Looks awesome, man. Solid work there.

" In today's instant gratification society, more and more pressure revolves around success and the measurement of one's prowess as a hunter by inches on a score chart or field photos produced on social media. Don't fall into the trap. Hunting is-and always will be- about the hunt, the adventure, the views, and time spent with close friends and family. " Ryan Hatfield

Thanks guys. I'm getting ready to do a larger version for my elk from last year. I'm trying to decide if I do one that is basically 3x the width of the skull like I did with the deer, or do I go larger and frame the antlers in as well? This is not a great photo, but something similar in size to what is hanging above the fireplace. I'd do it barnwood though, or some version of that.
I hunt, therefore I am.... I fish, therefore I lie.

I like the 3x scale you did with your deer.  The antlers really pop.  The larger frame would still look cool but might not showcase the skull as well.   :dunno:

That's what I was leaning towards. I'll update when I have that one done too.
