Default First head of the year out the door

Well got my second year in buisiness off to a great start with a deer and a bear in the first week of the deer season here in WI (mid sept.) but since then its been dead to say the least. Was expecting some western and canadian animals to come in from people I know but non of the trips resulted in any trophys except the small bull I killed in CO that I will be mounting. Finished the first deer up on thursday. I did get another buck in finally on sunday so maybe thigns will start pickin up with the rut coming on now and gun season not far away. Feels good to get that first one of the year done exspecially when the cape was giving me some troubles during mounting. I did have a brain fart though and forgot to clean the eye lashes before I took pics, haha, and it was way to sunny the day I took pics, then it was raining the next day so no pics after cleaning. Any critiques are welcome. I know I had some issues with the hair on the right side of neck and tried working them out best I could, this was the first one I had troubles with on that. also that little black spot under his white patch is a small cowlick. Thanks. Kyle

Beautiful deer/mount!! Only thing I would suggest is maybe showing some whites of the eye.

The white shows on both backs of the eyes. You just can't see it in the pics. About an 1/8 to 3/16 of an inch on both sides the pic angles just don't show it. Not sure if I have a pic thats shows it or not I'll have to look.

This one you can kind of see the line of it but still not a side profile pic. The deer didn't have a very big head, only had a 6 3/4" nose so the eyes aren't that big to show a ton of white either.

Very nice, Wish I had brought the one from last year to you,Don't have it back yet. I shot a nice 6x6 elk but it was too far back for a couple old guys to carry the cape
