Thie is my first competition mount. I'm not really sure how to enter him in the show, so I am looking to ya'll for that advice. I have been doing taxidermy for 4 years now.. this is my third season as a part time taxidermist and I took in 40 this year. Overall I have mounted about 50 deer ...and everyone of them gets better! I don't have any formal training, just videos, and reference items. When I shot this deer I said I'd like to enter him in a show and just see what I can improve. The cape is not perferct, he has some battle scars...I don't know how that will effect my score? I am going to the TTAI ingo June and I dont know if I should enter him as "Educational, Amature, or professional" Joe Meder is the WT judge, so I'd like to get the best critique possible....let me know what you think!
