After shooting him October 5th this has been the longest 7 months of my life! I could not wait to see the end result, Iím very happy with how he turned out and sure glad to have him home.

Awesome buck! And beautiful mount! I’m not asking for exact coordinates, but where was this buck killed, generally speaking? Cuz I had one almost carbon copy to him that I didn’t see, or get pics of, all last year. Just curious. If you don’t want to say, no big deal, I 100% get it. Prob not him anyway, just looks a lot like he should have looked in the fall of 2020. Good Huntin, and God Bless, Rusty

He ended up scoring 170 on the dot. He was 170 6/8 and after the drying period he had lost 6/8 of a inch.

Thatís right man, my thought exactly. I didnít want to stick him 12 ft in the air and people not be able to see what he has to offer.

Perfect all the way around. That's one of the better mounts I've seen just from an aesthetics perspective in pictures. The leather is an awesome touch.

Man... to be honest I really thought I was going to pass out. I had hundreds of trail cam pics of him just in person he was on a whole different level. I remember my heart was beating so hard it felt like my neck was going to blow up! Luckily I had to watch him for about 5 minutes so by the time I took the shot I had a chance to calm myself down just a little!

If you don't do something about that sunlight, the mount will be ruined in 5 yrs or so. If you are unable to add a UV filter such as a sunscreen or "tint" then there is a spray from MountRx that is supposed to protect mounts against UV light but I'm not sure I'd trust that in a full on direct sunlight situation. Of course moving mount is also an option.
Just my .02.
