    So as you guys can probably imagine, I'm going to get my opening day buck mounted. This is my first truly big buck, so I really want this mount to look great.

    I know we have some guys that have a bunch of mounts and experience with this stuff, what is your favorite form for a larger bodied deer?

    I don't have experience, but I like full alert pedestal mounts with habitat.

    I think your buck would look awesome on a Mckenzie 6900.

    Agreed on the 6900 form. I used one for my buck last season, and it looks awesome!

    I'm a big fan of the semi-sneak with an offset shoulder. I think the offset really shows off the size of the animal well. The 6900 is a nice form.

    When I chose a mount, I wanted something that reminded me of the last view I had of him. I had mouth bleated at him and he whipped his head up to look over his shoulder.

    That's Why I chose a wall pedestal mount like this one:

    Here is the 6900. I like semi-sneak / sneak for big wide bucks.

    I also like the 6900 which I had my 2011 buck mounted on

    I have a 64U in my basement if you want to come look at it. That's the form I used when I killed Hitch.
