    Hard to tell for sure, but in the third photo it looks like there's a gap by the left antler burr. Check the bottom edge of the nose, the fourth photo shows it to be higher on the deer's left side...then where the nose ends and the hair starts it drops down fast...maybe a lip tucking issue. Also check the front of the chin area, judging by the hair pattern the center is off to the left by about 1/4 inch or so. The deer's right upper eyelid has a bit more of a squared off shape to it than the left one when looking at the first photo. The first photo also shows something with the right brow area, but adjusting the upper lid shape may correct that. The hair on the shoulders in the sixth photo seems like it should be groomed down a bit more as opposed to back.

    Overall nice mount

    thanks for the input.. after staring at this thing all day it helps to have someone else look at it. It was one of those frustrating, feel like giving up days..

    my standards are way above my skill level. im rarely happy with a mount :-X
