    What is the average weight of a whitetail mount ?
    I am thinking of converting a swivel type television bracket into a bench mounting stand. ( don't laugh ! ) its just an idea.

    my guess would be about 25-30 lbs.
    If you do use a tv stand lets see pics!!!
    Nothing wrong with thinking outside the box.

    Thanks bobbie, some of the TV swivel brackets hold up to 176lbs ! I was also thinking of smaller ones for fish. I will let you know how I get on.
