Very cool and I like the pose.

I gotta say though, it looks like the rack goes past the back of the mount. Is this going to be a pedestal? Otherwise, how will you hang it? Or are the pictures fooling me?

Either way, a very cool deer and a great looking mount. Congrats!

He was aged @ 5.5 possibly 6 by both the processor and the taxidermist. Appreciate the input though.

Will have to be a pedestal or wall mount. Good observation because it wasn't planned like that initially.

Awesome deer. But as stated before there are only two ways to age a deer Scientific internet guesses and have one on the front teeth from the lower jaw aged by a biologist.

Lol! I personally guessed him @ 4 or 5 when I saw him on the trail walking to me and the DNR official said 4 or 5. We used the lower jaw but not the front teeth ( guess that's where I screwed up lol).

Thanks! I'd have never considered it either but with a weak side it made sense.
