Thread: To mount or not to mount........?

  1. #1

    To mount or not to mount........?

    I shot a nice munty buck tonight, by no means medal quality but fresh pelage, hard antler (fractionally still in tatters but really not much) really even head, I've caped him and stuck him in the freezer, what do you reckon? Shall I get him done?
    I've been toying with having a shoulder mount done for ages, and what I'd like is to get one of my reds done but I don't quite live in the baronial mansion required to set that sort of size trophy off so perhaps a munty might be more fitting.......? Attachment 45166
    Opinions are like arseholes....... we all have them, and most of them stink

    Get it across to Chris R for a measure and ask him to take it to Colin Dunton. He does the best Muntys I've seen

    Looks like a nice head, and clean cape. Just remember when you freeze it to make sure it is well wrapped as its the tips of the ears that get freezer burnt easily. And it is a pain in the arse when they do get burnt to take the cartelidge out.

    Cant criticise his work, but just shy of 500 for a munty shoulder mount is more than I was thinking!!!

    You may be better sticking an apple in its mouth and putting it on the dining room table!
