Normally they are smaller than most elk we get to do. Do not sweet them. Go after then like you would a deer. John c

like John said they era like a small elk(same genetics)the two areas different from a normal deer mount that you can find are the pedicals,they are a lot taller and i always glue and pin them to prevent them from dropping.also the mane its a good idea to move or ruffle some of the neck area foward a little so that the main ruffles out more.hope ive helped

John and Craig gave some really good pointers.The only thing I would have to add that while in Europe I learned that Stags always look a little bigger and nicer if you drop their chin a little.Unlike Elk ,they spend quite a bit of time walking around with their antlers elevated.Like Craig said the mane stands quite ruffeled.Other than that,your bases are covered.Good luck.
