    Stopped by the taxi on the way home, looked at eall pedestals and even a floor pedestal as well as full sneak.

    Ended up deciding on two mounts

    This buck I am going to mount in a full sneak with a bit of right turn. I always thought you needed a ide rack to look right, but he had one drying that was a basket and it looked great, will allow his brows and palmations to show.


    I am also going to have my 2013 buck mounted that I originally just did a euro. Everytime I see it I get pissed at myself for not having it mounted, but at the time work was iffy and had to budget hard.

    He isn't going to charge me for a cape, I already reserved one tonight. He said he has a few donors that no longer mount that they bring him the capes, as long as he doesn't have to pay for one he won't charge me for one.

    This one I am having done on a wall pedestal to be determined

    Decided to do the wall pedestal on the 8 because it doesn't have character to display, basic typical 8

    Nice buck nice hunt. But with all due respect. I think you could still arrow it with a compound bow and get the job done. anyways its still a big buck congrats.

    Appreciate the comments, but tearing my rotator cuff was not of my choosing and missing the season was not an option to please others.

    Good grief!! How do you know the fellow's situation?? I've used a crossbow myself rather than sitting at home.

    If you could pull back a 45lbs compound bow. id Strongly recommend hunting with it. There's disabled vets that are on wheelchairs that refuses crossbows and only hunts with compounds. If you just can't pull back a compound bow at the lowest lbs. I suppose crossbows is your only choice.

    Outch, it almost tickles. I wasn't Bashing. I was suggesting that if you can draw back a compound bow. id recommend hunting with it. I still respect crossbow hunters than what crossbowhunters look down at us bowhunters

    If you respected him using a cross bow you wouldn't have been a giant ******bag!
