    I need to find a source for these in order to finish a really unique mount. Does anyone know of a resource for them? Thanks

    I have never seen flexible deer eyes. The ones from Ohio Taxidermy Supply are not flexible

    One of the heads I took in has a 4" antler growing out of the top of its left eye socket. I have to cut down the eye and bring the skull cap down in order for the hide to fit correctly. Glass eyes just won't work. Thanks for the feedback.

    in that case the Ohio eyes may work

    Thanks Brian. I have an Ohio order guide. I'll give them a call to discuss.
     
  8. just wondering, Why not just cut out the form more and set the eye down in the socket. was the entire eyeball there and just pushed down by the antler?

    Matt....thought about that and may still do it, The thing is, being a beginner, I question absolutely everything because of the importance of this first group of heads. I don't know if I'm making the right decisions or not, so i like having options.
    I appreciate the suggestion though...Thanks

    Odd situations like that one, the skull should have been kept to study at the time of mounting. Once in a while, an odd one will come along, and I take several photos to have on hand. Like an odd antler set such as this.
