Best mount for double white throat patch?

Hi all, My taxidermist received my cape back and now it is time for me to pick a pose for my mount. I don't have many bucks mounted with the cape, mainly due to the cost, but this one I chose to do as it is or is close to my best buck and it has a double white throat patch which is unique.

What would be a great pose to show off this unique throat without looking like it is trying to hard. For example, I know a sneak wouldn't be the best, but I am unaware of the multitude of options out there. The situation of when I shot him is stone still pausing in some brush head straight up sensing his next move. Would like to try to get something similar to that scenario but that is not a requirement.

Thanks for your input.

Go to your taxidermist shop and look at his forms in a catalog and close your eyes and visualize your mount on the forms. Look at a semi up right?

I agree with the semi-upright. Then you can go with a slight turn, left or right, depending on where in the room you want to hang it.

Fully upright and straight on pose kinda look fake. But a semi-upright with a slight turn will give you the full view of the throat patch without looking fake.

Here's a semi-upright with slight right turn.

Do a McKenzie 64U series or with their head up full sneak series up a little higher on the wall will show it. Can even throw a lip curl in with it and add some character.

I got a full sneak mount and I didn't like the way it looked when hung above eye level. I ended up hanging it at eye-level and it looks much better.
