Found it in a stream while flyfishing. The brown stain is from the tannins in the water around here. I am guessing its either a really large deer or smallish moose. There are also cattle nearby so it possibly could be a cow.

either a cow or one of Kvrdave's dead horses

That is one HUGE eye socket.

Yep, it's cow skull.

It seems to be a cow skull

I bet I could find a scientist to claim it was 1,450,000 years old and came from a RARE breed of cow, which used to roam these lands, feeding on grass blades that were as tall as trees! You could be rich my friend!

I'd say it's a deer. Look at the remains of the antlers. (stubs)

Deer don't have that big of eye sockets. Well, not in my neighborhood anyway.

Thats what I thought too, but for a deer its pretty huge. You can't tell from the photos, but there is a molar that hasn't grown in on one side. I'll try to get a picture of it later. I will also try to get one with a tape measure for scale.

I grew up on a farm, and it looks like most cow skulls that I've seen before.
