  1. The material cost is more due to purchasing the packframe and having to get the entire hide dry tanned. The time invested was less on this mount than a standard one.
  2. Perfect. l need about 45 of them!
  3. It's about to get ALOT worse!!! Lol
  4. You've never seen one of those "truck bed" mounts? LOL!!!
  5. This concept isn't really unique...the backpack style mount has gotten popular over the past couple of years. It's not really my favorite type personally, but it's not my choice either.
  6. You can use a replacement hide but at this point of the season you'll have a tough time finding a replacement cape with the entire hide attached.
  7. Now that season is finally over, it's TAXIDERMY time once again. My first attempt at a backpack...all finished up minus a few personal touches from the hunter. ****For all you internet ECOs, the tag is green because the deer was taken in 2018.
  8. Thanks (just saw this post). It's almost time to start the process all over again. It's been a crazy season...I took well over my quota during archery and the first week of gun season. Hadn't gotten many calls in the past three weeks but they are starting to trickle back in again. Have a late season muzzleloader monster coming in tonight!
  9. My buck managed to break his G3 off sometime between the afternoon of the 16th and when I killed him on the 24th My taxidermist is currently working on rebuilding the tine based on traillcam pics...
  10. He wasn't close to being the highest scoring deer that I had on trailcam this year but this brute of a buck was very near the top of the most wanted list. The 3 year history with "the big one horner" came to an end tuesday afternoon.
  11. He never grew the antler in 2018 or 19. Last year...
  12. Update: he tipped the scales at 246 live weight and 195 dressed. Not a speck of fat on him so I'm certain he lost a good 25lbs over the past month. He also managed to break off his G3 since Saturday night! His right brow was 8.5".

  14. Heck yeah! Gives me some needed motivation to get out in the stand tonight!
  15. This guy wasn't built for scoring but after 3 yrs of him on camera I'd gladly cull him from the gene pool. He's possibly the biggest bodied buck that I've ever seen on the hoof!
  16. Headed out now. Just finished caping out a stud for a former forum member...
