I picked up my 2011 archery buck last night, been a long wait but it was worth it. This is the first buck I've ever had mounted and it wasn't just because of the rack but the fact that it was a pretty special deer to me.
The aggressive pose I chose for the mount was a no-brainer
as that was his exact pose when I released the arrow. He was coming in
to confront two other bucks and he was a bit peeved. I'm tickled to
death in the way it turned out and just looking at it takes me back to
that exact moment in time, which is what a mount should do in my opinion.
want to thank Bill Solinger of Solinger's Taxidermy in Shelocta, PA for
an outstanding job! It exceeded my expectations and I couldn't be
