I just got a Red Deer back from the tannery and it's a pretty big cape, 33"+ at the ears. The forms I've found for Red's are all quite a bit smaller than this. How different is the anatomy from an elk? Didn't know if an elk would be similar, or if I was going to have to alter a Red form.

Cole...a lot of the red deer that we have gotten from preserves are actually elk/red deer crosses. They get big. We have mounted them on elk forms with no problem. I think they look more like elk anyway except for color.

There is a company in Denmark I believe that sells forms, Have to pay in Euro but they are up to 38 in the neck. Smallest I have seen them is 32.

It was a preserve deer so it may very well be a cross. Thanks for the help.
