i am finishing up a mount of a small 8pt  on a research manikins browser buck looking up at a steep angle.
i have a few ideas for what to hang over him for him to be looking at.

my idea is a branch with a bobber and some fishing line tangled in the branch.
i ran it by my wife and she thinks its a stupid idea so i must be on the right track.

i am sure this has been done with leaves, persimmons,licking Branch's
any other ideas?

maybe put an arrow through a branch like it just got shot at and its checking it out. or ruff up the arrow like its been hanging there for a couple of years. just my 2 cents worth.
