Dman - I was joking with reference to the weight of blacktails. Some people have never seen one over 150 lbs.

For a 14 year old deer mount that thing looks amazing in that picture!   I see mounts 2 and 3 years old with lips pulling, ears cracking, and eye skin pulling out.  From what I can see in that picture the taxidermist that did that deer knew what he or she was doing.

Michelle - Thanks. It only cost me about $175. He did 3 blacktails and 4 black bears for me and my family. He did great work at a great price, then went belly up. Actually he got in some trouble with F&G and then only did exotics, now I am not sure if he even does that.

Yeah, you don't want to get into trouble with F&G.  I keep everything in my shop legal.  Their is no other way to do it.  I don't want to be in violation of anything.  If I am not sure of something I will always call F&G and ask.  It's not worth it.  To bad about him.  From what I can see in the pictures he did good work!
