pick one for size and overhaul it.
They have 13 pages of blacktail forms! You'll not find a bigger or better selection of blacktail forms anywhere.
...but if you're still looking, I would suggest the West Coast Taxidermy line. They work well for BC black-tails. If you are mounting a rutting buck, just sculpt in some added neck to give it some "shoulders". I like them because they have that Roman nose so typical of mature bucks out here...I just wish they had more sizes in the forms they have...it would reduce the amount of extra work to do....good luck. I have tried using Research's small Mule Deer forms (Bill Lancaster wall pedestals) for bigger hybrid black-tails and they are a nice fit too, just need a bit more Roman in the nose and a bit more "shoulders" in the neck.
