Great mount. That one is really good and I also like that guy down on the left a lot as well. Anything other than just your normal run of the mill poses really get my attention. To me the realism we look for in the mounts shows even more the respect we have for the animals we pursue.
But hey I thought you weren't bringing him home till friday?
Thats a great looking mount. I still salavate everytime I see pictures of your trophy room(s). Those are some very fantastic deer and other critters you have there. I hope to have a room like that some day. Again Congrats on the deer(s).
As a Taxidermist I look at hundreds of Whitetail Bucks every year. I know that I have seen many different ways people judge the size of racks on live deer. I think for the most part they all are pretty close. I'm going to give you some measurements that I have noticed being right on in just about every deer. We have used it in the last couple years and have only been off by about 5-6 inches. We do study the deer while bowhunting so we get a little more time to look at them....
