    Years ago, I mounted a few deer on a Research Mannikan form called "looking back". I have a request for another but this deer has a 24" neck and those forms are not big enough. Does anyone know of another supplier/form out there that would fit this deer. Thanks
     
  2. Look in VanDykes catalog, I saw that pose in there today, but didn't look at sizes available.

    I think you will probably ned to look for an offset hard turn (left or right) and alter it from there. Finding that position in that size may not be possible. I could be wrong, but I haven't seen one.

    Never seen one in that size, but you can always alter a pose that is close.

    Whitetail, mule or what kind of deer you talking about here? Another choice would be to use a grooming buck which would just need a tilt of the head and slight neck alteration instead of altering the entire neck.
