Man cave coming soon
« on: April 07, 2021, 12:12:47 PM »
I have about four years with of taxidermy coming home this weekend. I plan on making my first man cave with these trophies and a few others I already had.

Please share pictures of your man caves or trophy room/area. Iím not that creative and Iím looking for ideas.


Here are the mounts I should get this Saturday.


Yes this was expensive, and no I did not tell my wife even remotely close to what it costs  :chuckle:  :chuckle:


Work Completed by Natures way Taxidermy out of Spanaway. He knocked it out of the park with these!!

I can't afford a shop after the mounts :chuckle: But you get what you pay for :tup:

I hope to get this all into a loft that is about 16' by 24' by 8' 1/2 tall.

This isn't the best picture of the mounts but, I like the way it turned out.

To the OP: Sorry to say this, but you're in trouble.  I mean, serious trouble. 

When the missus sees all of these, your spot in the dog house will be permanently reserved.

Congratulations on the beautiful pieces.  You have earned your place amongst hunters!

 Thatís an investment in memories there! Averaged out over the years thatís a great investment!  :tup: If that was my stuff ďpun intendedĒ 😂 I would get that bear up on a classy, wood pedestal a bit on the short side and put him along a flat wall. The sheep I would try to tuck in to a corner a bit and the moose I would put on pedestals a bit taller than the bear and then put them in corners. Then arrange furniture/prints (artwork) around them. First impressions matter. Youíve got yourself a good challenge there!! Congratulations!

 Pedestals or not maybe think about getting casters underneath too.

 Hidden casters. Also, donít forget lighting.
