What if mounts ?

What if you were a taxidermist and a person brought in a nice buck to have mounted? What if it was shot through the neck and had a big bloody hole on the one side and the person says they want the big hole and the blood on the mount ? Would you do it ? Or one with the bottom jaw shot off?

Most people want the animal to look the way it was before they shot it, not after. Nobody gets a full body mount with ribs blown out to represent a behind-the-shoulder rifle shot. Why would they pick the mounts you cited above?

why would you do that? you are spending good money to have it mounted why would you want it messed up , hanging in your house or camp. Also something like that gives hunters a bad name.

I've seen a mount like this floating around FB a lot lately. It was an archery buck done on a pedestal mount. Had blood running down the side and down the "fence post". Not my style. I think it is disrespectful to the deer.


This isn't it but this is similar.



...but those that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength. -Isaiah 40:31

I know bears will drink beer. We had a cooler on the front porch with about 6 beers and 6 sodas in it. A bear opened it up and drank them all. He would bite the cans and suck the liquid out. I'm sure he spilled quite a bit, but he looked like he had done it before. I watched from the upstairs window, in amazement. I guess I could have chased him off and saved a few cans, but it was quite entertaining.
