The OP made a single post 2 weeks ago. He should have been able to make a decision by now. What was it?

If it is your biggest to date, if it brings a smile to your face, then go for it. Please don't get caught up with what your see on TV or other large management land bucks. If you can choose a pose that will help you relive the hunt! Let us know what you decide.

No one can answer this except you. IMO every animal I shoot is a "trophy" regardless of what it scores. Its the effort and experience that determines whether you should mount it or not. Lately I've been doing european mounts for my deer only because I have enough shoulder mounts. But before I started doing the euro mounts I would just buy one of those antler mounting kits and put the antlers on them.
Bet everyone I look at takes me back to the exact hunt, what the weather was like, who I was with, how he approached, the way he was standing when I shot....basically every detail of the hunt.

Guys, this is over 6 months old and the OP has not returned to make another post, etc. I'll leave it open but I doubt the OP is going to see any responses you post at this point.

Yeah - This is my thinking!
Sometimes its not the size or point count that's most important,
It can be the hunting story.
So is there anything special about the story behind taking that deer?

The fact he is asking leans me to say NO. I never had any doubt as to which animals I wanted to get mounted. That is a personal decision and if you're asking others you have already answered your own question.

I got a so-so Muley in Wyoming. I had it mounted. So far it's the only out-of-state hunt I've ever been able to afford so I'm glad I did.
