Why is there even an argument here? Isn't a an animal judged on the quality? And dragging Carl Akeley into a conversation to bash someone in front of his peers? To me it seems disrepectful. Who the hell knows what he may have thought about the pig. So why would a shoulder mount be acceptable? It's an animal cut in half with no legs or body? I'm still a new guy so I know my opinion doesn't go far at all I just can't see talking so badly about a piece that someone really took his time on and apparently nailed it according to the judges. I'm with Tim on this one. A guys thinks a little outside the box and not that far outside I'm and gets ridiculed for it.
