Moose Mount Pictures please...
« on: December 09, 2019, 03:37:47 PM »
Alrighty fellow hunters.......I need to decide how to have my moose mounted.  Please post pics of moose mounts if you have them to give me some ideas.  What are the pros and cons of different mounts for fitting in a house??  I have vaulted cielings.....though they are not hugely vaulted (if that makes sense).  I was thinking a sneak pose but am also considering a pedistal mount.  Also considering a wall pedistal with scenery.  I have a few months to decide but would love to see pics pics to see what looks good. 

I did a search for similar threads and all I found are over 10 years old with pics that wont show up.  If there is a more recent thread....let me know. 

Thanks in advance.

forgot to mention.....if you don't want your pic on the web but are willing to text a pic, let me know in a PM.  I can PM my number and promise not to forward or post the picture anywhere.  I too don't like posting some pics to the web.   :tup: :tup:

Lucky you getting to decide how to mount your moose. I hope some people chime in I'd like to see them. Maybe someday I'll get to hunt a moose? Probably in Canada

Not a lot of variety with moose mounts.   Make sure your door into your house is big enough to get it through

This is a buddys place in WY, over the couch, thought it was very cool

A gun is a tool, Marion, no better or no worse than any other tool, an axe, a shovel or anything. A gun is as good or as bad as the man using it. Remember that.

Hopefully Lokidog will chime in with a picture of his moose mount. Got to see it in person and itís a great pose that seems to conserve space a little bit.

With that said, they have this cool way to have the antlers come off while transporting , then they plug right back in when on the wall.👍

Mine was a Canadian moose.  I still have not draw in Washington and likely never will.  I'm in the same boat as most Washingtonians......if you want a moose go to Alaska or Canada.

This was a question I ask the taxi today.  He said Moose are not a problem with standard 36" doors and that elk can be a much bigger problem.

Jrebel, which taxi are you using for the moose?

Jeff Reeves with Tru to Life Taxidermy in East Wenatchee.  He has been my taxidermist for the last 8-10 years and does a great job.

MadMax....I like the sneak and am considering that pose.  I would like a little more left or right hand turn and may get it with a wall pedestal. 


@lokidog  Would love to see it if you have pics.
