Get your freak on

Postby olympushunt » 03 12, 2018 •  [Post 1]

Ok....so Cohunter this is your fault. Your post got me to thinking about all the freaks I have pics of over the years. Maybe this should be a photo contest of the month...lol. Ok guys, let see um!

I will start with this dude that slept on his back during antler growth.

Crazy thing. This looks like the same place Oly found his weird bull.

Dig em up if you can Lefty. I wanna see!

I wonder what that bull's spread score from my first pic would be. LOL!

I have some more I will post later that got me to wondering what was in the water in this particular drainage. Some had me scratching my head.

This guy is a bit out of the ordinary (Idaho Bull). It's obvious that Oregon has the majority of the odd looking creatures; must be something in the water :D. I have some more I think; will try to dig them up.

It is the west side rain which lasts for 8 months per year that causes us to act up a little. Don't blame me. It is the rain that has done it.

BTW, are the legs on Oly's bull a little off too? Maybe he is normal and just practicing for the ballet.

These guys are right up there with the goofiest bulls I have ever seen. If I didn't know better I would say there might be an old nuclear plant around there somewhere!

I was sitting at the wallow the evening before the season opened when the bull in Oly's last picture showed up. He made himself very hard to find after that.

Spent a ton of time trying to pattern this bull. I only saw him on public twice. Actually found his sheds through my spotter laying on private :cry:

Great idea for a thread! And great pics, guys... I'm afraid I don't have any other pictures to post, though... I really haven't seen that many freaks in the woods. A couple big club bulls but never a picture of one.
