New Mount Style

Watching a woman talk about her huge whitetail that she shot.  She has the mount next to her and it is like a shoulder mount, but the back is extended about a foot.  Looks really cool.  Have any of you seen this type mount - kind of like a pedastal, but a little different.  Almost like a half mount, but with just the back extended.

Sorry, no picture.  It was on

Sorry, no picture.  It was on tv.  Maybe I can search around and find a picture on the Internet.  It was really cool and I think I'd get one done that way.

Can't say I've seen one like that. Will be interesting to see the pics too.

Deer form

CVC,

Sounds like a wall pedistal mount to me. Did it look like this one ?

Here is a muley I took in 2008 that I mountd that way.

Yes, that is it exactly. 

Yes, that is it exactly.  Thanks for posting the picture.  So do you like it?  I think that is the way to go.  It brings more life and beauty to the mount don't you think?

Wall Pedistal Mount

I do like how mine turned, but my taxidermist added alot of detail to the face and throat and we put the head up. If I did another one I would take the head off of a Mckenzie semi sneak, just because I like the look of that head better.

Here it is straight on.

And from the other side

I did not realize I was

I did not realize I was looking at your mounts when I first replied.  You have some nice deer on the wall and i agree with you the sneak pose would be a real nice looking mount.  Is that all the mounts you have or just all the mounts you have in that room?  I only have one shoulder mount - pronghorn antelope and a european whitetail mount.

I am now speechless, but let me say thank you for sharing.  When I asked the question I thought I knew the answer (there were more) but I was surprised at how many you have.  You have lots and lots of great trophies.  We need to hear some stories behind the mounts.
