    I shot this buck in 2010. Originally I had Randomshot do a Euro mount for me but over the years I wanted to get a shoulder mount done. I killed a buck that had a really nice cape so I had it sent out and had the hide tanned. I had the cape at my house and before I could get all the parts over to Randomshot my son's dog ate the ear off of my cape. So again I was on a hunt for another cape.
    Last year NBK shot a buck that had a nice cape on it and I was able to convince him to carry it off the mountain so I could get my mount done. Really happy with the way it turned out.
    Thanks to NBK and Randomshot.
