Nice Buck. South Dakota has a lot fences (for cattle). You guys have some nice deer out there. We usually see a couple every year whenwe're out there phesant hunting. I am guessing you shot that buck in SD. The mount isn't horrible. I thought maybe there was something with the eyes or the way the antlers set on the form (high), but I looked back your field picture and the deer doesn't look that much different. It could just be the pictures of the mount (angles or whatever). Anyway its a nice buck that deserves to be on the wall. Enjoy!!!

Congrats on the buck. Another fast turn around time with poor results unfortunatly. WCL
BINGO!!!

As long as your happy with him, that is what matters. If we point out flaws in your trophy, then you will grow to hate it.

I paid 400 for it.. I know that is probably at the upper end of the spectrum, but it was convenient to take it to the lady I did so thats why I did. I didn't do any research before so once again, that is nobody's fault but my own.

I would really like for you guys to tell me what you think is wrong with it, mainly because I don't see it.. Do the ears not look right? I know that you don't see wrinkles in the skin from the muscle, but you don't see that in deer in South Dakota in November, so I don't think that would be a problem.. Let me know what you think, I won't be offended, so let er rip.

Thanks for the congrats from you guys.. I was really happy to take such a beautiful deer, and hope that I am just starting a yearly tradition.

That's not the upper end where I'm from. I'm paying close to 6 in PA. My freinds, family or myself have gotten a mount done by this guy every year for the past 10 and they're all great. Every year they get better, too!!!

Here's a couple from him. Check out the bottom jaw of the big 5-pointer. It was an 8 year old deer. Nice detail on the sagging jawls.
