    I did it myself. It it actually very stable, and yes it does hit the ceiling before it would tip over.

    The way I made the mount to hold it to the pole makes it too easy to upgrade!!!

    Default Dall Sheep European

    Here is a dall sheep European mount I recently finished. If your sheep takes an unfortunate fall, or the cape can't be salvaged, or a new one afforded.. this is another option

    Here are some bear skulls I did up in 2011. There are two black bear and one brown bear that were all shot Memorial weekend 2010. Yeah I know I am a bit slow but there was more hunting that needed to be done.




    Here is a pic of them prior to being removed from the bears hides.


    This is a black bear skull I recovered that a brown bear had killed.

    I think this is my youngest daughters favorite trophy. She loves jerky and pepper sticks and is the only one willing to lend a hand to make them.

    Did you do the skulls yourself (water), or have them beetle cleaned? Sure look nice....
    Sheep hunting...... the pain goes away, but the stupidity remains...!!!

    I did two of them with beetles and two by maceration. Then soaks in coleman fuel then soaked in water and dish soap. Rotated the soaks every 2-3 weeks till I stopped seeing fat floating in the water or under the fuel. Then washed them real good and soaked them over night in 40 percent peroxide sitting on a heater, one final rinse with tap water and a good drying. Then I epoxied the teeth in and fixed any cracks or separation of the bone fissures. Once everything was set the way I wanted it I sprayed them with a poly coating and called it good. Lots of work but very rewarding in the end. I now have a much greater appreciation for taxidermist prices on skull cleaning/prep!

    Finishing up a bunch of spring bears, here is a couple big brown bears. All I use is masceration.. Slow process, but with patience, you get good results.

    Is that the fake spray on velvet or was the actual velvet preserved?
