Does anyone have pictures of pedestal deer mounts? Can you take your old mount off the wall and convert it to a pedestal mount?

Mine is a wall pedestal mount it looks like you may be able to move it to a floor pedestal if you wanted to at a later date.

I just picked up my pedistal mount and put it on an old rubbed post I pulled from right in the spot I shot him. It looks cool and is inexpensive!

I would think you could convert just about any shoulder mount into a pedestal mount. It might take a little work for a taxidermist but I think it could be done. Whether or not it looks "ok" is another question.

Personally I don't think a lot of standard shoulder mounts would look very good on a pedestal. IMO you need a different form to make it look good. Here's mine from 2007 on a custom built base.

You can put any mount onto a pedestal if you want. Here are two regular full uprights that we put on a ped. to show them together. One is a customer's deer and the other is a set of reproductions that we made off the real deer.

5575... Very cool idea with the rub post! Very nice.

You can put it on a pedestal and it may look OK to you but it will look like crap to others. A nice pedestal mount has a vertical arc shape(at the rear as you can see on a couple above), and the hair extends beyond the backing, which it isn't going to do from a former wall mount. If you are going to display it against a wall or corner anyway, it won't be as noticeable.

I had my pedestal mount put on the wall. It looks great.

Those are some nice mounts guys. You should be proud of them.

It's a little hard to see well but the whitetail on the coffee table is a pedestal table mount but my taxidermist also put a regular hanging hook on it as well so I could go either way in the future or substitute a future buck on this pedestal. Good luck with your mount. Charlie

I would like to change my mount to a ped.

On my pedestal mount, I saved some money and used an old end table for my base and an actual rubbed cedar tree. I also used two regular shoulder mount deer forms.
