NICE BUCK!!!  
 
You know, I see pictures like this, and I realize how fortunate we are as hunters to live in a great deer state.
 
I grew up in New Jersey in the 50's and 60's, and although we had a lot of deer, you NEVER, EVER saw a deer that was even HALF the size of this one.  My uncle was in a deer club that has some of the best private ground in North Jersey, and the guy who would win their "big buck" trophy often did it with a forkhorn. A small 6 pointer was considered a "BIG BUCK"!

How many mounts do you do a year,how many hours do you put into each mount??? the pics are of nice deer but can't really tell the quality of the taxidermy...

can't see the details of the deer, from cheek bones, tupee, bottom lip, or the muscle in the neck and face or the coloration in the nose...

i have three mounts and one one is quality work and when my buddies who have killed more pope and youngs than i have seen see.. commented on it was the best mount they have ever seen....

It was done by a friend who took many hours to finish, he dremmels the face and neck to paper thin which gives it the muscle details and uses 11 colors in the nose to make it realistic, he also makes you take pictures of the face before you skin it so that he can match the antlers and facial features.

his name is BOB Julio...he only takes referals from friends, he studied under some world reknown guy in pa i think..can't remember name though...

Your mount looks nice . I do 100-120 deer a year. I put alot of effort into each mount to give the customers a good quailty mount.

Double barrel: Are you mounting deer heads only? That seems like alot of heads, I bet you have your hands full. Do you do your own hide tanning too?                                                                                     Dtrain: I personally don't like the veins, or ears sticking out so far, but the mount looks pretty good anyway. I guess it's hard to please everyone.                                                                          Here is a couple mounts my father has done for $300 a head, he is just starting out with his business. The digital pictures don't really do the mounts justice.
