Why is everyone caught up on the "wounded animal" "bad shot" thing?  I get it, as a long time (32 year) bow hunter, the shot is forward.  It looks like it is still a kill shot based on the fact the animal is mounted. 

I can understand if you don't like the mount or blood....but to justify your reasoning as a "bad shot" is a little silly.  I personally would have changed the angle of the arrow on the mount to direct it more toward exiting behind the off side shoulder, but hey....its a mount.  Oh yeah and the deer obviously died.   :chuckle: :chuckle:

Based on some responses....Would this mount be seen as "Bad" or Tasteless as well?  Just another apex predator killing a buck.
No, that’s just crappy taxidermy.  :chuckle:

My initial reaction upon seeing it.....didn't like, find it somewhat replusive.  After thinking about it and looking again........same opinion. :twocents:

I’ve never seen such a despicable mount.  I’d use more appropriate language To describe it but that wouldn’t be appropriate for this site.

In the Victorian Era it was a popular past time for women of means to taxidermy songbirds and small creatures for decorative purposes. So taxidermy has been and still can be simply another accoutrement that shows off ones wealth.

It is also used in the fine art realm, and the buying and selling of mounts among antiques and arts world has always existed.

That said that's not a mount I would want but that's merely my opinion.

Not for me, the actual shot and death of the animal is my least favorite part of a hunt (although obviously necessary), thus I wouldn't want to highlight and memorialize that.  For me, taxidermy or horns/antlers on the wall is a way to remember the hunt in all it's glory.  If I had that in my house, it would only remind me of the death part.

The good ol (PERFECT) huntwa crowd has shown their faces once again.

1. Anti's are gonna hate no matter what mount you have done.
2. Every archery hunter who has ever hunted has made a bad shot
3. The bashing of a fellow hunter gets really old
4.  We all murder animals, I for one won't hide behind whaf I love to do.

Probably see ya all in 30 days!!!!
I kill elk and eat elk, when I'm not, I'm thinking about killing elk and eating elk.

It doesn't matter what you think...

The Whiners suck!!

:dunno: I don't have facebook either and it just opened when I clicked on it.  There was a screen that opened asking if I wanted to join facebook and I declined.  That screen went away and I could watch the video.

Maybe because my wife is on Facebook it recognized my computer and let me see the video.

I can't get there on my phone to screen shot it.

Pass through shot with the broadhead out the outer shoulder is what I would have done. My wife would love that mount in our house. NOT

that's the stupidest mount I've ever seen. not even weighing in on if its offensive or not its just a ridiculously stupid thing to hang on your wall. I'm guessing its going in a single wide somewhere as an empty beer can target.

For me just the mount itself with the arrow in and the animal licking the wound is in bad taste.

The mount itself is pretty good.  The blood on the post looks real.  The blood at the impact just doesn't look right to me.

If it is a piece of art and the artist is trying to stir emotion I get that.  It's just not my thing or what I would put on display in my house.

Just proves all hunters are not the same. Nothing to be gained from this mount other then to create a freak show with the assistance of the useless taxidermist. For the taxidermist to have engaged in his part in creating this gory mount shows how willing and how far some will go to earn a buck in this desecration with total disregard for the deer who was sacrificed. Was he trying to imitate loser Kathy Griffin? Hopefully the fool taxidermist loses a lot of business over this and closes up shop. I know I would never give business to a clown like that. Hopefully the hunter has killed his last animal and spends the rest of his days haunted by the deer's spirit.

The mount was in Texas, where they couldn't give two squirts of horse piss what a bunch of libs up in Washington think  (I know a bunch of Texans, to them we're all liberals - except me, I'm cool)

*no, this would not be in my house*


Taxidermy is art, and I've seen far more offensive art than this (naked trump anyone?) "the kill" is a part of hunting and I think this is unique and depicts that aspect pretty well.  I won't criticize the taxidermy studio for this, the pic shows up a lot better on FB and I think it's pretty good really, for a one off.   It's not like a taxi gets a lot of requests to apply fake blood to their mounts so I'll cut them some slack if it isn't perfect, still pretty good though.

I highly doubt the owner of this unique mount has a lot of liberals in his house to sneer at it.

Wow, to each their own I guess.  Absolutely not my cup of tea, glass of beer, shot of bourbon, etc., etc.  Perhaps a skinned head, pieces of hair/flesh hanging off, zombie deer to follow this one up  :rolleyes:.  Wow.......

Art is in the eye of the beholder!
There is tons of “art” I see that to me just plain sucks.
Would I do that for o my buck, not a chance in heck!
But, it is not my buck.
