Congrats it's good to see you back in the woods

I didn't get to keep much meat off him, In the picture you can see the brown spot on his chest, turned out he had been punctured and it was badly infected. When we skinned him the meat above and under the shoulder was green & yellow and stunk. The outfitter didn't want me to take any of the meat but I persuaded him to at least let me keep the backstraps and inner loins. He gave me other meat he had already processed and frozen,, some Axis sausage, Buffalo steaks and venison burger

Nice 'spike,' bummer on the infection. Oryx is excellent eating. Difference between excellent and shoe leather is 1 degree and less than 2 seconds since it is so lean.

Man looks like an awesome trip but it sucks that you went all that way to kill a huge whitetail spike. I guess TX whitetail look a little different. Cool that he's piebald though.

Good job on your hunt!
