    I believe you are looking for what is called the "Sneak" form and it can be had in straight, left or right. It would of course be mounted with the ears back.

    Here is a few photos of a sneak pose, I think the ears should be back more for a challenge type look.

    Good luck

    Stid that link is for sure a sneak mount. But I would call it a challenge mount. I would say that a challenge mount would be a semi-sneak for with the nose tilted down, with a slight turn and tilt to the head. Also probay a bit extra white showing in the eyes and maybe the ears turned back. Wish I had some pics, but I dont. Take a picture from a magazine to your taxidermist. Any decent artist should be able to pull it off easily.

    Clarification: I would not consider the sneak mount to be a challenge mount.

    Boy I like the sounds of this challenge mount. I had a sneak made a few years ago, I think my next one will be the challenge idea.
    Nothing stirs the soul like an angry bull moose, thrashing the brush, snorting. Man I love moose hunting.

    Wade at Majestic Valley Taxidermy recently completed this mount. It sounds like what you've described...

    Default I know what your looking for

    Call Rich at Browtine. He did one of his own bulls in the same manner in which you are descirbing. You can't really get a mannikin in the exact pose your looking for, so he did some altering and mods, and it turned out frickin awsome. He won a 1st place ribbon with it in Anchorage during a taxidermy competition if I remember right. If you want to see the mount of the bull, it's on display in a glass case titled "Here comes trouble" in the federal building down town fairbanks..... I think it's on the 2 floor if my memory serves me right. Hope this helps!
    Be safe, and enjoy your time outdoors!

    Thank you very much. You've got it right, all I need to do now is get a look at the mount. I got the info from a guide who saw that mount and said it turned out great. Take care and thanks again!
