Neck Wound

I shot I nice buck last night that I am going to get mounted.
He came in around 6:30 and was almost underneath me when I shot him. I usually stand to shoot but in this case I had to shoot him sitting. With the steep angle I had prolems hitting my kisser button and it threw my shot of. He was slightly quartering to me and I ended up hitting him in the neck just above the shoulder with a rage 2 broadhead. Pretty big entry hole.
I was just wondering how bad this wound will affect my mount?
Any thoughts would be appreciated.

Re: Neck Wound

Do not worry about the mount.Either the taxidermist can sew it shut or he can get you another cape to mount the deer with.I cut mine too short one time to get a shoulder mount so the taxidermist got me another cape and I was happy with it...

Re: Neck Wound

It should be hardly noticeable. A two blade broadhead makes an easy fix. I like to pin those instead of sewing them.

Re: Neck Wound

Probably won't be hard to fix. Just some sewing. The fix will depend on how well the broad head cut the hide. I would think a Rage did more cutting, but a lot of broad heads do a combination of cutting and ripping of the hide, which makes it very difficult to hide the incision.

Re: Neck Wound

I'd have to see it in person- or a pic, to determine the damage and how much work to fix it. At least it is on the back of the neck, so with the shorter fur this time of the season, even if the sewing isn't enough to fully hide some cut hairs, it is not in a spot that you will veiw fully or at all when it is on the wall.

I don't agree with gitzit- sew it, sew it good, sew it tight. It's not that hard to do. I use fireline fishing line, great stuff even if expensive. LOL being female I guess I sew naturally LOL.

Re: Neck Wound

should be no problem at all ,the entry hole will or should be cut out past the cut hairs and then sewed up.I just sewed up an exit hole in a coyote from a 270 ,can't even tell it happened.hole was about the size of a cantalope

Re: Neck Wound

Whatever works for you foxtrapperwomen, I sew a lot of them with fireline to. Sometimes I can do a better job pinning though.

Re: Neck Wound

Joe, so long as the skin is pretty much all there with the fur attached, even in in tatters, it can be sewn. I was unable to totally repair a roadkill escaped ranch fox someone once bought me, but I sure did ALOT of sewing otherwise. How I even skinned it was a miracle, it was the most messed up roadkill. Yes, I charged extra!

Gitzit, whatever works for you too. I usually only pin little holes that opened up due to my knot not being good LOL. Yes I knot them properly now. I also pin the brisket area once I line everything up.

Re: Neck Wound

If you can still see it after its mounted, no big deal, then you will always remember where you hit it

Re: Neck Wound

I shot this 8pt(on the wall) on his left front just in front of the shoulder. You can see the 3 blade mark where the hair was missing. I like it because it reminds me of that day every time i see it.
