    Bucknasty, This mount has been done thousands of times. I agree it portrays taxidermist and hunters in a negative manner.

    While it may not be my cup of tea it is your mount. So if you like it fine, it is still a free country. I think.

    I don't care for it, but it's your mount.
  4. I agree with Hoosiertaxman it is looking at. Kinda like it just found a new birthmark or something.

    Why don't you mount the whole deer and stick it through the gut...

    I'd much rather gut shoot one than hit it there....

    That's a piss poor depiction of both animal and technique..

    Good idea, and maybe while we're exploring new ideas, you could change your user name to a$$hole or arrogant prick. Thanks for the constructive criticism. What a dick!

    I still get a laugh out of bowhunters who use an arrow to kill a deer BUT find it "offensive" to see one in a mount ??? Stupid.

    I know what you mean -- I got a similar response when I mounted a bobcat stepping into a steel trap. People said it was offensive or too controversial, when, in fact, the bobcat really had been caught and killed in a trap! I don't think there's anything wrong with portraying how the animal was taken, as long as you do it tastefully.

    TN Bucknasty, I think once you add more habitat around your deer it'll look better, though it doesn't look too bad right now. I do agree that he looks too calm though, but, you did say it was an experiental mount! I think it is always good to experiment and try things that are new to you, especially if it's a personal mount.

    Micheal, I don't find it offensive so much as I just don't like the way it is portrayed to all of those that don't hunt. And personally I don't enjoy the part of hunting where the animal is dying. I killed a lot of animals with a rifle before I started bowhunting and with a rifle you shoot the animal either drops or runs off and then you walk up to your trophy.

    The first animal I shot with my bow was a bear out of a treestand at a distance of 5 yards the arrow double lunged him and he didn't even understand what had happened as he turned and looked at the hole in his side. Then he fell over and for about a minute I sat there listening to his lugs rattling as they were filling with blood and watched him kick a few times before he gave a final growl and was dead. It is a lot more intimate being there as they die and the dying process for me is my least favorite part of the hunt.

    There are a lot of people out there that are against hunting and even more that are on the fence about it and I just don't want to be the one to push somebody off the wrong side of the fence. Plus, I don't know about in your part of the country but in my area bowhunters get a bad rap and portraying animal that looks healthy with an arrow in its side kinda bolsters what some of the rifle hunters around here say about us wounding and not recovering.

    To each his own on how they feel about it but that is just a little insight into why I feel the way I do.

    Thanks. I appreciate that. I agree with you. I think maybe the arrow brings a little too much reality to the situation for most people. It was just something I wanted to try.
