Archery moose hunt and Big buck

Recommended Posts

Woohoo. My friend Alain who does taxidermy almost done my mount. It has been mounted and drying for a week. Less than 3 weeks!. He has final touchups and I'll get it Saturday. I will post more pictures then. If anyone needs a deer or bear done he does fabulous work. PM me if you want his number.

Deer mounts are $500 now. The costs for mannequin, pickle, tanning solutions go up every year and there is a lot of work. I can't wait to see it finished. I have a deer mount at the end of my rec room looking right so we made this one looking left. It should make for  a nice view. I have 2 big sets moose antlers at the other end of the room that are 55 and 58 inches wide.

It's home!. Got my deer back Saturday and  I'm very happy. Now I have bookends as the one on the right is one I won Big buck contest probably over 15  years ago. Alain did a great job. He fussed about a gore mark on the neck that he couldn't fix because hair must have got cut when it happened. I like it...gives it character and shows he was a scrapper. Here are pictures of it with my other deer and my 2 big archery moose racks at the other end of my rec room. The room is complete now lol.2019 buck.jpg

All beautiful mounts and trophies moose-slayer  !  I never hunted deer , and only have one moose rack which is too big to put anywhere inside my house with a 6.5 ' ceiling in the basement . It has been in the  garage joists for years......and a bear rug at son's house .

The moose racks I have are huge as well and they take up a lot of room. The one on the left is 58 1/4 inches wide.  I got in 2001 and when I put it in FROW record book it was #9 all-time archery. Not sure where it stands now. They're really heavy as well and I cut out plate steel and securely anchored to the back of the  skull and then cut a keyhole slot and it hangs off a large lag bolt into wall. My ceilings are low as well.

Very nice mounts!  Gunner from the site does excellent work as well. He did a duck mount a few years ago for me. I believe he does fish, as well as, big game too. Looking foward to getting something "wall worthy" this year, ideally for my son's first deer hunt!
