Thread: A different twist

    A different twist

    A friend of mine does Taxi work out of his kitchen, he was doing it on the side but now just for himself and close friends. This was a bowkill of his from the '07/'08 season that he just mounted the other day. I guess he wanted to try something new....what do ya think??

    Beautiful capes and chocolate horns seem to be the norm from the mountains we hunt in Central AR.


    This is the actual broadhead hole in the hide....just doctored up



    And the final touch.

    I like the idea! The wife wouldn't, but I like it.

  3. I looked at the first picture annd my first thought was this is a very gifted taxidermist, in a full mount frozen it time scene I think the arrow shot has a place. I have seen many award winning mounts of african lions taking down Impala or others. A good friend has on with the buck jumping at arrow impact with the arrow in the ground beside it.

    My opinion would be that it took away some of the "best in class" work on the mount.

    Doesn't do anything for me. I'd prefer it without the arrow.

    The idea isnt bad but i dont think i like it with a wall mount maybe if it was a full body mount then it wouldnt look bad at all but this doesnt really look that good. i mean even that is a far forward shot.

    Looks like a great mount. But like others, i think it would look better without the arrow.

    As a hunter looks OK with the arrow but as a non hunter or kids, does not give a good impression. Mount looks great though.

    The mount itself looks fantastic, I love how he captured the animal as if it was still alive. However, I feel that the arrow takes away from the beuty of the mount. Neat idea, but it just doesn't fit this mount.

    You asked so I'll tell you. I think it's sick.

    Rates right up there with guys who post pics of holes done by a broadhead. That's just my 2 cents worth.

    Did you pet that buck to death in your avatar?



    Surely it didn't have a hole through it or lose any blood in the process.

    Great mount, but I wouldn't have put the arrow and entry hole on such a calm full upright shoulder mount. The two just don't fit together.

    Your question was "what do ya think??" Do you just want compliments or do you really want to what people think about ?

    I think that it is sick when people glorify an animal like that.

    If you don't want to know then don't ask.

    I wasn't expecting another "hunter" and I use the term LOOSELY to call it "SICK" when it is part of the process of hunting/killing. It may not be for you and that's great, but calling it SICK is kinda twisted.
