My Ram finally came home
« on: March 11, 2018, 10:01:27 PM »
Got this guy at Lake Chelan in 2015 with a traditional underhammer muzzleloader.  I had 12 points.  The ram was 9 1/2 years old.  Taxidermy was done by Nature's Way Taxidermy, the delay was my fault....  :rolleyes:  It is set up[ with a cool rock as a backer but could also be hung on a wall.

I know that different mount styles strike different people different ways, but I personally think yours is AWESOME.

What a terrific mount of that great ram.

Thanks, I was a little leary when I saw the size of the rock before the ram was on it... I just forgot how big the ram was, so the rock looks good.

Very nice mount and animal.
