Does anyone know of a vendor besides Buckeye that sells deer neck forms? I have a deer to mount that is missing the brisket (cut way to short). It is a small neck and i wanted to see if i could find something closer in size rather than shave the form down. Thanks.

has them just mounted one myself.
I stopped buying neck forms years ago when I discovered that though many hides are cut short, they're still longer than the neck forms available. I use a regular form (you only pay a few dollars more anyway) and then cut the form to fit the hide. Many times I've managed to get the appearance of a shoulder area where I'd have disposed of that hide on the neck form. Dave Whitney of New York made a great statement awhile back. A guy was auctioning off a particularly crappy looking form that had the audience groaning and Dave said, "Do you know how many good bird bodies and rocks are hiding iside this form?" Anything you have left will make good bird bodies or rocks.
after i posted the message i wondered about buying a shoulder mount and cutting it to fit. i will check out the other sites too and see what works best.
