I think the 'looking away' angle is pretty impressive...so I'm not going to worry about having the perfect 'spot'.

Thank you fellas, again I appreciate the very kind words.....

Here's a much more detailed "mount-a-long" I did a couple years ago on one of my deer...it's in the "Build Along" forum.....
 http://tradgang.com/noncgi/ultimatebb.php?ubb=get_topic;f=40;t=000093;p=1


A little backround....

No, I don't do it full time anymore. At one time in my life I was full time taxidermist and competed all over the country. I was blessed with some skill in the field and won the Joe Bruchac award for the best Whitetail shoulder mount in the nation 2 years in a row. An accomplishment I'm very, very proud of. I think I might still be the only guy to win two of those awards, but I'm not sure. Kinda fell out of touch with that sorts stuff. That was the end of my competition days though....

"Life" caught up to me and I took a "real job" with bennies back in '95. Then wife, house,and kids, and haven't had time to compete since. But wouldn't have it any other way......

Beautiful work bud! Truly one of the best mounts I have seen. Looks like he is getting ready to turn around and ghost on out of there...
