Hard turn deer form

Unread postby jmaas07 » Fri Dec 10, 2021 10:00 am

Im looking for a hard turn form if anyone knows of one let me know. I don't want a pedestal mount, just a regular flush with the wall mount but turned hard. Van dyke full sweep is the only one I've found so far thats turned that much but I hate the old forms that don't show any leg. I can alter one sure but just want to see if there's something out there im missing thats already close to what I want. Thanks

Are you going to mount it or are you taking it to a taxidermist?

Reason I ask is just about any taxidermist that has been doing it for a while should be able to make a hard turn out of any form you want.

Im going to mount it, if I don't have to alter it that would just save time and effort

I would pick the form you like best and alter it for the amount of turn you want.

Check out the rinehart alert sneak. It’s kind of old school and may not quite have the leg you want but anytime I see a mount with one it always grabs my attention.
