I just finished the mount on my 2018 Kansas Buck. I converted a wall pedestal form from Joe Coombs to a floor pedestal. I'm very pleased with how it turned out.

A wider angled shot. I'm not a wood worker so I've been using a production pedestal available at Van Dykes

Beautiful job on an incredible deer, Jim! Is it going to be at P&Y in Omaha?

From: Jack Harris
02-Feb-19
awesome display and awesome buck! Yeah I can definitely see that rack breaking 190 as a mainframe 10 - holy cow!

From: JSW
02-Feb-19
I think it will be in Omaha.

Since I wasn't able to enter it before December 31, it is in the next recording period. It wasn't invited to panel this year because it's not part of that recording period.

We are hoping to have the Brewster Buck there also even though it didn't make the deadline.

Thanks Grunt, The pedestal is fine. It has a 14" square base which is plenty for a whitetail sized mount. I've used the same pedestal for deer, zebra, dall sheep and sable. They are solid oak and really heavy on the bottom. I have a real cheap pine pedestal made for a planter or vase or something like that. It has a 11 1/2" base, and it works also. I don't think I would rely on it all the time, but it worked while I was altering the form and even used it during the drying process. I'm going to add a 14" square plate to the bottom of it and use it as my travelling pedestal. I don't mind if it gets beat up a little.

Unlike many of you, I don't want to get too elaborate with my pedestal. I want the mount to be the focus, not the artwork under it. Some of you have some real works of art under your trophy and that's great. Just not for me.

This is what I get to look at every day. Enough memories for a lifetime.

Beautiful deer, great mount. It never ceases to amaze me, they all start out as a cat sized fawn, and some of them grow up to look like this...incredible.

I'll display the buck at CTAS, Colorado Bowhunters and Kansas Bowhunters.

It will probably be at P&Y in Omaha as well. It will not be part of the recording period trophy display since it didn't make it into the last recording period but there will be some other mounts displayed there.

My Utah Bison did get invited to panel and will be at Omaha as well. It will be part of the recording period trophy display. That will be a first for me and I'm really excited to finally have something get invited to panel.
