2011 South Dakota bull elk taken during the current rifle season. The additional pictures show evidence of this bull previously being in a fight with another bull elk. The other elk broke his antler off in this elk’s head. The taxidermist is guessing that the broken antler had been imbedded at least one, if not two, years. The “extra” antler was found to be piercing the skull just behind the left eye of this elk but the surface had healed to the point of not being noticeable.
PS: I like the tee shirt!!
AKA - the guy who knows the guy who will be heralded as the man who kept elk from extinction.
In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. Genesis 1:1

I have a 6x6 on the wall with a piece of of antler stuck in his skull between the horns. Looks as if the other bulls antler split. I had the taxidermist put it back just as it was whe I shot him. Nothing like the pics in this post though.
