  • Got my sheep back

    Skip's Taxidermy. Poor quality pictures but he does fantastic work.

    Nice! That's a heck of a sheep my man. I like that angled mount, what do you call that?

      Wall Pedestal. I've seen some wall pedestal mounts that are really angled, I liked Skip's (he makes his own forms) as it was a kind of half a pedestal, if you will.

                  I really like your mount and that form. I believe I saw that sheep at Skip's if you are talking about Skip in Salcha. The form caught my eye and I took notice because I might have mine done that way also.

                  Congrats on a great Ram and a wonderful looking mount.

                    Yep, Skip in Salcha. My first time meeting him, as I had someone else drop off the horns. Its a long drive from Anchorage but his work is well worth it. He had some amazing sheep in his shop, a stone sheep that was unbelieveable. I was in somewhat of a hurry but we started talked hunting and after 90 minutes I was just scratching the surface of good tales. Great guy, super quality work.

                      Nice mount! For those who would like to have a "wall pedestal" or "pedestal" mount of any trophy, make sure you bring enough cape out of the field (make the circumference cut well behind the shoulders). This style is becoming more popular, for good reason. They look nice!

                          Skip, does truly live and breathe sheep hunting. From the incrediable sheep of his own on the wall to the Super Cub by his shop. Any sheep hunter can spend hours talking sheep with Skip, and his work is first rate. We spent over a hour when we went to pick up my friends sheep. He places all the completed mounts on the wall as you walk in giving you a great view of a variety of options.

                          Again TW, a truly beautiful trophy Sir!!! Is it Aug yet???
