Thread: Dall Sheep Mounts

  1. #1

    Default Dall Sheep Mounts

    I am getting a dall sheep mounted in the next year or so and am trying to get ideas for a pedestal mount. If anyone has any photos, I'd love to see them! Thanks!

    your right, I should have advised you to bump up your previous thread instead of sarcastic comment, it's been tense here... my apologies

    Here are a couple of wall pedestal mounts we just got back, so indeed, there are some fresh photos out there We couldn't be happier with how they turned out. I went and looked at as many mounts as I could find so we had some ideas, and then took the professional opinion of the taxidermist to see if he was thinking along the same lines we were.




    A closer view of one.


    A closer view of the other.

    Default nice

    I would have posted those in a fresh thread. Regardless......those bad boys turned out nice and even though I wasn't on that hunt just seeing those great mounts brought back the memories of reading your hunt report.

    I keep trying to imagine the force it must have taken to break horn at that thickness.

    Default WOW!

    All I can say is WOW! What gorgeous rams and mounts! Now I'm really glad I added the new post...sorry about that guys but it was worth it to me! I'm curious if you happen to know what forms your taxidermist used for the wall mounts? Thanks again and congrads on your gorgeous rams!

    Have you seen the "sneak" left or right turn? I wish I had a pic of one, I'm getting both of mine done that way, check out Alaska Precision Taxidermy website, they are out of Fairbanks.

    Your taxidermists should have a form list with picture, most of the forms are made by McKenzie ( the same co. that makes Archery targets) You could probably pull them up online. Another cool pose for sheep I have seen is the lip curl pose. But check it out.

    jimss,
    I think the forms are called a "wall bust" or something, one with a right turn and one with a left turn. I'll see if I can find out what form he used.

    Bighorse,
    Many times I have contemplated and tried to imagine what exactly happened when that horn busted off. Possibly a serious battle or a nasty fall. I also think about that lonely chunk of horn just sitting out there on a mountain somewhere. If horns and antlers could talk, I am sure they would have many stories to tell, but maybe half the fun is the fact that it is all left to the imagination. If I knew, I would cease to wonder.

    Default attempted shot

    What if some guy was throwing the long bomb at him and whacked his horn. A bullet would damage it enough that when the ram rubbed it or used it the end would fall off.

    It's fun to guess..................

    I have to say that your ram looks alot like the one I shot last year from the Brooks.

    It's pretty common for old rams to develop a crack at one of the annuli. One of the rams we killed this year probably would have broken off about that much horn in the next year or so if he had lived another year.

    Default Sneak left

    This is a sneak to the left done by Kevin from Alaska Precision Taxidermy. The paint in the background takes away from the beauty of the sheep in the picture but the sneak gives a fuller thick neck in my opinion.
