On a side note he had broken his skull where the antler attaches and it now grew out of his forehead. Will make a cool looking euro mount

Congrats to your dad.Elk are tough animals,my son shot one with a rear hind hoof missing one year.My buddy killed one with four inches of his humerus missing. I have cut up dozens of Elk over the years and seen some injuries that were astounding,yet the Elk lived.
