Leonides DG won 1st place at the rising stars national competition 3yr hard antler class in 2014.

20 x20 points scoring 524 with bifurcated brows, 20 inch brow on right. 16 and 18 inch beys, bifurcated treys 22 inch trey on left with a 10 inch dropper. 19 and 6/8th trey on right with a 12 inch dropper giving a total inched for the trey’s of 63 inches. Multi T4’s, trifurcated on left with 36 inches total and quadfurcated on right with 35 inches. Total combined T4 inches of 71. Huge tine length out of the crown with 10, 11 and 15 inch points. Leonides crown points have multiple multi pointed points, a trait that we are wanting to improve on in our herd. Leonides was first place at this year’s Xcell Rising Stars Hard Antler Competition and Supreme Champion. During the roar Leonides is very dominant and will pretty much take on all comers, we have found this to be a very desirable trait as it is a sign of an alpha male.
