    I've seen overbite before but this is pretty extreme. Will the hide relax enough to make normal mount?

  2. I've mounted them when they've up to around 3/4 of an inch with no problem, but that looks to be a pretty extreme overbite.

    Yes, you will be able to mount it up just fine.

    This is a genetic defect. I did one identical a few years ago as is. In my opinion it should be mounted that way unless the customer objects. Just need to make an upper palate.

    Well, I would not want to stare at a DORK DEER for 20 years.:D It will mount up just fine, BUT like LK suggests, ask the customer.

    I freaked on the first one I saw, but after talking to some fellow taxidermist I ordered a 1/4" short nose on the form I used and really stretched the lower jaw after tanned and it mounted up fine, most custormers never even notice it before it is mounted. I've always heard it called parrot mouth.
