I finally got my bow kill back from this year and hung up. I also finally decided to do something with last years rifle buck. I saw this on a taxi site and thought I would try to duplicate it. I think it looks pretty good.
Some great looking bucks you got there. How tall are the tines on that European? Have you scored him?
I havent yet, I just now got him cleaned up and finished. I plan to get him scored soon. I measured them last year, will measure again.

looks great, i believe i would have had that euro mount put on a deer mount, thats a nice rack as well
I wanted to see how this was going to turn out first. My taxi has an extra skin if I decide to get a full mount done. I didnt know the proper way to skin last year and messed it up, I made sure I learned this year. We will see. I love the full mount now that I have it.

Is that Euro mount spray paint??
no, its a paint that actaully has copper in the paint and it will naturally oxidise if left out in the elements. I put a black patina on it which speed up the process and gave it a black tint, kinda crazy to see it change colors like that. they sell blue and green patinas also or you can polish the cooper. They have other metal finishes also
