Finally Home and On The Wall

Recommended Posts

I shot this buck in 2003 during the IL archery season. The mount was ready and finished in Feb of 2004 but he stuck aroung the taxi studio on display till two weeks ago.

I really didn't have the right place to hang my best buck ever, 167" P&Y typical. That is until I decided to hang him up at my girl's house. He now has a new home and I can see more of him!!

Hope you guys enjoy seeing him as much as I do.

What a good-looking mount - the taxi did a nice job. Congratulations on getting an outstanding deer.

I also his sheds from March of 2003. I killed him on Nov 6, 2003. My buddy found them laying next to each other in a winter wheat field.

They look awesome, congrats!


There are as many answers to that one as there are reasons men hunt, fight, skydive, gamble or take up with redheaded ladies.

Thanks for the kind words guys. I'm very proud of him as you can imagine.

I had the taxi mount him using the same form as the Jordan buck. I figured that would show him off the best and make him look truly majestic.

Thanks again for the kind words.

Lawdwaz... Yes my girl loves me or he wouldn't be hanging in her house. lol

I've lived in NY most of my life but I've hunted out there 6 out of the last 9 years on private property. My buddy who lives out there found the sheds on the farm we hunt.
