Seeking Advice on eye selection and supplier.

Hi,
I have one elk and one moose to mount. I cannot find a high quality eye for the moose. Any Suggestions? Perhaps an elk 34-35IQ?
I will be using Tohickon IQ for the elk but what size eye would you recommend for a mature 6 * 6 bull elk.
I would be very grateful for your guidance n this matter.
thanks John

John, the size of the elk antlers don't mean anything

Every supplier that sells forms also has a listing of suggested eye sizes right there in the catalog. Pick your form and follow the suggested eye size.

And I don't know about others, but I've suddenly begun questioning these "high quality" eyes. Bill Yox remarked several years back how dumb it was to spend $20 for a pair of "high quality" eyes when most of the "high quality" is covered with clay and a suitable pair doing the same job can be bought for half that price.


Great eyes
