Taxidermist help needed.Contributors to this thread:
I shot a nice buck this year and I wanted to have a wall pedestal mount. However before I could tell my friend who caped it out he cut it for a regular shoulder mount. So, my question is does anyone make a wall pedestal form for a short cape with a left turn. Any help will be much appreciated. Thanks!

Google your question. Might get an answer. https://www.mckenziesp.com/Whitetail-Deer-C16.aspx Call them. Any form can be cut down.
A good taxidermist could cut and modify a regular shoulder form to become a turned wall pedestal and fit it to whatever length cape you have. But it may look a little funny depending how short it ends up having to be. A good taxidermist could probably also use some hide from the wall side to extend the exposed side and sew/blend it to look just fine on a standard wall pedestal.
Most wall pedestal forms are designed to use a regular cut shoulder mount cape. If your buddy cut the cape behind shoulder and down to about the knees it will be fine. (That’s the standard cut)
McKENZIE's form has a shorter shoulder than others i have used.
