Nice Deer ! I have never seen an antler mount made like that, but I think it is worth considering. It is different, and yet it displays the horns well. Tell your taxidermist "nice job". Good to see that folks other than me are out there looking to develop alternatives to traditional mounts.

My favorite tattletales of the outdoors are a handful of little birds that live in my state of Ohio. Maybe yours too. A tip for the upcoming season.
There are Blue Jays, Cardinals, Chickadees, Killdeer, and Sparrows that all have language...
