Here is a current order in the works. Just have to make some ears and fill out the body a little more. Massive Whitetail from a ranch in Lampasas.

Filled it in a little more last night. Finished 1 ear and have 1 more to go. After that fill and stain all holes.

Taking shape nicely I think!

Love it! I think I like it better without the ears. Not that my opinion matters, but maybe try putting one more antler on the back side of the ear to fill it in some.

I just do what the customer ask!

Open ears, closed ears, ears back, ears forward. I appreciate the opinion. The saying is happy wife happy life well happy customer happy business!

Be glad to make you one with closed ears or no ears!
