2021 Velvet Buck Mount
Received a text message from Scott Lambley at Monarch Custom Taxidermy that he had the velvet buck that I was blessed enough to open the 2021 meat pole with ready to go. I just don't have words for the job he did. Just wow! This is actually the first buck I have had mounted, but have several others that I am reconsidering after seeing this.
Looks very good and short haired capes are very unforgiving when it comes to taxidermist mistakes. Eyes, eye-lash angle, very clean ears etc......The short hair allows you to see the facial veins as well. You definitely got your moneys worth!
Did you freeze dry velvet or use velva lok?We have used velva lok a couple times and it works great
Habitat, Scott used the velva lok. He swears by it.
Very nice looking mount! That is quite a trophy, congratulations again.
Can you post a field/kill picture of the buck for us to see?
I was just thinking about a velvet whitetail…
Turned out great, Matt! Congrats again, on a great buck!
Stunning! I recognize that buck!
That looks really nice! The form he used is a great representation of an early season deer as well.
Nice buck, nice mount. Congrats!
I would say Scott knows his business... that is one nice looking mount, congrats!
Nice looking velvet buck. I will be keeping that Velvet Loc in mind in the future. Congratulations for taking that fine buck !
Nice! Which recurve did you use?
Awesome buck and amazing taxidermy. Congratulations.
Beautiful. There's no substitute for keeping the real velvet intact. Looks great.
Congrats, and I love that you saved the velvet.
NeVer seen vein structure accentuated like this Extraordinary
Altitude, I used my Lonesome Wind Longbow.
That's actually legitimately stunning. There are some "got my mount back" threads on here that I cringe at. This is NOT one of them. Great job on the velvet too.
That is great! Nice buck and mount congrats.
Awesome mount Matt. Congrats!!
That is some art work right there. Amazing job, congrats
Great mount. Congrats again!!
Finally getting around to getting stuff ready so I can get the buck and other stuff up at home. Been working on this for a little while and it is mostly done. Might even take one or two of these back to Scott and swap them out for some others I have up in the garage.
Nice “antler” tree. Lovin them euros…
One last picture here as I finally got the tree done, bears hung and the deer up at home.
Great looking mount and detail! Something about a big buck in velvet that makes them look cool.
I usually grind my velvet up and drink it with my morning coffee....... heheheheheh.......
Great looking mount. Congrats! I've done a few velvet euros and they are tricky for sure. drill and remove antlers, head goes to the bugs. Pin and epoxy when done. Hard velvet not so bad...... trying to save rubber velvet can keep you up at night.....
Velvet always adds a degree of difficulty, not just for the taxi but they can be so delicate in the field too. Great job. On both ends.
Very Nice, but I prefer euros anymore!! Shawn
Shiras, damn, that display is incredible. Great idea..!!
Gotta add/say, never been a fan or the "veins" on a deer form. Just my opinion.
