looking for different type of head mount

Postby coach » Fri Dec 19, 2008 4:17 pm

A friend of mine was fortunate to harvest a nice buck this year.
I'm looking to see all types of different mounts.  I told him to keep as much cape as
possible.  Do you guys have any mounts.....for example...on the wall, on a stand...half mount....??
I need to see different angles. 
 
When you look at actual taxidermist website...they only show the best angle...so on
 
thanks
Cheers

I would suggest going to a taxidermist shop with your deer they have tons of animals on the wall to look at aswell as plenty of books with different mounts that is what I did. They usually wont be able to get to your mount right away so if you pick one mount and then find a different one you can change it if they havnt already started yours.

Hey coach I have a bedded down half body mount. I have a couple of pictures here at work that I can send but more at home to show the other side if you would be interested. Hope it helps

A few years ago a shot a really nice 8 point, but due to $ issues at the time did not have it mounted, but saved the antlers attached to the skull plate.  As it turned out, many taxidermists have exta capes. Because of this I was able to have it mounted a few years after I shot it.
As for interesting mounts, take a look at the "heads up sneak pose".  Looks pretty cool.
