    I am mounting my second deer this year. It had a huge, 26 1/2 inch neck and I want to show it off. The deer was at a full sneak when I shot it and wondered about getting that pose. But which pose best emphasizes the neck?

    Anything but a full sneak and upright... The above mentioned will work well

    Thanks for all the input. I hadn't thought of pedestal. But I was thinking maybe semi sneak. I'll check into it.

    I did one last year that had a 25" neck on a 6900 series from McKenzie and also one that had a 26" neck on a Revolution semi sneak Intimidator. Both looked very good and showed of the big swelled necks

    Badgerland Quality taxidermy & quality deer capes.

    Revolution is bar far the best/easiest mounting & will certainly work for what you want.

    Lots of ideas!

    Thanks. As I've been searching catalogs, I've found myself having to first find one that has a form to fit a 26 inch neck. I am intrigued with the wall pedestal semi-sneak idea, but am having a hard time finding the neck to fit. Any suggestions on where to go to find a wall pedestal with the 26 inch neck? I really like the intimidator as well. You guys have given me a bunch of ideas to look into! Thanks!
