Default ďArtsyĒ whitetail finally hanging

I shot this deer 4 years ago. One of the most memorable South Texas bow hunts Iíve ever been on.

Iím proud of how he turned out.

I have definitely never seen one quite like that. Seeing more and more ďartsyĒ mounts. I think itís pretty cool to see what people come up with instead of just a straightforward mount.

After seeing it on the wall I like it. I was just thinking the other day how all shoulder mounts are the same. This is a great artsy change of pace.

Thats the first whitetail that I've seen like that, I've seen a zebra and a gemsbok. That would look so good in a gun room or mountain cabin. Very nice work

I've been thinking of having something like that done but with quail and habitat work popping out of a picture frame like that.
