    Here are two trophies that will always be great memories for me. Both animals taken with rifle.

    Antelope taken in Harding County, South Dakota
    Muley taken in White River Nat'l Forest, Colorado

    Please post photos of your trophies, too. State whether taken with bow, rifle, shotgun, etc. Small game, upland game, waterfowl, fish, varmint photos welcomed!

    Here's a pic of my first buck taken 20 years ago. I shot him in a drained peat bog in Northern Mn. It took over an hour for two guys to drag him half a mile.

    My antelope is about the same length, maybe a tad heavier in the horns. The funny thing is that the taxidermist's mold is more deer-sized than antelope-sized. Makes it look like the antelope must have dressed out around 130 pounds! And, heck, after I'd gutted him, I picked up the hind legs with one hand. "Aw, yeah, he was a big 'un! We grow 'em big out at Marfa!" Or some such BS. :D

    I've only sawed the front of the skull for a couple of mule deer. Not quite as long or high-horned as yours. Nice mount!

    Out shot police officers from five counties for this one. :D

    Here's a Javelina I shot. His tusks are almost 3". Pretty decent boar, I thought. He was the padron of the pack. Took him with a .357 Magnum 4" Rossi M971.

    Retrieverman, is that a 444 Marlin of late 60's vintage?

    EDIT: Actually, I see two marlins, both 444's I think
