    Just curious how often other taxidermist get ask to do a full sneak whitetail, I've only done one in 10 years.

    Not too, often maybe 1 every other year. This year so far no whitetails in that pose but I did get a mule deer in for that pose this year.

    I get 2 or 3 per year. I like mounting them. They are easier to get on the form.

    I get several every year, probably 8 to 10. Remember, if it's on your wall. Customers want it. I try to keep a 6500 semi-sneak and a full-sneak Ben Mears form from McKenzie. I also mount several on the 9600 full-upright. I also do a Second to Nature head down, aggressive pose, with the ears laid back. A lot more work, eye sockets aren't anatomically correct The skull base is sometimes crooked, and or set slanted, or both. I did one of these several years back, and can't get away from it. It's like a cancer, not going away on its own. It's always on the wall, and customers want it. The Ben Mears full-sneak, I love doing. It makes for a very nice mount and comfortable to mount. An eye pleasing mount

    This is a second to nature manikin! Yes the eye set was off, along with lots of other issues with this manikin! I try to stray away from second to nature manikins unless I have no other choice, depends on what the customer wants! I only mount on these manikins about once every couple years! I hate to even look at these things!
