    Have a mule deer to mount up and was wondering if anyone had a preference to which muledeer form or forms they like the best. I am looking at the Bill Lancaster forms from Trufitt and the Aaron Conelly forms from HQ. Has anyone tried any of these forms and if so could you please share what you thought of them? Have mounted some on McKenzie forms but wasn't real pleased with the faces as they seemed to narrow. The buck I have is a 71/2x21x23 so I'd like a descent full faced form. Any opinions would be greatly appreciated.

    I have been very pleased with Lancaster MD forms. Very good fit and look.

    Agreed. I like the look of Lancaster's muley. The mdss series from Mckenzie isn't too bad. I haven't tried a muley from Conelly, but he sure sculpts a smokin' elk ;)

    Just go with the Aaron Connely form, it blows the other ones away! I've mounted on all of them and the Connely form is far superior...... it just looks more like a mule deer than the other ones.

    I really like the Connelly forms as well. They fit good and look great!

    As much as I like Lancaster's, The Connally form mounts up better and has a great look.

    What size is the neck? If its 19 Aaron Connely form. I had a problem with his bigger form being the form had a pre-rut swell. The shape of the eyes were different in his bigger forms too. If its a Sept cape Id go with McKenzie than Id try Steve Tate forms than Lancaster MD forms.

    Thanks Cattrax. Masterdunbar I am talking about Trufitts. Is there a difference between the Lancaster forms from Research and Trufitt?
