Recently a friend of mine and myself each took our first caribou. I haven't thought much of thier horn configuration till now except for the whole double shovle is an older animal. My friends bou had tall skinny horns, not a lot of points (8X8), and was a double shovel. Mine was shorter but twice as thick with more points (13X14), the points were also very long, and they made more of a circle, yet only had one shovel. Both animals were almost identical in size.
So I guess my question is do caribou start regressing their horn growth or did I just shoot a younger mature bull. Pulling the teeth isn't an option since I shot mime in the head.
