That is not very good taxidermy work at all. The ear butts are wrong, eyeshape is wrong. The inside of the nostril should be pinkish - looks dark to me. You should look for another taxidermist.

I knew from the title this was going to be bad, I have to agree with bucknut55, lip looks like it could be tucked more, eye shape,earbutts, doesnt look like the nostrils or ears are painted. I'd find a different taxi.

Nice buck, congrats. Bottom line is if you are happy with it, that is all that matters.

I will say that I personally don't feel like it is great work at all - BUT - the avg person has no idea how to tell if a mount is quality work or not. They think everything looks good unless its obviously horrid. Heck, some taxidermists don't know quality work. Once you learn what it looks like, its very easy to spot work that isn't.
