1. "RE: Mounts"

This is a buck I killed in 2002. I wanted some thing different and at the time this was the new form. It may be a little hard to tell, but the mount it quartered off the wall showing all of the near shoulder and the buck is looking back with a slight left turn. Almost like a buck quartered to you in the field. Also make sure the taxidermist does something cool with the ears, like one back. In my opinion, this detail seperates the good artists from the medicore. Anything to add some life like quality....

Good luck and lets us know what you decide. Have you already posted pics of your buck here..... sometimes different racks dictate the best mount to really make them shine..

If you choose a "turned" mount there is 1 golden rule: Put the BEST antler side closest towards the wall, the LESSER antler furthest from the wall.
