Old Blacktail
« on: March 11, 2007, 04:09:01 PM »
My grandfather passed away last month and my grandma divided up his hunting stuff.  I made sure that i got a blacktail mount that he had done in the early 80s.  It was stored in a shop since then.  So the condition is in poor shape.  So my plan is to get a new cape in the next couple of years and have it remounted. 

My grandfathers mount.

he's got some cool character. nice buck.

" In today's instant gratification society, more and more pressure revolves around success and the measurement of one's prowess as a hunter by inches on a score chart or field photos produced on social media. Don't fall into the trap. Hunting is-and always will be- about the hunt, the adventure, the views, and time spent with close friends and family. " Ryan Hatfield

Almost looks like they polished the antlers as well.  It would be cool if you could find a good cape for him and maybe restain the antlers.  I'm sure they were nice and dark back in the day.  That's a great memory to have of your grandfather though.
