers friends found this buck and it’s skeleton by a tank in 6A. He never even touched it, he didn’t care! He said it was “JUST a SMALL RACK” and didn’t want to waste his energy packing it out! My Bro told me about it and I jumped in the truck and jammed up there and found it! I have some cool photos of it covered in snow, I will try to find them, and I GLADLY packed it out for myself! It didn’t look like a lion kill and it was several months after the last hunt, so I don’t know what killed it, but I’m glad not everyone likes what I like! JIM>
This is another cool find. I found this shed about 2 miles as a crow flies from where that skull was found. I found it the same year as the skull and it looked to be from the previous year. I don’t think it’s the same buck, but it could be! There is a definite difference in the bend on the beam, very similar on everything else though, maybe it is a genetic abnormality and not an injury?
