3000 vs 3300 McKenzie form - any pictures

Hey Guys,

I think I'm down to the 3000 and the 3300 for my buck much. I can't tell much of a difference and was wondering if anyone had mounts with these and could post up some pictures.

Thanks guys.

The 3000 series is more of a droop semi sneak while the 3300 is a more typical semi sneak pose. More than likely you won't notice a difference between the two.
FWIW....both the 3000 and 3300 Series, although offered by McKenzie, are NOT scuplted by McKenzie sculptor, Dennis Behn. They were originally sculpted and produced by Matt Thompson and Matt sold his molds to McKenzie. They have a different look altogether from Dennis Behn's sculptures---with lots of overexaggerated muscle detail.

@Paul C Thanks for the info. Do you have a suggestion for a similar pose that you like better?

It doesn't matter what I like Pops----you're the one that has to look at it the rest of your life. I was just explaining the history behind the manikins and their creators. Your choice is just that --YOUR choice.

I get that. Just always looking to see what is out there.

Your comment on the 'Over exaggerated' muscle was something I hadn't noticed in the forms I picked and that's not really something i like.

The muscle detail on Matt's forms, like some others, is grossly exaggerated. That said, however, that detail will really not show up on a long haired PA or NY deer. Some taxidermists will use techniques to amplify and show the detail because some customers do like it but I have never seen a deer that "pumped up"---they simply don't exist.
Good luck with your choice.
