He topped my best. 18 & 3/4" outside. His Grand-dad took him on the hunt opening day evening. After the shot they could find no sign of a hit and failing light ended the search. I went looking the next day and searched based on the details that they provided. Yesterday I came across the remains of the body on the edge of a pasture close by. It was picked to the bone and sinew shredded, but no head in sight. An hour of combing the new area I found it's head in the woods partly covered in the fallen leaves. Amazing how fast the coyotes and weather had taken it's toll but I had walked that very path the weekend before the hunt putting up a ladder stand.

And as it turned out I got in on the memory by being the one to find evidence that he got it and searching until I found it's head. Boy I'm glad mother nature did a good job cleaning it already.
