Grooming Whitetail....

Discussion in 'Deer and Gameheads' started by Willow Grove Taxidermy, Oct 16, 2013.

  1. I'm going to be mounting a grooming whitetail, but I've never mounted one like this. I can't seem to be able find much reference for this pose regarding the mouth and eye positioning. Does any one here have any advice or even some good reference photos they would be willing to share?

  3. Wow, what a big help, thanks a bunch Jenna! Flickr.com is great, I don't know why I didn't think of looking in places like that, and I've never heard of smugmug.com but it's really great too! :)

    Love that first one Jenna!
     
  5. Start collecting whitetail reference, books, calendars and magazines. I staple the better ones to the floor joists in my basement workshop. When I need to check out some reference all I do is glance at the pics already there.....John

  7. I do have a mountain of various types of reference, but stapling it to the ceiling is an idea I had never thought of and I might just try this. Thank you John!

    Thank you srholmes30, this is also a very helpful angle.
