Finished this request today for an upcoming shooting competition. This will be presented to the top shooter of the day. Each month they ask me for a different type of prize. Last month I did another deer head for them which you can see in my gallery. Can’t wait to design next months already!

Made the plaque from 3/4” Oak and the stock piece from 1/2” Oak. The pattern of the deer is from a set of wildlife patterns I have that I adjusted to fit the shape of the stock.

Hind sight I wish I had done contrasting colors instead of all natural Oak.

Hope you enjoy!

Nice work, Mike.
I agree, a walnut stock would be nice, too.
