Help me with whitetail form selection for a wall mount


Lunatic

Recommended Posts

So look at the picture of my mount. I am very unhappy with the pose selection. To me it is all about displaying the antlers and all I am looking at is this buck's white throat patch. I can't see any details on his antlers and in fact I really see very little of it. So I was thinking about a full sneak but then this maybe even worse.? Sure the head and the antlers will be lower but the chin will be up, pushing the antlers back and more out of sight.  What looks nice is Euro display with the nose completely down, see the other pic but I don't see a form like this and am not sure if the mount would  look stupid even if the form existed. So help me out here. You know what I am looking for. Do you have something up on the wall, not eye level, to give me what I am looking for?

Trying a BOSS wall pedestal on my latest buck... Do not have one of these...   My current wall pedestal is Mckenzie..

all of these semi-uprights out of McKenzie - some have slight look-down to them...

for even more "looking down options" and getting more aggressive, check out the specialty forms:

I have a full sneak and I dont like it at all. I can take a pic of it later if you want. I think tuck is right try moving it to eye level and i think youll have a different perspective.  

I like to see the picture
Thanks

Imo , semi sneak poses by far show off the deer the best .

as has been said , height of the deer on the wall also changes the view .

lower just shows the deer better than looking up at them .

 

Thanks

Yes he will be lowered eventually, I am redoing the entire wall. The mirror is my wife's thing but we will see...small steps
