Thanks, Rich. Got him 5 years ago in Mason county Texas. Free range no high fence. When we got the lease there were not many quality bucks. We started manageing and got him 4 years later. I got off of the lease last year and deer were still getting better. Two 11 points and several nice eights. The best part is it is only 350 acres, and all neighbors are low fence also.

Start a new one this year with exotics on it.

How could I NOT?!!

 

Killdeer~ no, neigh, never!!
Long, long afterward, in an oak I found the arrow, still unbroke;
And the song, from beginning to end, I found again in the heart of a friend.

Denny, I would bet that your taxidermist has sent at least two of his (or her) kids through college on your tab.  An impressive display, and it makes my little trophy "shed" seem like a bone yard.

 

That's Pearl chewing on something she picked out of the collection.  There are at least six six point bulls in there, but I couldn't pull a couple out for the picture.  And they all weren't taken with a longbow.  Some were with a recurve way back when.  My kids will probably make chandeliers or something with them.  I keep all my Africa stuff in a storage room under a table, but am seriously considering getting an Oz buff mounted.
So don't wait until you retire to go hunting and fishing.  Don't even wait for your annual vacation.  Go at every opportunity.  Things that appear urgent at the moment may, in the long run, turn out to be far less so.

Denny your room is awesome. It is laid out perfect. I am building a house next year and have thought alot about my "bow" room.  What height is the peak, 16'?  I already planned on placing "nailers" in the correct spots.... LOL  Thankyou for sharing.

Jason, Actualy my taxidermist is Bob Nancarrow, Monty Browning's hunting buddy. He does a great job at a reasonable price and get it done promptly. He drives a basic pickup like me. I think he spends too much on hunting trips.  :)  

JDS3, Yes the peak of the cathedral ceiling is just under 16'. If I could do it over I wouldn't go with a cathedral again. Too much hassle hanging mounts and cleaning. I would go with a 12' flat ceiling so I could roll around at one level on scaffolding.

Lefty, The sable is the pedestal mount left of the TV. He looks cooler from the side I think.

Beautiful room Denny, filled with about 5 lifetimes of memories. And you're still a young guy.   :)  

Denny is too modest to say so but he has some great video of that sable hunt. His grandkids are gonna be able to watch the ole boy in action for years and years to come.  :thumbsup:    :thumbsup:

JDS#,

Denny's giving you good advice on the non cathederal route. My taxidemist designs trophy rooms and says 10 1/2ft - 12ft is best for many reasons. It is easier in long run for all mounting and cleaning tasks. He strongly suggests you use 3/4" plywood behind whatever you have on face of wall. If you do 10 -12 ft you can put plywood on top 4' all way around to save. It's easier in long run to do it all over wall and you'll never have to worry about where to hang stuff.

Denny,

Now that you have all that taxidermy in one place. Have you given any thought to treating mounts to prevent and bug problems. It only takes one bad beetle or even a moth to get in from outside and you have big problems. McKenzie the target guys also have big taxidermy division. They sell a product called PROTECK you buy it and use rag and atomizer to spray on mounts and work into hair on critters with long hair.It's around $30.00 a bottle and is cheap insurance for all the work you have there. It would probably take 3-4 bottles to do all you have there and every other year will do the trick. I have seen some real disasters with whole collections, as most of the time by the time anyone notices the damage is done. There is a company in the US that does travel around and provides a similar solution, but it's cheaper to do it yourself.
