Yeah can you mount my deer?
LOL...had a guy bring me one of those plus a piece of skin he picked up at the skinning rack so I could "make" him a shoulder mount!!!
I have had the same happen to me only not with a palmated rack like that with bases that could send you for medical treatment.
Happens at least twice a year.
Makes me think of plunking it on a stick mount.
by the way his stubby face and fat neck look he is a moose
I love when they hang a deer upside down and pack it with ice and as it melts , the head and neck absorbs it and swells3 times it’s normal size, they are hard to skin and even worse to flesh
I have had them come in like that. What a mess to deal with.
This cape was from the hunters best deer.!!!! I managed to save it by making patches from trimmings. Must have worked because I never mentioned it to the guy and he loved the mount. I had several folks look at the mount and no one noticed.
Had a guy bring one in from out of state yesterday. Horns in one hand Cape in a gallon ziploc bag. I dread thawing it out!
Since moving to Southern California 25% of the capes that come in aren’t usable. Just thawed one out the other day that was brought in frozen. Parts of it were air dried and other parts rotten. As soon as I opened the bag I knew it was junk.
It is a shame but some things never change and one could argue they are getting worse.
Really hate to share this one but I had a customer dead set on this exact mount. I tried and tried to talk him into other choices from an antler mount, skull mount or use a full cape from another deer....... no luck changing his mind customer is always right.....and this one was very happy with the outcome.
48 years ago my boss at a service station told me if a customer wants stripes painted on their backside you ask what color.
