I'll leave the full head mounts to the taxidermist, but will do the plaques like this one of my mother's.

All the racks will be mounted on plaques, except the big one. The cape didn't turn out usable on him, so if the taxidermist can find a suitable cape, I will have a head mount done of him. I have a nice 5 x 5 whitetail at the taxidermist now. It has been there a year, so should be about ready.

Where is he going? If his taxidermist doesn't find a cape suitable, there is a guy who did my deer in 2004 that got a new cape for my deer. His name is Scott and he runs his business, Sure Shot Taxidermy out of his garage in Bonner Springs. He did a great job on my deer, and from the looks of everything else in there, he is great at what he does. I suggest him to anybody to is close to Bonner Springs.

I am using Colin Campbell in Salina. If he doesn't find a cape, I will talk to the Scott in Bonner Springs.

Thanks,

D,

What did charge you back then for the mount and what type of mount did you get done? Just in case I get the monster out of Miami County or the 10 pt I just got a pic of out of Atchison County.

I payed I think 450(it was 120 more because of the cape I had to purchase). I think now he is charging ~375 or 400 because his business has started to shoot up now that all of the local meat lockers are referring everybody to him. I'm not exactly sure what the "type of mount" it is, but here are some finished pictures(not sure if you can see in the pictures, but he did an excellent job at accentuating the neck muscles) :
