Longest browed sire we have ever bred!

2 year comments: Phthonus DG has possibly the longest brows we have ever bred or seen at 17 inches @ 2yrs. The style of Phthonus's head is exactly where the trophy market is going in terms of style, points, length and width (32 inch main beam and 26 inch span). Phthonus DG is a full brother, same embryo flush to Zzivar, who was sold as Lot 1 in our 2017 2yr sale who scored 474 @ 2yrs. Phthonus's pedigree illustrates how strong genetic traits of width and length can be passed through generations to get those top scoring stags. 3 year comments: Phthonus DG at 3yrs scored 601 with 19 and 20 inch brows, 16.4 and 20 inch beys, 26 and 21 inch treys with 36 inch main beam. Awesome looking head! Phthonus full brother Zzivar scored 686 at 3yrs and won the 'Rising Stars' 3yr Hard Antler competition.
