Lately some different and unusual mounts have been popping up on social media:
This is the first backpack mount I saw, and to my surprise there were many variations of the pack mount on Google images. I suspect these are most popular out West; few hunters in the East pack out a caped buck, though I’m sure it happens when guys hunt deep on a big public area.
Then there is the buck rub mount. I have seen versions of this over the years, but it seems to be making a comeback and is more popular than ever. Again, lots of variations on Google images.
The buck licking his coat—deer groom themselves regularly—is different and unique, if not a little weird. But to each his own.
The tailgate is my top pick of off-the-wall mounts. Different, but for some reason I kind of like it. I don’t like the 12-pack of regular Miller as an accessory; I’d have made it Miller Lite.
What do you think, which is your favorite? Me, I’ll probably just stick to boring old shoulder mounts.
