Wow ill never post from a phone again... What I was saying is that My second son asked me to start building a pedestal for his first Buck already he plans on killing it later this year. He is pretty confident for someone not hunting with an outfitter but just hunting open land in Kansas. We are building an Octagon shaped pedestal for him Ill put up some Pictures whe it is done.

Update

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!

tator 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

BruceBruce1959 Congratulations!!! two great looking Whitetail...

gfdeputy2 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
