Less than 8 months from Erick's Taxidermy. Great turn around time. OLD men have hairy ears, same with old bucks. [Linked Image]

Looks great! A lot of character in that rack.

Thanks for the comments. This was a personal best for me. I didn't know how important it was to the taxidermist that the cape be measured properly to order the right sized form. He told me the whole process. I wish now that I had a shoulder mount of the one I shot in 2021, definitely same genetic characteristics with an even bigger head and neck. Both big bodied, heavy deer. It would have been really cool having these two brothers on the wall.

2021 was older and in decline but still had the crab claws and width. We're looking at better range conditions than last year which was good. Pretty excited about what may step out during the next rut.
