  1. This deer had a deformed ear that was fused in place so to speak. Customer said he never saw the ear move before he took him during bow season here in FL. He wanted the deer as is, which was cool. Just mounted him this evening and have some adjustments still but turned out neat. Very cool coloration on this deers face to.

    coloration is different on that deer i like it... good looking mount. i had a deer come in once with a floppy ear kinda like that and it was all messed up at the ear butt. i think it was an old injury however.

    You did a great job with that ear Dennis! Love the coloration in the brows and muzzle on that one.

    Saw a doe last year with the same kind of ear. Had her on the game camera many times and the ear was always the same. Just a broken ear that fused I suppose.

    Dennis, I love your work.
     
  7. Awesome work on that ear and the mount. That deer is all around unique from the antlers that look like they are 60 years old (coloration) to the dark line in the brow and I have never seen antlers tips that look like they were sawed off....
     
  8. Great job on the ear! Looks just like the real thing!

    Good job
     
  10. Great job as always Denis. That is one of the coolest looking deer I have ever seen for color. One of these days I am coming to Florida droping the kids off at Dworld and am coming to your shop to learn how to do eyes like yours. Down the road-

    We have an OLD doe that has both ears just like that. Named her floppy ears. She has managed to avoid us for 4 years now. Only camera pics. Great job on the mount.

    Love the coloring on that. I have a 1.5 year old spike on my property like that. That deer never turned down a fight!
