Ok I found a taxidermist I am comfortable with. I decided on a pedestal mount with an offset shoulder and a semi sneak with a slight right turn. I have attached a picture of the Pedestal I will mount it on I built with my son (who killed the deer) kinda wanted him to be a part of it all since it is his. He choose the moount style and pose. it is how the deer was when he shot it. Thoughts???

|quigleysharps4570||My congrats to your sons.|

|Hunting Man||Congrats to all. I too got a bit misty eyed when my son shot his first. For a mount I like to have it mounted to resemble the position it was at when harvested. No matter what your sons will remember their first deer forever. Nice Job Dad!|

WhoDat- that's awesome man! Congrats to your two boys! I can not wait till I can take my kiddos hunting- they are still a little young, 4 and 1. |
I was going to suggest euro mount if you wanted to do it yourself, but if you are wanting to do an actual deer mount, I would strongly suggest you to take it to a professional. Now, I realize those can be costly, but many of them will allow you to make payments on it. Most require you to put down 1/2 the money when you drop it off and the rest is due when you pick it up. I don't have that kind of money laying around at my house, so I realize that may be hard to do. Just like anything, all taxedermists are different in prices. Do a websearch and find some old timer out in the sticks that does them for 1/2 the cost as the big timers. ??
I'm just saying I wouldn't trust myself with that type of job.. I'd end up messing it all up. But maybe you are more talented in that area. Good luck to you either ways.

|Buckshot||Great job and congrats for the two boys on their first deer. Find a good taxidermist and he will have pics or mounts you can look at th see what you like best. I like a semi sneak turned right or left|

congrats to both must be a proud dad |
as far as a mount go's I personally like the sneak shoulder mount
maybe because that is how my first buck was positioned when I shot him & that is how he is mounted on my wall. With that said I would mount it one of 2 ways 1) mount close to the position it was when shot
2) let your boy pick out the mount
good luck & please post a pic of the mount when done
two thumbs up for two nice deer
