Default South Tx buck..... pedestal mount finished

Its been along time since I last logged in, but its August and almost that time again. Plus I've got some photos that might get everybody in the hunting mood. I picked up my latest mount and it turned out unbelievable. I had Mesquite Creek Taxidermy in Pearsall do the mount, and I really cant imagine taxidermy getting any better than what they put out. I also picked up a blackbuck which looks as good as it possible can, I'll post those pictures up later....... Sorry for all the pictures but its a pain the butt taking a mount out for photos and the last 3 photos are for size reference. That's a mid 160"s skull that I'm getting mounted and that's my F250 diesel that the mount is sitting by.

I killed the buck in the Hebbronville area and the average score from everybody puts him at 217". He has 25 points with 2 more broken off, totaling about 6" of missing tines. As a main frame 9 point he grosses 176" and his 8 point frame goes 173"...... longest tine is almost 15" long and longest beam is 27 1/2". He had a live weight around 240 lbs and was probably 8 1/2 years old. They don't get much bigger than this unless you start getting into the "white horn" deer I hope everybody has a wonderful hunting season, its getting close

Thanks guys, he'll be the biggest buck I ever take. I got him mounted to sit on a sofa table behind the couch, so he wont be sitting on the ground like in the pictures even though he comes up to chest level.

I was wondering if you were even still on here...and then you post this. He a GIANT of a buck. And that is a pretty dang good looking mount. Rarely see good mounts on here. I like that the base doesn't "take away" from the deer. A lot of guys will get carried away on the base and make it too big or too cluttered. Nice.

Is that cactus real or fake? If fake what is it made out of? The entire mount looks perfect

That's what I was thinking. It's amazing how realistic everything looks. Even that Hebbronville red dirt on the top of the pedestal. Those deer in that area get some unreal body weights. Congrats on a true South Texas Trophy.
