benderofwood,
Especially well said. The proof of these fellas dedication resides on their walls and all I can do is applaud their accomplishments. When I see rooms like these I don't think of the money it cost, but the memories that must surround the hunter.

My hats of to all of of you--us, I suppose--that devote your lives to your passion. I can't think of a better arrangement.

Great stuff. And thanks to those who posted their photo. It pointed out the fact I need vaulted ceilings...well one day. Maybe....

I agree with Denny on the vaulted ceilings. Mine are 26' and the top 10' or so are gonna be useless. If you put anything up there, you can't see it well enough to appreciate it. Not only does it make it a female dog to hang stuff, but cleaning is a major operation as well..

Denny....all ya gotta do is show up brother

Denny,
AWESOME room!  Truly shows your dedication to your craftsmanship and your passion.  Just a couple burning questions since you said that you shot everything in the room with a longbow.  

1)  Where's the best shot placement for a plasma flatscreen and recliner?

2)  What did the other customers do at the store when you shot the aforementioned furniture?     :smileystooges:

Seriously, great displays and thank you for sharing your passion with all of us.

Peter! I use it every morning right before I go to Cracker Barrell and have Uncle Hershels Breakfast. The bowflex is good for hanging clothes on to dry.
The Dr. told me to go easy on the treadmill, not to try and do too much right off so the 1st day, I turned it on and watched it run for 30 minutes.

Pat...You know how bowhunters are...the challenge is greater to hit a smaller basket   :)  
My wife agrees with you though

Joe...Trust me, there is NOTHING on tv to inspire me to do anything :-)

You truly are blessed to have had the chance to hunt all of those animals, and cherish the memories in such a beautiful room.

here's part of mine.

I can't find all the ones I have of it..maybe they are at home. I agree with the mistake of choosing vaulted ceilings..difficult to hang stuff, a lot of wasted space, and cleaning is tough!

I'm trying to find a picture of my caribou that is mounted, and hung on the vaulted ceiling, up high. He measured 367 P&Y..but he looks like a dink cause he is up so high you have no reference and cannot see it well that high up.

If I can find it you will see what I mean.
