Any thoughts on the hole in the G4? Bullet?

Edit to Add: That's a fantastic Elk ANYWHERE, but ESPECIALLY Public Land DIY!


I can post a close up pic of the G4 hole if you are interested. For sure not a bullet. There is something inside the hole that rattles around a bit. Maybe he rubbed on a rock and it broke off when he was still in velvet or something. It adds some character so I wanted to show it off on the mount, but oh well. I'll see if I can find a picture, but I'll probably have to take a new one to show it well.

Awesome bull! Awesome mount!
Seems to me, though, that if your intent was to exentuate the hole anomaly, in the left G4, you had him mounted facing the wrong way..??
I believe I see the hole, in the "trophy" shot of you with the bull, in the field. But, I do not see anything resembling a hole in the right G4, which is what is facing outward, to the room. I'm a missing something..?
