Deer head remount?

I just got my white tail buck back from the taxidermist Sunday, everything looks great except the horns look like they are off set to the right side of the head if you are looking straight at the mount. Since it just got finished can it be fixed up, I really lime the guy that did it and all mounts I've seen If his look great, just wanted some opinions before I hive him a call.

Re: Deer head remount?

maybe something pulled loose on the drive home? I wouldn't hesitate to call and talk about it, i'm sure if he is a good guy, he won't be upset, i mean after all you paid for his work.

Not sure why he didn't set the skull plate right when he was doing it, I would like to see it first before I go any further with it

Re: Deer head remount?

The deers left side could be set a little low , but hard to say I have gotten some bucks that they looked like they were a little off , but antlers grow differently. Compare the pics of it when u shot it if you have any front on ones. Does not look all that far off though

Re: Deer head remount?

I don't think it looks God Awful in my opinion. Yeah, I didn't see it before but in nature, things have a tendancy to not grow as proportionate as we would like. I think antlers could be included in this.

Does look a little low but the right ear could also be low which makes it look more off. Everything else looks pretty good.

Re: Deer head remount?

If you line up the burrs in relation to the eyes, it is off a bit. Most people wouldnt noice it, but you aren't most people. If you aren't happy with it, talk to your taxidermist and ask him if he will make the adjustment. Depending on the hide paste he used it could be just a matter of spending the time to rehydrate, open the seam, adjust the skull/antler set, and resew. Sounds simple, but can be a real PITA
