    With one small dillema, one of the measurements is from front of tear duct to nose. Mine measured 8 1/4" the biggest form is 7 3/4" :eek: He said he can make something work though and I trust him ;)

    You need to tell your taxi to look at Joe Coombs' forms... seriously.

    I won't have mine mounted on anything else. My taxi has taken several 2nd places at the World's taxidermy show in the Master's division... that's as good as it gets. He won't mount a deer on anything other than a Coombs form. He's won EVERY state show in the whole Midwest in the Master's division... MO, KS, IL, IA... you're talking the best of the best when it comes to mounting whitetails, and they pretty much all use Coombs.

    I know Joe makes forms big enough, because my 167 is on one of his. ;)

    I turned Matt on to them when he first came to hunt with me, and he's had his last two mounted on them and now HIS taxi won't mount on anything else, either. Trust me. :)

    Dan, Greg's exactly right. I've heard Matt also say that.
