I'm not one to critique much, but I just put together my first pronghorn (second mount ever) and by the reference photos I have, your eyes look sunken in on the head on pic. You need to tuck your bottom lip more and the little black line at the bottom of the nose should be tucked to where you can't see the line. The hair there should be touching. That's the stuff that I see right off hand. If you get a chance, go to my topic "First Pronghorn.....Please Critique (this is the good posting:) )" . Let me know if there's anything you see right off hand. Thanks, Paul

Kudos for getting it together without losing a big patch of hair somewhere...antelope can be very unforgiving...much more of a challenge than a first deer.

thanks joey,  I got him caped out and salted very fast so that probably helped, I'm pumped to try a deer now, this is the first gamehead I've done so not much to compare to

It looks good for your first.  I see a couple of things off.  1 the hair above the nose seems twisted to the right. 2 the whole face looks like it is pulled too far back. 3 the ears are way too back on the head. 4 the cheek patches (black part) should be on the side of the face not on the neck. 4 the sepetrum (little skin bettween nose and lip should be hair to hair not an open black line. They are sure tough little farts.

thanks for the tips,  I tried to put the ears in line with the eyes and nose like george says,  I built up the cheeks on the form with clay to make the cheek patches flare out more,   I had to alter the form and make the neck smaller so I'm not sure if the head part wasn't a little big. 

Here is my reference I used for the black patch, it looks like it is behing the jawbone like mine, don't want to poo poo your advice just showing the reference I used

If he is still wet pull every thing forward.  They are forgiving use a big fork and just slide it. also when you squeeze the nose together pin that small hole on the nose and super glue.  I wish I cold show you what I mean.

I think I get what your saying, I put a little hole in the nose during thinning and should have closed it up,  I'm going to see what I can do, thanks

Look at your reference and then compare your eye to that.  You should see that your eye shape is off.  The highest part of the top lid should be about 1/3 back ffrom the front of the eye.  It looks like yours is to far back.

This is what I was talking about the cheek patch.   From the bottom of ear to bottom of chin  Also notice the lines on the face how they come down on a stright line to the nose

agree you set your eyes too far in  plus they are the wrong shape they should be egg shaped. Whats with the pins I guess what ever works for ya good hide past  and thinning will hold up instead of all the little holes.e
