A friend showed me this as an alternate to a shoulder mount. Looks interesting to me. I'm not sure of the cost however.

Good idea. Not a fan personally, though. Despite fitting right into the category he described (want to mount my deer but not big enough to justify shoulder mount) I just cant help but think it looks cheesy... Then again, I'm a big fan of euros, in general.

Very cheesy. I would rather euro mount one if not shoulder mount worthy.

Doesn’t look great, but it is unique. Personally I think if you had a bunch of wild cull bucks this would be a great way to mount them.

Euro mount cost less, and looks way better IMO. To each his own though.

Nope.....give me a euro all day long before that if not doing a shoulder mount.. I'm a big fan of good looking capes as well so the 3D target look, to me, is cartoonish.

Hanging one up outside on your patio or shop might not look too bad. Personally I’m like most, I’d rather have a euro done.

I have some deer that my dad killed years ago that the mount is in bad shape. I can't make euro's out of them and don't want to spend the money to replace the hide. I may give this a shot on one and see how it looks in person.

Some might find the name of this company a bit sexist! I wonder if they might make a "She Shed" version for some of the more feminine bowhunters?
