I thought I'd share a picture of my Colorado buck taken last October. I just finished mounting it this weekend.

That is a beautiful buck. Do you do taxidermy professionally or just as a hobby?

I only mount for myself and occasionally family. From 1969 - 2005 I ran a part-time commercial taxidermy operation from my home.

Beautiful! Gotta ask though, what form and did you use earliners? I can never seem to get mule deer ears to look good, Im going to try some liners from research mannikans this year.

Trufitt Md-6365-WP slightly modified to enlarge left shoulder area. And, yes I used ear liners. In fact I used Research's new fabric ear liners and liked them very much.

Nice Buck! Do notice a difference in the thickness and length of fur between the second season and the fourth season?

MT-Mike, beautiful mount. Anyone would be proud of that one. Do you have his BC score? I'm sure others besides me are wondering if our guess is close.

Thanks. I looked at a buck yesterday that was shot near here. Hunter thought it would go 180. He will be disappointed. More like 160. I thought yours might go 180. I think yours is the best looking mount I have ever seen.
