Here's a pic of the 9-point European Mount, just back from T i n k e r ' s Taxidermy.
He does such a good job!
This buck was pre-rut crossbow kill (PSE Tac15i) on October 27 of last year.
It's kinda hard to see the 9-th point. It's a little 1-1/8" crab claw on the deer's left beam just catching the light.
I hadn't planned to put it on the wall there permanently, but I kinda like it next to the squirrel.
Might move it up a little off the switch plates and leave it there for a while... if sweetness will allow.
