    Very nice! Curious what form and is that real or fake sage?

    Thanks all! The form is an Aaron Conley shoulders and a McKenzie MDSS neck and head. I make some alterations to the head. The sage is preserved natural.

    That has to be the most awesome mule deer mount I have ever seen.

    AZ~Rich " Africa" never fails to satisfy

    X2 on being one of the best Mulie mounts I've seen in a while. Great job Jared!

    Wow, thanks guys! I know a lot of guys aren't crazy about the narrow muzzle on that head, but to me, it just has that "look". Nice to hear some agree! I would love to see Dennis widen the head/muzzle on the top end of the line, but the eye orbit area he nailed IMO. I'm going to play with some further alterations for the big boys this year, but for most of our mulies, and when they are killed, they work great.

    Awesome mulie mount!!!! I have to agree with you on the mckenzie mule deer! here in Alberta the forms work awesome for our early season deer but then late season deer I have to build the muzzle but the eye area is the best i've ever used! I wish they would make a bigger face in the same form. If you come up with some alterations I would love to see them and hear your ideas. great mount!
     
  15. Wow! That is Awesome
     
  16. How is the sage brush preserved? Is there any trouble with the leaves coming off?

    Great looking mulie Jared ! Did you harvest ?

    The sage was preserved using plant preservative from one of the supply companies, then sealed three times with matte Krylon clear. You will loose a few leaves from time to time, but generally holds up reasonably well.

    Customer's buck. Killed in Nevada. He handed me $800 cash, said here's a deposit, I want the coolest mount you can come up with. Let me know if you need more for the deposit...no budget, just make kick arse! Got a $200 tip when he picked it up, so I guess I accomplished my mission! Man I love customers like that!
