    I have done what I call stag deer before , but never like this .. It was in velvet but the real velvet was in bad shape .. So got my son Ben jones replicaracks.com put his artificial velvet on it... Going to get the cape on in couple days

    Gorgeous! Deer like that get called cactus bucks, I think. Must be hell trying to walk around with that on your head all year round, though.

    Nice replicated velvet. Only way to go IMO. Real thing would look like crapola on the wall.
