Remount and son's Christmas present

I asked my son back in November what muley mount of mine that he liked best (because I wanted to mount his 2013 muley for Chrstmas, but new my taxidermist could not get it tanned that fast). He liked my buck that was a flehming pose. So I took it in and had my antlers pulled out and his put in.

Here is his 2013 muley

Here is my 2010 buck mounted

Here is his antlers in his new mount

 

Here is mine remounted (not home yet)

I like how the eyeguards are

I like how the eyeguards are on those antlers, that makes them really unique.  I have never seen them do that. 

Nice Christmas present and mounts.

Great gift, don't know many

Great gift, don't know many folks that would take a mount apart to put new antlers on it. Looks great! Do you plan on using his cape and put your antlers back on that one?

SGM,

I used the cape off of my 2012 muley to remount my buck. The whole reason I did all this was to have it done before Christmas and we did. I had it hanging on his wall before Christmas Eve. I save all of our bigger capes and have them tanned just in case we ever need one and the one's I don't use I give to my taxidermist.

Thanks for looking guys !

Very cool, I should have

Very cool, I should have saved a few capes from past hunts but did not. Will have to from this point on just in case. Only big buck I have mounted is the one from this past fall and he is still at the taxidermist. All others have been skull cap type mounts. Cannot wait to get my buck back and will post when I do.
