First mount of the fall...forum buck.

Recommended Posts

This guy was a late arrival to the shop this spring.  Apparently, he had been in the freezer for several years. I had to dig up a new cape for the mount...but everything came together beautifully and he is now ready to get the attention he deserves for years to come!

I believe that the head and cape had been in the freezer for 8-10 yrs so the skin/hide was basically freeze dried on the skull.

What an awesome buck!

And with your two very skilled, and talented hands, you brought him back to life!

Another, just stunning mount sir.
