Please put Kalvin's mount in the subject line of your critique.
First of all I want to thank you for putting your deer head in the Critic's Corner. For your fifth job you did a good job.
When I start to take a closer look at it and when I look at the eyes I believe that the contour or shape could be improved. Also, your tear duct is not shaped correctly and you need to look at a live reference photo to get the proper color scheme.
Your nose pad appears to be flat or no nodules and the color may be a little to black. On your ears they appear to be wrinkled and you need to card them while mounting and there is no ear-but detail.
All you need to do is look closer at your references. Keep up the good work and never do a mount without looking at references.
