I don't know the name of the taxidermist he used but the deer is back already. Here's a close up photo of what this buck looked like. Hope you all enjoy.

That's a nice looking deer. that's an interesting gray circle around the eye. Can't say I've ever seen that on a deer.

Re: 475 Yard Buck Fever

I never took notice of it until you mentioned it. You can probably see also where the right antler had to be glued back on. This deer was shot in the beginning of Dec. 09' and was back from the taxidermist Jan 16th. I'm no taxidermist but is this thing even dry yet? I'm just hoping it doesn't get bugs or rot and fall apart. Most other taxidermists have about a 1 year wait, but it is nice getting it back so quickly.

Re: 475 Yard Buck Fever

That is a very quick turn around! Hopefully he won't have any issues with it. the quickest I've ever got one back was about 5 months. My 2008 buck was gonna take 2 years. I won't have it back till this coming fall/winter.
