    Default moose mounting ideas...

    Hi All,

    So I killed a pretty nice moose this year, 61" and 3x3 brow tines. So I was wondering how I should mount the rack. Any ideas. I had to conserve on weight for the ride out so all I have is the skull cap and antlers. Anyone have any ideas. Thanks

    Unless you can find a cape for a shoulder mount, you're pretty much limited to putting it on a plaque....but it'll look nice like that!

    Where are you at? I can get you a cape if you decide to go that way. Capes are salted and dried now and will be getting shipped to tannery soon. If you dont want it tanned I will hold off on that.

    Default veto power

    Well I think I am just going to get the antlers mounted and not a head/shoulder mount. My wife has vetoed any other plans and with every kitchen pass burned this fall I have no favors to call in.

    Default Call me

    Not sure where your at, but as others have mentioned.. Since all you have is the antlers, you can either do a antler mount or buy a replacement cape ( I have several)..and do a shoulder mount.. With the first being much cheaper.. But a 60"r is a nice trophy... I am a new taxidermist in the Valley, Feel free to call or stop by and check out my work.. I also offer a 5% discount to MIlitary and 10% to children 16 and under..

    Default state!

    I have to be honest the outline of Alaska was my wife's idea. The girl that did this form me cut it out by hand. They both came up with a great product.
