What caused the scratches on rack?
« on: November 08, 2018, 06:51:14 AM »
Never seen these kind of scratches on a rack before and thought I'd ask the experts.  It's only on one side.  Was he sparring and another bull had a kicker point or something?
Noticed when I was finishing up the Euro mount.

Maybe he tried to fight a barbed wire fence

I shot a 6x6 this year that had similar nicks and scratches I assume that they are from either fighting or junk that they rake. One is a perfectly straight line.

Hadn't thought about barbed wire but it was only that 10-12" stretch of the one side.  Oh, well, it's character!


Thanks Derek.

Maybe sparring with another elk with a broken tine that's sharp
