Nothing wrong with that ol' boy!
Great set of horns ShadeTree!
Nice looking buck. Great job on the European style mount. Every time you see it you will remember the experience. Are you going to put it on a plaque? Dan
Look at the taxidermist wood shop, he has a bunch of plaques at good prices. Various woods and synthetics to pick from.Yeah it was a litte different kind of hunt.........sneaking with the wind in my face and seen him on his feet without him seeing me, about 100 yds out. He was in way too thick of stuff for a shot and after several minutes he finally moved 8 steps or so and gave me an opening. Don't know for sure yet on the plaque, or how I'm gonna display it, but probably on a plaque.
ST, you might be thinking of the 10pt I got last fall. He was a nice buck, but that takes nothing away from the one you got. From looking at the pics, it looks like yours is nice and wide, which is more like the one I got in 2019.Bd, I might be mixed up on who got what last yr, but wasn't it you that killed 1 that makes this one look like a juvenile? If it was you go ahead and put him up on this post.......I like seeing big deer.
Thanks. He was good enough I was tickled.........course the size is just icing on the cake, it was a cool hunt which adds to it. I busted him by playing the wind sneak hunting, and taking his nose away from him.

That’s a nice size rack. I’ve had several European mounts done by a place near me. For $10 they put it on a plaque with the year engraved. My avatar is last year’s done by them.
He makes one that doubles as a plaque or pedestal, just have to turn one piece a different direction to switch from wall to table display.Forgot to acknowledge your post. It wouldn't load the site initially, but checked it again here and it loaded up. Pretty cool stuff on there!
Some of it if I paid myself just $5 an hr I don't know if I could still get it done for that money. Until I dig my tools out, do some measuring and figuring, start over 3 times because I messed something up or something doesn't suit me, then finish it with a couple coats of something. I don't know what I'm doing with it yet, but if I go with a plaque or pedestal, I can't hardly make it for what some of their prices are.
