Gray Fox Shoulder Mount--- What do ya think?

Wanted to show off my gray fox shoulder mount to see what you all think! Makes me want a red done the same way, facing opposite. Think they'd look good on a mantle together someday! First and only gray to date. What do you think? Please ignore it's current location! That's not where it will be displayed, lol.

The tail can be removed so that it's simply a pedestal.

By the way, thanks for the honest answer.

It looks good. I love the gray fox. Beautiful animals.

Im not into pedistool mounts on dogs cause it doesnt show off enough of the animal. Just my opinion though.

The back portion of the hide was ruined and unfit for mounting so this way the only option. His color is absolutely beautiful, especially behind the ears.

That stinks
It looks like it had a good coat on it. I've shot a couple over the last 2 years along with some reds and I for sure think they have the reds beat in the looks department.

Looks good. Ive seen other guys do the same thing when fur is damaged beyond repair.

Eyes are messed up a little bit and the tail is odd but over all a decent mount.

I ended up removing the tail. What do you see as wrong with the eyes? It may be the picture as I am very taxidermy-critical and I really like this mount.
