Just had this freak dropped off for a L/S mount
Awesome deer and a pretty lady! Congratulations to her on the deer of a lifetime!
Talk about a skinning nightmare
That’s a dream buck no doubt.
Wow! What a deer!
Skinning nightmare and will be a difficult sew job at the Y.
Cool looking buck.
Absolutely a pain when mounting. We CAMO a lot of skulls. Those points distort the pattern and make it difficult. I have cut them off, CAMO'ed the skull, then glued them back on! I would not do that on a trophy deer being mounted.
Hope she did a lifesize mount
Yes it’s going to be L/S mount
Wow, What a buck!
Glen, did it have an overbite? Know doubt lots of in breeding in that deer's area
Nope not at all , 7 1/8 E/N , no Roman nose , but does have the stubby leg syndrome. It had nuts but they were small and very hard . It was in velvet all the way up till a week before it was killed .
I am in NC and have seen plenty even a albino this year. There has got to be a reason why there are so many piebald this year.
I KNOW.... WE WILL BLAME IT ON COVID!!!!
If I never kill one, I wish to at least mount one.
Glen, almost all of the many pie bald's I have done over the years have had a very noticeable over bite, and is a fact that inter breeding contributes to this color variation.
Thanks for the info crablover
No problem S&T! The unique features found in pie ball deer are common in most specimens that display certain traits. As Glen stated, short or stubby legs are one of them. Most display an obvious overbite and to some degree a Roman nose as well. The exterior sex organs tend to differ as well as Glen stated. Biologically, the difference from a pie ball and typical White Tail comes from interbreeding within a certain area. Those traits are often carried by a herd that occupies an area within their range. I have had the opportunity to work on quite a few in 45 years doing taxidermy on the Eastern Shore of Maryland. Other than altering and duplicating to match the unique differences from a typical WT, the mounting is no different between the two.
45 years ... Great! I do not have 45 years in taxidermy. But maybe one day.
Not to change subject or crash a thread . Just wondering. Does a deer with a over bite mean it inbreed?
Don’t wish your life away, it will be here in the blink of a eye
I started in 73 and dang it’s now 2021
Where has time gone
No not necessarily, I’ve mounted some huge normal bucks with bad overbites
