    Default Kids goat mount

    Finally got around to mounting my daughters first goat she took back in 2013, customers stuff comes first, I try and squeeze one of my kids things in now and then.

    Life size coming down hill on some rock, snow, ice, lichen etc..

    Custom base is hickory.

    Just thought I'd share

    If mine turns out as nice id be ecstatic!! Not to highjack, but curious if you've had a chance to start on either of mine? 9 point and Nanny from Kodiak, both turned in back in September. Hopefully I left you enough hide to work with on the Half mount goat with rock form?

    Ive been checking your Taxidermy Facebook page for sneak-peak pics, but have noticed any yet.

    Mark,
    I just mounted 3 goat wall pedestals 3 brown bear rugs and a lifesize black bear this week, April is goat month.. your goat will be mounted next week, while a bunch of the goats and lifesize bears are drying I'll be mounting up a few deer, yours is first. If I was to guess, I'd expect pics and a phone call first or second week of May, only thing that could push it to the right is the constant trickle of bears from this spring that need fleshed, turned. Salted.

    thanks;

    Jesse

    Thanks Roland,

    goat hunting is a dangerous sport, I never took my kids goat hunting till 18, still be a hard pill to swallow if something happened. I had been watching this goat for 3 years, had a good safe route planned and walked it 3 years in a row. Sept hide, a oct or November hide makes for a better furred animal but on a registration hunt that's likely only open 1-3 days every year, have to make the best out of the opportunity. I enjoy goat hunting, I guess it's in my blood, their beautiful animals, majestic, good to eat, and I enjoy mountng them. Took my other daughter last fall to kodiak for goats but she missed, then when they scrambled we couldn't be sure which nanny didn't have the kid. Ohh well, always next year.

    Wow, look at that backdrop. She surely will remember that adventure for a long time. Can't wait for mine to get old enough for trips like this. Way to go.

    That's a beauty of a mount. The picture at the kill is outstanding too. People say they are good to eat but I have not found one that I can honestly say that. I hear young ones are good. Goat hunting is fun and keeps you on your toes.
