which form?

Submitted by chris on 1/6/00. ( csutton7@pacbell.net )

I need some help on which form to use for a pretty good sized elk
when the customer has only an 8 foot ceiling and wants to keep it as
high as possible off the floor?

offset droop

Look at both McKenzie's and Jonas' catalogues- McKenzie has a special droop sneak elk form meant for large antler clearance. Jonas has something similar. Both are basically a sort of semi sneak to sneak pose.

Aggressive pose on a panel

I did an elk mount using an aggressive pose full shoulder
form on a pedicle that really looks super and doesn't take
up much room. I made a small pedicle our of oak, about eighteen
inches high. I filled this with mortar cement for weight and
also to support the square tubing that comes out of the top.
I'm sure there are lot's of good ways to do this. My head is
set up in a corner of a room and would work well with an eight
foot ceiling.

Use a 90 degree turn

By using a 90 degree turn the horns lay back more amd allow you to hang the head higher up on the wall. Also try to get the client to pin atleast one antler. I found out years ago that it will save you headaches down the road. It may go in his house today but what if he moves? I've had them measure their doors wrong, forgot to take turns in the house into consideration which resulted in problems. And don't forget to charge for the pinned antler.
