Interested in a Doe Head Mount

I been thinking about maybe bowhunting the 2nd season and using my antlerless tag for the 1st time in along time.

I'm curious if anyone has any pics or ideas they could show me for a head mount? Something unique and a conversation piece for my man-cave.

I'm also wondering are they cheaper to mount since they're less work, (no antlers to mess with)?

Also, if I do decide to use my tag I want it to be a true prize. Any suggestions on what to look for other than like an albino of course.

Thanks,...--------------->>>>>>>>

Big mature doe and you can do some wall habitat with it or if you have a buck mounted it could be done with it maybe sniffing the buck or licking it.

Re: Interested in a Doe Head Mount

a barber shop on Capouse avenue in Scranton had a doe mounted on a plaque shaped like a large broadhead. I've also seen PA shaped wooden plaques for deer mounts. I've also seen a buck and doe on a double plaque (wish I had a picture) turning towards each other. Good luck. Keystonepaul

Re: Interested in a Doe Head Mount

I have the same idea as you about getting a doe mounted if I get one in the late season. For me it would have to be a big doe. The last big doe I shot a few years ago in rifle I had the hide tanned and that is laying over a table now.

I know some people that have doe mounted and they are nice but not unique. I found this diagram of some mounting positions:
I like the looks of the Full Sneak and I have seen buck and doe done that way and I always liked the looks of that position. I also saw a picture of a buck done with the what the diagram is calling 3D Mount and I thought that was really different but I don't know how it would look with a doe. I guess any mount can look good depending how and where you position it on the wall. Probably speak with a taxidermist about your options but if you want something different than I would expect you are going to pay more.

Re: Interested in a Doe Head Mount

when chosing a doe for a mount, i look for(as the woman would say) a real pretty deer, you see some deer in the woods that look nice but then you see the one that looks beautiful. I chased one around during archery season that was absolutely beautiful but never got a shot, i prefer a archery cape over a winter cape. I`m still looking for one to mount with my buck, but it won`t be just an average looking doe. As joe said you can choose different poses and themes to go with it to make it stand out. I was suprised the last few years that so many guys wanted doe done so they can accent their buck but it is realing catching on, usually they just worry about the bruiser on the wall.

Re: Interested in a Doe Head Mount

I'm familar with all the standard McKenzy forms. Just looking for an unusual idea to accent some other mounts.

Re: Interested in a Doe Head Mount

I charge the same for a doe as I do a buck. No antlers but the amount of work is still very close to the same and the supplies are no cheaper. Here's a few doe mounts I've done.

Re: Interested in a Doe Head Mount

Nina,
Have you ever had a customer ask for a mount identical to one you had mounted? LOL, I love that backbrushed doe! I would purposefully go after one for a mount like that!

IF YOU SEND ME A PM, I WON'T GET IT USUALLY UNLESS I SEND ONE FIRST. REPLY & TELL ME TO PM YOU

Re: Interested in a Doe Head Mount

Never have I had a request for a doe mount from a customer yet. These were all just-for-fun from the does my family and I have taken over the years.

Re: Interested in a Doe Head Mount

I've done a few does- 1 was a crop damage one from about sept 1, so it had the short hair- plus it was a big pretty doe. I think I did one due to it being a kid's first ever deer, plus I recall a couple piebald does the people just wanted shoulder mounts of. Doe mounts aren't that popular, but I think if more hunters saw Nina's work above, they may change their minds!
