I have 8 mounted. 2 with gun and my bigger deer all with bow. I have a couple racks cut off sitting in the garage I still want to do a rack mounts on. Alot I have given away over the years for people to use for rattle horns or deer antler lamps or chandeliers. I wish I had those back.

Over all I've probably killed close to 65-70 deer. Probably around 20 bucks out of that 65-70. Some of my toughest deer to kill have been 5.5-6.5 year old does.

Six shoulder mounts, one is a muley. In the garage in plastic totes i have around 40 racks, I am missing a few racks from years past. Nothing really worth while except for last years buck. A few go over 105 Does... who knows, im sure over 100. I hit double digits alot of years in a row gun and bow combined. Sometimes i think i get more jacked up when a doe is coming in and i know im going to shoot her :D

How many buck mounts do you have? How many skull mounts? How many that are too small and laying in a box or in the garage? And lastly, how many deer do you figure you've killed in your lifetime, buck and does?...

I'll chime in with my answers later...


I guess for me, you can't have too many. As long as I can afford it.

I have 14 shoulder mounts. They range in size from under 100" to 195".3 rifle kills, 1 ML, and 10 bow kills. The small ones were from my younger years, and they still mean a bunch to me. I have atleast 15 buck skulls on display. I have a box full of small racks that aren't on display. 30 years ago, I shot what I saw.There was no internet. I don't live in a trophy buck spot...In my lifetime I think I've shot over 100 deer. NY has been a 5 deer a year place most of the years. I've deer hunted in Maine, Mass, NY, Ohio, Illinois, Iowa, Nebraska, SD, and Saskatchewan. Here's some of the mounts:

I have 5 shoulder mounts in my house 2 are mine and 3 between 2 sons. 3 are bowkills and 2 are gun. 3 were taken in 2005, that was an expensive year. Looking back I am very glad we mounted them. Now the standard for shoulder mounts is higher.
