Well my brother finally got his mount back from the taxidermist. I called this one in and bro shot it with his 17 Rem. It ran about 5 yards. It is only the second one that I know I called in. So I was pretty proud of him for tagging it.



I think it looks pretty nice. He is happy to get it back after waiting about 2 years for it. But is a little PO'd because the taxidermist didn't mount it the way he was told and paid too. It was not supposed to be a pedestal mount.

It is that a Missouri lion? smile For what it's worth I like the pedestal mount for that particular use. Congrats to both of you guys!

No, not a MO lion! I think that would be illegal. smile It was taken in Arizona. Tagged, reported, and check by a wildlife official. I believe "game and fish" even took a tooth.

One problem, he has nowhere to put a pedestal mount. That is why he wanted a wall mount. The guy tried to fix it, but goofed that up too.



The arrow points to where it is supposed to attach to the wall, (wood frame). However the wood frame sticks out about 4" from the wall.

Looks great, even though I also prefer wall mount I like the pedestal. Good for a cougar too becasue it doesn't take up too much space.

I wouldn't be too happy either if it took two years and it's different than what I requested, least it came out good.

Congrats to you both on the cat. I'd be pissed at the taxi guy though. Screwed up the wall mount and the nose is the wrong color,unless this cat had an all black nose ? Left eye looks of center, but it could be the angle of the pic.

Good catch! I didn't notice that at first, but after looking at pics of other cougars, the black nose really stands out as out-of-place! I think I would have to have that fixed.

I like the pedestal mount but understand being upset if that's not what you ordered.

Regards,
