FIRST of all i dont see 105 " mentioned anywhere by me, i SAID the deer is bigger than MY deer, and MY deer im guessing is 115 - 120 "

THIS deer is a VERY nice deer, but 167? i daubt, im gonna say a 150 class buck but 160 i daubt.

like i said this is a very nice buck tho, id be tickled to death to kill him, Im wondering why the horns where cut off tho instead of mounting him?


i def want to see a better picture from straight on of this deer tho

the antlers where cut off cause at first thought, i couldnt afford to get the head mounted...so i said i guess it had to be a rack mount. then my mom said she would float me the money if i paid her back once i got the job. however while my uncles where drunk as can be they went out there with a saw cause aparently there drunkness didnt get the fact that i want to keep the head. taxidermist said that they believed she could put a head from a diferent deer on and put those antlers on it and no one know the difference

u can def, use a different deer cape to mount your deer with but it needs to be a deer that was the same size as yours

i was just about to say that. if you know someone who shot a deer they arent mounting im sure they would be willing to give you the cape... just take both to the taxidermist they will take care of the rest

oh and bloodsaw.. im sorry about the miscommunication

there is SLIGHT, VERY SLIGHT, shrinkage, usually the shrinkage is in the spread and the spread ony, because the skull plate shrinks slightly, thus bringing the antlers closer together, on the other buck i have on the wall he was about 15 3/4 inch wide before mounting and not hes about 15 1/2, so u can see how slight it is, usually on a 120 " buck after he dries he might drop down to 119 " or so ( IF THAT )...not a big deal at all

BUT shrinkiage tends to differ from deer to deer, i could send u a pic of a deer that i scored after shrinkage and let u score it also

shrinkage at the MOST, will be 1% on a given deer, most time less. Nice buck,, but under 150", def.
