The two pictures next to each other made me laugh...in the top one he looks very sad, in the bottom looks like he's smiling.

The mount appears to be of good quality. The one pinned/one flat ear is a different look, but I personally would have swapped the ear positions. His right side protrudes out further than the left, so tucking the right ear makes it lopsided in my opinion. Still a beautiful buck anyway you mount him. Congrats to her!

the way the antlers come into the fur doesn't look right to me? But a nice buck for sure! Congrats to her!

From the pic in the field it sure looks like the form used was not the correct size. Has a huge neck in the dead pic.

Thanks Pitchfork.


Taxidermist is one of the best in the state....always top in masters. I let him set everything the way he wants.....after all, he is the expert. As far as off set ears.....it's a natural look.....see cam of same deer. Almost every pic I had of him, he was that way. i couldn't be happier w the caliber of work.

I thought he looked sleepy in the first pic, but sad works too. Sad, it's a great buck, but the taxidermist didn't do it justice.
