Advice on deer pose......

I am struggling picking a pose for my archery buck this year. He is very heavy and has a broken tine on both sides. His left side with the longer main beam has a broken G3 and the right has a broken G4. His right ear is also ripped through which I am getting on the finished mount.

I currently have a buck mounted in a semi sneak right turn so I am going to probably have this one turned left. I am considering a full sneak offset, wall pedestal, or a semi sneak head up, (and all the regular poses). The rack has a nice spread and is heavy how can I best display this? I'm especially looking for advice from taxi's. Here are the pics....



Here is the one he'll be beside 08 Buck....

Re: Advice on deer pose......

I'm in the same boat as you right now. I really like the hooking aggressive pose.

When I pick a mount I usually like to pick a pose that automatically makes me think of how the deer was acting right before I shot it. i.e. my buck this year was grunting and had his head pointed down the whole time. I just feel that the hooking pose brings this for my buck in particular. Best of luck in your decision.

I would pick a pose that shows the left side of his rack! He has a lot of mass, show it off The off set shoulder is great idea. Gives more size to the deer on the wall

Re: Advice on deer pose......

Look at the antlers on the "hooking" pose and then look at the antlers on the "head-up" series in the mckenzie link.

In my opinion the "hooking" pose points the antlers at you because of the head drop and I think it accentuates the broken points. The "head-up" does the opposite, I think it almost hides broken points some.

Re: Advice on deer pose......

Thanks for all your advice everyone! I was considering the the McKenzie 64U and the Matt Thompson 9000 series Head up semi sneak or Joe Meder Head up offset series. The last two are more of an extreme head up pose.

I think I have it narrowed down to the 3 semi sneak head up poses and the full sneak offset series..
