Hey Hawk, you can come down off you perch after you read this bit of info. The top picture (the only one that I saw earlier) looks like a bullet splintered the right antler near the eye guard. My premise was that the hunter ( who I have know idea who he is) was shooting at his headgear instead of his front shoulder. Upon further examination it appears that what I was looking at was a license or tag.
PS..FYI my wife is a minority and my best friend is too.

We'd all die to see a pic of hear more about the 215 buck man!!
The only time I"ve been near there I was down in Page taking a house boat out on the lake. I was with a bunch of family that didn't care about horns. All I wanted to do was dock the boat and head up Navajo mountain looking for bucks and sheds, but never got too!!!
That is awesome looking country and undoubtedly has tons of big bucks.
Great buck dude. Looks like you had a great hunt. I do know of four bucks taken were over 200" plus B&C. A couple friends and there bucks might be in Trophy Hunter Magazine soon. One buck you have seen, when it was checked in at the N.F.&W. office. It's the one you call the King. I taped him at 202"B&C non-typical, with a couple 4" & 5" kickers. Another buck I'm very, very familiar with, taped at 203"B&C, 198" typical frame. The other two, I heard taped at 208"B&C, and 215"B&C. The King, as Dondi calls him, and the biggest buck were taken by Navajo hunters. AWESOME, AWESOME, AWESOME. One last thing Dondi, don't tell these horn crazed nuts where you hunt. Shame on you. J/K dude. Smell you later.
hey dude what's up? think i would do that ! you know how it goes you say's you got it one place but where did you really get it ahahahahahahahhaahahahahahahahaha and, you got it bro i'll never do it man you know ( tell) j.h why don't you post all your bucks you taken over the years and give the outside a peek at what we got here on the res see you out in the bush later's
All big game permits are on a draw system. From 1-8 permits issued for Trophy Units. General unit permits issued range from 20-250 permits per unit. Depending on game denseties in that particular unit. Big Game permits issued are not in the high hundreds or even thousands, like most other places. Go figure!HUH!
For more information contact Navajo Fish & Wildlife Office, (928)871-6451.
Boone & Crockett states that "All trophies from the lower 48 states are listed in the records books by county and state. Bucks taken on the rez. must be file, either in New Mexico or Arizona. So, they will take them.
What a hog!!!!
ALL HUNTING ON THE NAVAJO REZ IS FAIR CHASE!!!!!!! Rick.
