    replacement cape on my first bow kill 17 yrs ago

    Here is a buck I put on a meder offset heads up series. I chickened out on the flehmen mouthpeice, as it would have dont this mount even more justice. Anyway finished him yesterday with the mule deer. My dad took it to a taxidermist when I was 15. a few days after I got him, I purchased a cape on here to give him his own place on the wall. I really enjoyed doing the meder form, fit like a glove for the cape I got. His antlers aren't set wrong. the deer had antlers that came straight out of his head and the tines pointed back. At age 15 I can still remember running to the house screaming I had just arrowed a monster.. he had points going all over. (ground shrinkage) LMAO now, anyway he dresses over 200lbs, MN deer taken oct 5 1989.

    Second is a pic of the previous deer and a few florida deer I mounted up. My cousin in MN and I did the moose in the picture

    A NW MO bowkill from 2006. I thought it had a nice cape and a nice, heavy set of antlers. Sorry for the poor picture quality.

    I'm about to mount this little doe cape. My dad shot it in archery season in WV. It was a liver shot, so he let her run and left her alone, came back and trailed and found her the next day. It didn't help that he put salt over the raw unfleshed cape and put it in a cooler for two days for his trip home (Should have sent some Stop Rot with him) Hairs are still falling out on the shoulders but the Krowtann for the most part saved this cape and set most of the hair. I'm glad I was able to save it, it is really pretty, short haired with a double white patch. More pictures to come later, here is one of it after I neutralized. I'm proud of this tanning job lol, it's probably one of my best, and very clean. (Face fleshing still needs done)

    thanks guys. Can anyone make a comment on my ear butts? I'm still waiting for a reference cast I'm going to order, which will help me a lot, but for now I have to use my reference photos...and that's just not enough so I can't wait to get 3d reference. Is there anything I should fix on this deer before it dries?

    mitchman, yeah I wanted to put the ears back further in reference to that pic, but they just didn't look right on that mount to me. So they aren't as back that far right now.

    mitchman, for the porcupine, you should do a carcass cast. I would explain it to you but there's too much info to go over, so you should look in the molding and casting forum for some info. my fox is coming along pretty good, i just need to mold the body. the legs are done.
