    George The older I get, the better I was.

    That pose is terrible fir answering that question. The deer is dead, lying on its side and the head is being lifted and twisted 90°. Add that unnatural pose to a winter hide on a big deer, the actual neck size won't be nearly as big as you think. Still, that's a 300 pound animal probably with a 22-24 inch neck.

    Yea, he's a bit "tucked-in" but that sucker is still huge! Look at the base of the neck/chest, you cant stack that area up...thats a big neck no matter how you cut it.

    The head is laying in the shoulders. If he pulled up on the antlers and stretched the neck out, it wouldn't "look" as big. I get customers showing me pics of their deer like that and want the neck "big and rutted", usually ends up a 20inch neck. As said, still a huge deer and would be a trophy for anyone.

    I agree Paul, but you still cant hide a big neck. Maybe lake it look bigger, but you can never hide one. I purposely tried to do just that with this deer, it made him look bigger than he was but he was still very big. I sold this cape at 25" tight at the ears and 54" at the base of the neck. Big is big!
