    I don't remember any other bucks from around here having a dark patch like that. It could just be coincidence that the antlers are dark in the middle too. Heck, the taxidermist might have added a little color there, you know, for a more dramatic effect :-)

    This is my buck from 2015 and this is what they mostly look like here. They get gray in the face and some dark color but not the dark spot across the entire forehead.

    Nice looking mount Rich!! Awesome deer. For the record I don't think pines are doing that to your deer. Where I'm hunting the bucks rub white pines almost exclusively with a touch of maple thrown in, and they don't have that dark patch. As a matter of fact almost none of the deer here look like your buck. I could prove it with a ton of pics but I don't have the energy. I'm thinking it's more genetics than anything else, but what do I know?

    Rich, awesome buck! We have allot of cedars here that the bucks love to rub on and most of my bucks have that same exact dark patch on their head and lower part of their antlers. I never gave it much thought, assumed all bucks have that dark cap. Who new

    Thank you my friend! No pics in velvet. In fact, no pics at all the year that I got him. He came out of nowhere. I did find some pics from 2015 that look suspiciously like him but those were later in the year also.

    Maples, cedars and pines come straight to mind. You may have some local trees that I don't know about. I've heard honey locusts can be sappy but we don't have them here that I know of. You are I think you're in the right area for them, though, I think. For some reason, I pay attention to factoids about them. I think they're a pretty cool tree, LOL. I think birch trees can be sappy (again, not local). Bucks around here like to rub on a tree I call hornbeam, but I'm not really sure it's hornbeam. It doesn't have a really sticky resin like pine, but it is on the juicy side. By local lore, a dark-horned buck around here is thought to be a "swamp buck"--- But other than mud, I don't have a strong feeling about what those bucks are rubbing on their horns that makes them extra sticky and stained, compared to a buck who lives "on the hill" and is rubbing on pine sap all day. I mean, like, who really nos all this stuff anyway? \_(ツ)_/ :-):grin:

    That's a great buck Rich, it'll be tuff to do better than that, he's beautiful, did you have any pics of him in velvet, if so was his forehead brown in the pics? I've never heard of that happening but I can see how it might have. Again, beautiful buck!!!

    It just occurred to me that the night I got him, I mentioned a large evergreen tree was rubbed up. This tree is around 6" wide and it was rubbed higher than average off of the ground. I bet that was one of his regular trees. There only a handful of those around but maybe he preferred them for some reason. What other kinds of trees are sappy?

    Awesome deer, awesome mount. Your guy done good! (And you did, too, lol.) I think you're right about the dark hair/stain. Resin will pick up everything. I also notice that Northern deer and/or older deer seem to have something going on on the top of the head that I don't see all the time. Kind of a little toupee, LOL. We have our share of chocolate racks but that there's something different. Do you think he was/ could have been rubbing on a lot of sappy trees?

    Holy crap. That's a nice mount of an impressive buck. It looks like he's pulling bouncer duty for the kitchen.

    .....and no, that's not where the mount will be hung. My Dad picked him up and hung it right by the front door so it would be the first thing I saw when I walked in.:-) It occurred to me that the brown patch of hair might just be stained. Notice how the middle of the antlers are stained dark chocolate. I wonder if whatever he was rubbing on stained his hair too. What do you think?

    I will try it out the next time I darken the door of a bow shop. I tried one version of the Halon, I think. Or maybe it was a Helium. I don't know, LOL. It was a few years ago. I liked it, whatever it was.

    i ordered the halon 32 and waited for a month or so,i figured id ask if he had the triax..i couldnt be more happier, that he had one. reminds of the time i had to choose between chunkymonkey icecream or cherry garcia ice cream, they both are good but cherry garcia stands out.

    the element is a nice bow.. smooth and all that..but the triax is somthing else.. bit on the heavy side but who cares..i bought the triax 60lb limbs i think it max out at 62 where im shooting it at now. and the 400 spine shoot like darts ..i still need to figure out my 3 pin black gold slider..i figure i'll get it set at 20 30 and 40 and then worry about the sticker it comes with.. im super impressed with this bow..

    I missed this thread the first time. I ran the numbers through the Ontarget software assuming 60# 28" draw 27" gold tip hunter xt (I picked those randomly) with a 100gn tip. It shows you a little weak with the 400 and a little stiff with the 340. I don't think the 400 is in the dangerous range so if that's what you've got, use them. If you have trouble tuning, you might try some 340s. Disclaimer: It's my first time using a new version of the software so a mistake isn't totally out of the question. :grin:
