Looks awesome! Love that pedestal mount!

Hoping to get my Dall back soon. Was out of the country for a few years and told the taxidermist to take his time. He took me literally...

Wildlife Revolutions here in Reno did the taxidermy. They are simply the best even though Reno has a number of really good taxidermists.

Joe and his guys not only do great work, they also promise a six month turnaround time on all of the stuff I've had them do.

What really amazes me is what a great job they did in fixing up the left side of his face. It was an absolute mess. We still haven't figured out how that could have happened, as I only shot once and the entry hole was in the chest right behind his shoulder. He was bedded on a flat rock, broadside to me @ 420 yards and he was at a 45 degree angle below me. When I hit him, he stood up, walked back about 15', turned around facing us, then fell not ten feet from where he'd been bedded. He didn't tumble down the mountain or anything, so we had no clue how his face got so messed up. The only thing I can think of is the bullet shattered a rock behind him and somehow that did the damage. But I can't see how that possibly could have happened.

Never-the-less, if you look at him now, there is NO evidence of any damage to his face,

Congrats Kyle! Beautiful looking mount and animal. Was that your "Slam Ram" or do you have one left? Or did you have it before you took that ram?

From: NvaGvUp
09-Mar-17
Scoot,

I finished my FNAWS in 2015 when I took a California BHS in BC. The WY Rocky is my fifth ram.

I talked with the taxidermist again yesterday re. if they'd found any traces of bullet fragments or pieces of rock in his face. He said they had not,. So it must have simply been that when he fell over, he just happened to hit the ground hard and landed on one of the 12" high rocks near him with his face taking the brunt of the fall..

Cory,

Sort of, but they aren't close enough together to get a good picture, These are the best I can do. The fifth one is close by, but not close enough for all of them to fit in the picture very well.

FWIW, the walls are beige. For whatever reason, neither of my cameras do a good job of showing that.

Thanks, guys.

That's our living room, believe it or not. I obviously have a very supportive wife!

You've probably said in previous posts, but what unit in WY and did you use an outfitter? Awesome job on everything

From: NvaGvUp

Frank,

I hunted in a wilderness area, so an outfitter was required.

Really like the way you set up your living room. Love that track lighting!

Although you must be very understanding as well - you let the wife set up the furniture facing away from the trophy display :)

At least you can still look at them over your shoulder from the couch!

Treeline,

Actually, we almost never use the living room. If we're not sleeping, we're either in our offices (in our home), or in the kitchen or family room..

That big entertainment center cabinet you see is sort of a Potemkin Village in that it's empty save for a big TV that's neither hooked up nor even plugged in.

We use the Family Room for watching TV and except for a gun cabinet my father made for me in the early eighties, the Family Room d├ęcor is handled by my wife.

I tried to edit my previous post and add a photo, but it won't post. So here's another try.

Jeez! You really need to sit down and have a serious discussion with the wife!! That fireplace is in sore need of a life-size sheep mount above the mantle and it looks like there is wall space on either side of the TV for at least a couple of shoulder mounts...maybe a couple of euro's over the TV as well :-)

My wife says I have way too many mounts. Heck, we only have 4 mule deer, one caribou, a whitetail pedestal, a lion rug, and two antelope in our main living room! I keep telling her there is still some wall space left! I still have several elk, deer, euro's, and a life-size Dall sheep to put up on the walls. She is just not very understanding....
