Shoot smaller deer like I do so that the taxidermist feels sorry for you and works all night to fit the cape over a thicker form much larger than the deer was in real life. The last one I got mounted came back with a much thicker neck than he really had. \:\)

By the way, I've never shot one as big as yours so I'd be real happy with him for sure!

Just to be clear. .. I was joking about the shrinking. I'm more than happy with the taxidermist's job. \:\)
