First off, I'm not a taxidermist, myself, but have lurked and read a lot of helpful information in these forums many times over the years and figured you guys would be able to help. My taxidermist is getting ready to start on a whitetail buck of mine ( a high-160's rack) and I have chosen the Ben Mears form #FB-224, the fighting buck, and I need some input from some experts. I am toying with the idea of the eyes being slightly rolled so that some of the white shows, ears laid back and maybe even have an open mouth. In my mind this should give a very aggressive appearance of the buck being in an all-out fight. With his size (he has 12" G2's and 10-11" G3's) it just sounds like a really cool pose. I have searched all over the Internet and can find almost zero pictures of whitetail eyes being done this way but have a difficult time believing that it's not been done many times. Have any of you done a mount like this and could you provide pictures if you have? Any respectful and constructive criticism would be appreciated, and if this truly sounds like a bad idea please let me know..
