My 2020 Bull back from Taxi Lady. All cleaned up you can really see the busted up part. Amazing that he could break that and have it all healed up.

fighting with another Bad AZZ bull looked like he was a loser and winner he got to keep his life until running into a Damn good hunter. LOL

I'm guessing he broke it fighting or hung up his antler on a tree while running. Did it look fresh or to me based on the skull looks like the bone had already healed? I'm guessing it was at least a couple months old and possibly a couple years old.

Yeah he had it mostly healed. It was from a while back for sure... Crazy to see it disform the eye socket etc. When I shot him he looked super wide... LOL Definitely broke it fighting or hitting something really hard.

One of my bulls had a similar fracture. Unreal how tough they are.

I never got a pic of this ones skull plate without the hide. Needless to say I can’t imagine how this one was messed up as it actually has 3 pedicles on one side that each grew a separate antler that would shed. He was another archery bull I stumbled into...
