Default Is he mounted wrong?

My 2011 buck. I got him back about mid october. Had a hard time trying to figure out which way I wanted him to be turned. Last week a friend saw him and said I shoulda had the smaller drop in the back. He was looking to his left when I first saw him so thats the way I had him mounted. What do you guys think ?

Heck of a good buck. Congrats to you. I'd say he looks just fine like he is, which is the way you saw him.

Your friend needs to learn to keep his mouth shut...

The pose looks fine, but I'd pick a new taxidermist in the future. It's not bad, but there are taxidermists out there that could have made that thing look like it was alive.

I agree with all other assessments on the pose. It is your choice.

My eyes are drawn to the mouth/bottom jaw. The deer looks like it has a smirk.

I think the pose looks fine. Quailty could have been better, but that could have been the camera/lighting as well. Either way neat looking deer!

Hey, it's your deer and you mount it the way YOU want it. The pictures are fuzzy and don't do it justice, but he sure is a neat looking trophy! Congratulations on a unique buck!
