This was sent to Me;
2011 South Dakota bull elk taken during the current rifle season.

The additional pictures show evidence of this bull previously being in a fight with another bull elk. The other elk broke his antler off in this elk's head.

The taxidermist is guessing that the broken antler had been imbedded at least one, if not two, years. The "extra" antler was found to be piercing the skull just behind the left eye of this elk but the surface had healed to the point of not being noticeable.
