LAST EDITED ON Dec-07-11 AT 08:46AM (MST)[p]The velvet buck looks the best (even though I think velvet bucks are ugly) as far as the taxidermy goes. The other two look great, and though you can't really tell in the pics taken at the angle, in the front on pics it looks like the taxi got the form a little too narrow on the bridge of the nose between the eyes and it makes the bucks look a little sallow and makes the eyes bug out a little. They look like they are sucking on something sour. I am being way too picky, I know. Overall though, great looking mounts.


HOOK 'EM!

They all look better than any of my mounts and I thought I had a pretty good taxidermist. I'd say very good without real closeups of the mounts.

They all look fantastic... minor differences in deer mounts, capes, forms, and all that really make each mount unique I think... there is no such thing as "the perfect mount" No two deer look just alike... And minor "imperfections" in mounts make them unique on the wall...

I was thinking the same thing as Roy. Minor but noticable.

I think you pretty much nailed it. The velvet buck liks the most life-like and the work in that buck is really excellent.

The other like you said the face/nose looks a little skinny or out of scale maybe. Not a bad job but also not as realistic as the other. Maybe its just the camera angle but?? Nice bucks though for sure.

I second what Roy said, but I think the velvet buck looks great! I'm not a real big fan of velvet/summer coat mounts either, but I think this one is top notch.

They look good, and I am not so sure about what everyone is saying about the noses and the eyes. I think they only look like that because of the color of them. The white, in my opinion, makes the noses look narrow. I think they look real good.

thanks MMers for all the honest opinions, i was just really trying to get some feed back becuase i feel the taxidermy dosent get the credit he deserves and especially for the money 425 a pop. (if i remember right) i personaly love the mounts and so does everyone that sees them in person. i can maybe takes some close ups letter when i have more time. thanks again. and dose anyone have some paul pennie out of alpine work they wouldnt mind posting?

I was going to say about the same thing. I am not any kind of taxi expert though.

By choosing the wall pedestal forms the mounts are instantly better thatn average. By far my favorite form choice. It gives depth and realism. I like how the skin shows better muscle tone around the shoulder area with the pedestal forms. I'd be happy with the work. I'll echo what was said earlier about the velvet buck. I'm not a fan of velvet and especially the summer red cape, but the taxi work is good. I love mule deer and think its cool that you have the three cape stages represented. My favortie is the short hair after the red is gone and before the winter gray has filled in. $425 is a bargain for the quality of work you got.

As for Paul Pennies work I wouldn't go comparing to his. My neighbor has 13 mounts done by paul. His work is second to none. The detail around the face really sets his work apart.

Great bucks.
