what form/pose would you choose?
I would be using the McKenzie 8900 wall pedestal.
OTS and alter it into a wall ped.
i like the bigger coombs forms.........but.......i would alter the form so it would have some of my own personal traits. I would add perhaps 1 1/2 inches onto the backboard.....give it a roman nose (slightly)......give it jowls. ...change the shape of the nose pad a weee bit....basically turn it into a Saskatchewan deer.....lol
I like a lot of forms out there but there are anatomical shapes that lack in some ...........just my two cents though. The bottom line is every deer we encounter to mount has its own fingerprint and any form will need alteration to accept that deer if we want a winning mount. This coming from a guy that has not mounted a deer for a few years now. Developed a real HE ...(double hockey sticks) allergic reaction to deer.
Ohio Taxidermy Supply, they are my new favorite form
Second 2 Nature, southern series, semi sneak
OTS with alpha nose without a doubt
I was lucky enough to harvest a nice buck this year and this question has been haunting me since the day I shot it.
I would have to go with an OTS!! I've only used their forms a couple times and fell in love!!
I love the Matt Thompson SS series
Just punted a customer deer on the 8900. Really liked it. Will be doing one of my own on it.
Matt Thompson on 16-18" necks (I really like his mature look on small deer)
OTS on 19-22" (you won't find a more symmetrical form)
Ben Mears SUO on 23" and up (massive form with long lines and a very natural look)
I'd be going OTS ss or the new 8500 ss Lancaster used a lot of them this last year and really liked the look, even if they weren't cheap
OTS for me.
Lancaster, mule deer form cause we don't grow those funny looking whitetails around our neck of the woods. LoL
Gene Smith for me !!
Bruce, I just mounted two 8900's last week, client wanted something different. I really like the look.
