My Buck Is Home
« on: January 19, 2012, 10:24:08 AM »
Hi again everyone.  I thought you guys might like to see my finished mount from the buck I got with my bow.  He was done just in time for Christmas and I think it was a fantastic Christmas present.  He was done by Wayne Stuber at True to Life Taxidermy here in Medicine Hat.  Wayne was very patient with me going through the catalogs picking out the perfect pose.  He tried hard to create the scene from the pictures I showed him, including trying to find some fake plants that look like sage.    I think he looks beautiful and Dale built the ledge for him in our bedroom.  The barnwood look fits in with that buck so well, I just love it.  Now if Dale could find another place for his heads so they didn't distract from mine it would be even better. Hint hint Dale. 

Actually I don't mind them there.  The two European mounts are Dale's bucks from this last fall.

Looks great!  I love the base and foliage.  Its always nice to get something outside of the standard shoulder mount with a slight turn.  Congrats again on the great deer.

I think that is a classy looking display, Robin.  My wife draws the line at no antlers in the bedroom.  I better get her out hunting soon.... ;)

Robin grew up on an outfitting ranch in BC, so getting her involved was easy....but yes....get your wife out there.  a lot of women enjoy it, but many have never tried it. 

as for the bedroom, i came home from work once and she had redecorated the bedroom.  his and hers euro mounts on either side of the bed and new browning blankets and sheets.  yes im aware how lucky i am.

Robin says thanks for the kind words.

Love mounts that aren't the typical shoulder mount on the wall.  Congrats on a fine deer and a beautiful mount.

ISB does robin also go by Nina? Because sounds a lot like my little lady?

Just kidding, isn't it great to be that lucky?

im gonna go ahead and brag her up a little here.....robins buck won first place in the ladies big game division at the mhfga trophy day last weekend.  her buck also  edged out a couple other entries for first place in the archery category. 

she was pretty hesitant on letting me take it in because she was worried about some pinhead making a comment like its too small to mount or something like that.  she had to work most of the day, but as she was coming into the building i pulled the score tag off of it.  she never let me tape it before that day and didnt want to know.  all she saw was the red ribbons and all she heard was comments like this.  she is pretty happy with evertything surrounding what she did with this deer and says thanks to everyone.

     Looks really good congrats on a fine buck.  As far as mounting "to small a buck" I would say no such thing.  I have a smaller whitetail mounted and have never regretted it.  I'm sure memories of a great day will be a little more vivid looking at that mount for years to come.
