This is a dead head buck we found a few years back that was a mt lion kill. My buddy decided to mount it. The taxi still has to stain the horns but its turning out nice. There was another smaller buck with this one partially buried. http://i1189.photobucket.com/albums/z437/ikeepitcold/5D0F2391-B87C-4E98-AF61-AF82A9119D60-1665-0000013465321A0D.jpghttp://i1189.photobucket.com/albums/z437/ikeepitcold/2C0FACD5-5064-4BF8-96DA-7B70B701228C-1665-000001345E5BB661.jpghttp://i1189.photobucket.com/albums/z437/ikeepitcold/D0E14978-5ABB-49D7-913E-8B621BDAB211-1665-000001345779A333.jpg

That's a great looking buck and I'm glad you decided to get it mounted. Nice way to honor it and remember it. I like how it shows the musculature and detail - looks like a real stud.

Too bad that buck didn't hook the mountain lion with one of his cheater points. Might have saved the buck's life and maybe we'd be looking at a mountain lion mount with a chunk of antler stuck in it's skull!!

Looks like a nice mount and with those antlers rejuvenated it will look very nice. Those mountain lions amaze me in being able to bring done big animals like that.

Good looking deer. Always hate finding a nice rack that way.

The taxidermist did a good job with the neck and the muscle groups on his shoulder. I like that look.

Good looking buck, definitely too bad how his life ended. I have come across a few kills as well, nothing that nice though. I too like how the taxi got the muscle groups looking, never seen that before.

Thanks. I was kinda thinking he over did it a bit this time on the shoulder but its not done yet. The clay isn't even close to dry yet. I'll post a few more when it's complete and on the wall.

What is the pose? A hard left sneak? Its neat. What a good looking set of bones! I really like the box choice for the ear bud holders!! :)

Yes with the pose. The hard left was made by cut just behind the neck. Also to turn it a bit more the right side at the base was also built up some too.
Ya funny thing about the boxes. My taxi doesn't drink. Must be a few of his buddy's supplying the goods. Haha

I'll ask the taxi. I didn't, I think he's in the low 170" with the trash.

Not a great scoring buck, but cool looking just the same! Your taxi did a great job, I may need to contact you to get his name and number if I kill something worthy for a mount.

No problem just pm me if you get one. He will only take new guys if you know someone he does work for now.

Hey IKIC forgot to ask you. Did you guys find that buck in your honey hole or in another spot?

Yep we sure did. Top of the canyon where I killed the buck in my avatar and a few others in that same couple canyons. Funny thing is we were 200 yards off the two track setting up camp when we stumbled onto them.
