Default Which McKenzie Form?

Remove this ad.....
become a Supporting Member today.
I have two deer that I'm getting mounted this year...and wanted the experts' input on which form is best....

I currently have two that are the McKenzie 9800, I think (maybe you guys can confirm).

Which McKenzie Form? - Taxidermy

Which McKenzie Form? - Taxidermy

I'm thinking of the McKenzie 8400 series for my next ones, but wanted to see if you guys knew of anything else for these two. I was thinking the same form for both and offset them like I have the pedestal ones facing in toward each other, but due to their different body styles you may recommend a different form for each.

First one is a big neck (36" at the base, 25" just under the jaw), full rut buck.

Which McKenzie Form? - Taxidermy

Second one is a much smaller deer, much taller rack.

Which McKenzie Form? - Taxidermy

any help would be greatly appreciated...

Scott, your just showing off now..


The second picture is a very nice job done on that deer.
The McKenzie HD series is up high on my list of forms that I like.
84"s are good ones too, I like them as well. You can't go wrong with that choice.

I am no taxidermist, but if I were to pick a form for those 2 deer, my 2 favorite forms are the Mackenzie 6400U, and for the big bodied bucks you must see the new one out by Revolution called the Intimidator.

www.revolutiontaxidermysupply.com


I have 3 bucks mounted from these forms, the Last Chance, Hide&seek, and the Artistic Sweep. They are very cool looking poses.


The 6400 is still my favorite, especially with a wide rack and full neck..

I agree with unreel. I JUST mounted a buck on a relaxed sweep and I love the mannikin with the detail in the form. I shot a decent buck with a big neck and the intimdator is where I will be at and I will be entering it at the MTA show this year. I also like there offset mannikins. Give them a look. Very nice company.
