Since this forum has some great minds I thought I'd ask for some possible mount ideas for my 5x5 bull elk. I decided not to have a full shoulder mount done so Laylon's Taxidermy (Chris Laylon was along the hunt) prepared the skull & antlers for a European style mount. I had a piece of the hide tanned also (approx. 3'x2'). My orginal intent was to hang the hide on the wall and mount the skull in the center which I thought might look pretty unique. Then I wondered about using a 4' section of barn beam, standing on end with the hide draped over it and the skull mounted of top( as this could be easily moved....(ie... into the bathroom while I'm shaving, TV room while the Steelers are thumping the Broncos, etc.)
I also have one of Sammee's decals with a group pic taken at 13,500 ft. elev. that I want to include as well.
I'd sure appreciate some insightful ideas for you Nimrods !
