Default Forged Whitetail deer rack...Full Scale

Been working on this in my "spare time" for about a month. Forged from 1 1/2" solid mild steel round bar and 1" solid steel round bar. Cap and arrowhead mount are 14 gauge steel. Whole piece weighs about 45 pounds.

I tipped off the state wildlife agency about your mount. They told me they'd stop by your place next week to see if it's legal. Hope you've got the tag.
