Shoulder form.
Any suppliers carry these?
I found one, but it was too big.....I need about 4 1/2 eye to nose.
I started digging in the catalogs, but hopefully someone has a
suggestion to save me some time.

I did one 2 years ago where I just used a doe form from McKenzie, I know some guys will say they are different anatomy but it worked fine and looked good, for the buttons I pre made them with all-game, this one didnt have them poking through the skin yet.

I mounted 2 Button bucks last year on the forms from McKenzie.. It had the buttons already sculpted into tthe form. I just added some clay around them to get the desired thickness. On one of them I had to shorten the muzzle by 3/4", It came togeather with no problems.

I did a couple of button bucks and used a regular buck form - with the correct measurements of course.  I just cut the skull plate off as I would do with a buck and fastened them to the form.  They turned out alright.  I didn't know about the button buck forms that some manufacturers sell at the time.  There seems to be many different BB forms now to choose from.  Good luck!
