How high or low on the wall

I was lucky enough to get a really nice buck that really has it all height, width ,mass,etc. I have it on the wall in an office in my house that is not real big. I have the bottom of the cape at about eye level and am wondering what is the optimum height to showcase all this guy has. I probably should have chose a pedestal but went with the traditional wall mount.

The type of pose sometimes allows for a higher or lower display. I have high walls at my camp and had mule deer and whitetail bucks mounted in a “sneak” pose....head and neck looking down. I hung the mount slightly higher on the wall as the deer appear to be looking down into the room. If the bucks were mounted with their heads high and alert, at the same height, one would be looking up at their throats rather than at their face.

I think I am too high. All angles of the deer are great and it even had a drop tine . The rack can easily be seen but it is tall.
