    I forgot to say... #4 is my favorite!

    Sikome lake is still there? I grew up in that area!

    I still have never seen any so large.. you must have had to be super sneaky .. or do you have a zoom lens?

    Let's admit it.. Sikome lake is a giant manmade pool of bacteria. There is a reason when we were five there were rumors that during the fall when they drained it they found a dead horse (no I don't think that is true.. but the curiousities that float on top of that lake scared me!) Anyways, off topic!

    CRUMB that deer is big. Out of curiousity, is it common for one of the antler's 'branches' to come down like that?

    Wonderful photography!

    Edit: Don't laugh at my original spelling of 'rumors' as 'roomers'... my brain is toast

    Hello there Peanuts, The big rack is non-typical, that is it has
    abnormal points that are non-typical in location (such as points originating from a point or from the bottom or sides of the main beam) or extra points beyond the normal pattern of points. I think the 2 dropped tines make it extra "non typical."
    I woke up with a horses head in my bed yrs ago, now I know where the rest of it went:lol:
    Lake Sikome was closed for 2yrs a while back, it was full of bugs, from goose droppings.:x
