I just got back from Colorado and have a elk I killed to mount. Being from Indiana I have done very few of these critters. I have used mostly McKenzie forms but was wanting to know what forms the rest of you recomend? And also were can I get some good reference for elk and mule deer? thanks for any help you can pass along.

I have been starting to use some of his stuff...I am really pleased with how they look and they have been fitting very nicely. I would give them a look!
coombs are very nice, i always use them if possible!
if your elk is medium or small in size then the McKenzie forms are great; esp the facail details. If it is a large bull (over 340) the regular semi sneak forms of thiers always need to be altered so the antlers will clear the wall, which is a pain in the rear. Thier antler clearance forms have a strange appearence to me; I do not like them. On big bulls I like the Jonas signature series elk, they fit great and have big shoulders and look great when finished; clients always like the mount. I mount "alot" of elk, over 50 a year since 1976.
Bill over at Tru-fitt has some good large elk forms. I done
my last one on one of his. I really like it. He hs a new web site
He can ship you a catalog.
All the best
