    Taxidermist had me stop in today to have me look and help to set the antlers from my buck that popped off. I think we got them pretty darn close.

    Looks nice but are the antlers sitting a little high on the form? Looks like they are a tad high on the form by the pictures.

    i think he still needs to cut down the form on top to fit the kit. I believe they say 2" - 2.5" above eye.

    Wake Looks like a good start cleaning him up. Should go easy and make a great mount.

    Out of curiosity, any of you guys ever use full metal jacket 4mm? I had been contemplating switching to fmj for years and just never got to it and a buddy mentioned those and curious to hear any reviews or thoughts on them. Not completely unsatisfied with what I’m using or anything but always curious if there’s a good improvement around and always wanted to try them

    They look solid. Had a three rivers test kit of the old ones I experimented with and had going nice bare shaft then but got busy and off track and just been using what I had. Checked out the 4mm and it’s a price jump up for sure. I’m gonna see how next few weeks go and maybe get a half dozen and do some testing. Can’t say it doesn’t get a little tougher to try different when hits around $50/arrow all set when have enough of what’s worked but maybe the thought of it and my impulse will override complacency
