    Got my deer mount back from my 11/06 buck I shot with my muzzleloader. Went with a neck mount since the room I was putting it in is pretty small.

    Almost looks like he smiling. Nice setup though. Haven't seen one done like that before.

    Maybe I missed it but did you tell us about your buck?
    Long shot? When did you bag him?

    Got him last November during blackpowder season. Shot him with my 50 caliber knight. 90 grains of powder pushing a 245 grain powerbelt.

    Was in my stand with about 1/2 hour of legal shooting time left and 2 does walked behind me. Both we pretty small so I decided to let them walk. This guy followed them out about 3 minutes later and stopped broadside about 40 yards away. Lung shot...ran about 50 yards and dropped.
