    The P head will eventually be auctioned off with the money going to Sarina. I've just got to find time to set down and put those dang eye's in! So yes the PHead will be leaving.

  5. This mount I wanted to sell but just cant bring myself to do it.
    4 Blues, BOC, BOS, People choice, Taxidermists Choice in 2 states and a WASCO.

    There is a funny story that goes along with the piece involving John Matthews and a bunch of honorable mention ribbons, they tell me the look on my face was priceless.

    All that and it sits in my basement wrapped in plastic, maybe i should sell it.

    Nice pieces everyone!!

    Matt, I can say first hand that that was an amazing mount. Maybe if you have a minute you can share the story with everyone in detail. It was a good one! LOL. Great job.

  11. My wolf-dog hybrid shoulder mount -

    [​IMG]

    It has quite a story behind it + I was barely able to acquire the cape & skull at all - but I got lucky. It was also one of my first mounts period, back when I was just out of highschool.

    The wolf-dog was someone's pet and it escaped and caused quite a bit of damage to other animals - it killed a calf, attacked a cat (don't know how the cat got away alive!) and mauled a full-grown cow so bad that the cow had to be put down. The animal control was afraid it would attack people as well as livestock so they tried to trap it and when that failed they had to hunt it down and shoot it.

    I knew someone who worked at animal control and was able to get the cape and skull (though they gave it to me very reluctantly). I also have the skull - won't sell that either.

    My biggest WT Deer that I killed a 160''Plus. Hold on I think I would sell him but the price would be outragest.

    Definitely my baby tiger ... It would be illegal to sell him, but even if it weren't, I wouldn't sell!

    Almost everything else could be bought IF the price was high enough

    It's all for sale for the right price. And I don't care what happens to it after it leaves my possession.
