Squirrel mount

     I have heard severaL opinions on this. I really like this mount. Some people love and others hate it. I am going to shoot another one this fall and get another mount done to match it. But this next will be a fox squirrel.

Sorry about the small picture. Usually I don't have any trouble with pictures but this one is giving me fits.

Squirrel mount

Yep, a little hard to see for me, but looks good.

Some years ago I had an Aberts squirrel mounted. I had it done where it is coming down a tree and looking out at me (head at bottom, tail up). The taxidemist mounted it on a big curved piece of bark looking like a section of pine like the one I shot it from. I'm real happy with it too.

I got the idea from squirrels climbing down and barking at me while in my treestand, LOL.

Interesting, never thought

Interesting, never thought about mounting the small game. I'm still working on finding all the big game to mount in my quest

Interesting, never thought

You know it's kind of funny, but I used to do a lot of long range deep sea fishing out of San Diego for a week at a time, and most people would want to mount some of the big fish they caught including me. On one of the boats I usually went on, they had small versions hanging around the galley and all of Tuna, Wahoo, etc. Talking to the captain how much I liked them, he suggested I do the same. Not only is it far more affordable, they add nice accents to walls without being over-bearing if you know what I mean. Besides, most wives has less problems with them too he said, LOL.

Anyway, usually not being able to afford mounts, I started squeezing in small things here and there from fish I caught that normally would be thrown back, like colorful Darado/Mahi Mahi in my kitchen to Squirrels in the den. I also made my own Turkey design to hang with some feathers etc. and the arrow I got it with one year. I think they look pretty cool myself, more affordable, and don't take up a whole wall... Wink

(still love to have a monster Elk someday though, 'cha-ching', ha ha)

How much does it cost to have

How much does it cost to have small game mounted? I'd like to put up some squirrels or rabbit, maybe even a fox, but I always thought it would be too expensive.
