    i didn't even believe deer existed that were this big, but after filling my tag on a 7.5"x22"x26.5"x31", i am in search of a mannikin to fit this beast. the catalogs from McKenzie, vandykes, and WASCO didn't have much so i was wondering if any of u out there have run across any mannikins near this size. pose doesn't really matter at this point. for those wondering, the deer only scored 140 but the shed from the previous year showed it had put on an 8" tine off the base of the g2.

    thanks

    Revolutions Intemidator form will work just fine, you will most likely have to alter the nose to eye as all the inteminater series I believe have an eye to nose of 8"

    Measurements of a revolution Intimidator Series form 8"X26.5"X22.5"X31.5" there is one larger then this one as well. They make them in a simi-sneak off set and a simi-upright off set

    Mears has an offset sweep, and an upright that with minor alteration should work for you.

    Actually , you have a 22 inch neck. The common measurement that capes are identified with is taken right tight to the ears.

    I was wondering if anyone was gonna point that out.
    Your 22" cape will fit just about any form on the market.
    It takes an 8x25x28 to fit the Intimidator form. If you
    have to take that much off the form it will not look right

    I was just gonna let him figure that out on his own he asked where he could find a big form and I pointed him in the direction he wanted. When someone thinks they have a deer with a giant neck and you tell them different it usually makes a lot of people upset. The best way to fix that is let them order the manikin that they think is the right size and when it don't fit maybe they will learn something or just invest in a cape snake and make it fit lol.

    check out the photos...i watched this buck fight and break his left side off...found the tines
     
  15. Nice buck. Why not put him back together, especially since you have the pieces? He will look even better restored to what he once was.

    I actually feel that the form you put it on is a bit too big for the skin.

    ED783 LT or ED784 RT from WASCO have the big deer look and will fit your measurements perfectly. The earbutts fit with Eppley earbutts. The deer on the cover of WASCO catalog is one size bigger but the same look.
