I have mounted two deer with the aggressive look. I stood some of the hair up. I have seen some aggressive mounts with the ears laid way back and the hair slicked down. Every time I see deer do that, the hair is stood up. I am pleased with my first two. I just back brushed it while it was still wet. They turned out pretty good. I read in the old-school breakthrough manual to wash it after mounting it and then blow dry it to fluff it. I was just wondering if anyone has tried this or if anyone has any suggestions on how to best achieve the aggressive pose?
