What is the most Difficult species for you to mount?

Discussion in 'Deer and Gameheads' started by PLTannery, Jan 18, 2007.

  1. What in your opinion is the most difficult species( or Gender of species) to mount? The one that you cuss to yourself everytime one walks thru your door. And why do you feel they are so difficult?

    Just wondering.

    Thanks

    I'll bet an elephant would be a pain in the ass, haven't seen too many roll in yet though. In my shop I think I dislike turkeys the most.

    I have two, first I cant stand to skin coyotes, especially wet ones! I enjoy putting them together though! Second, would probably be turkeys also. Not real fond of the fleshing part.

    Becky P One must believe the glass is half full.

    Fish, although I'd imagine an elephant would be pretty tough, especially since I would have to do it in the barn because it wouldn't fit in my shop, LOL. OK back to fish, they stink and then I have to paint the dang things - usually more than once.

  10. For me it's anything killed by me personally. Cant seem to find the motivation. One the best deer i have ever killed was on Jan. 25 2007 just a few days after this topic was started. Still not mounted. ;)
     
  11. This one HAS to take the cake! I've always wondered how one handles the skunks...P-U!
