|Now that the hunting season is under way in most states and all of you have listened to
me and visited, researched and found a good quality taxidermist (wildlife artist), you
think your job is done...NOPE... read on!!!
It is time you thought of how you are going to have that trophy mounted and where you will hang or stand it. All of this is very important and is better decided now, than in haste. You have spent a lot of time scouting for that special hunting spot, spent hour after hour practicing for that one shot, and I hope looked long and hard for a Taxidermist who will produce a quality mount. It is no time to cut yourself short on the pose.
The first thing you will need to decide is where in the room you will place this trophy. There may be some factor that will change this after the shot that I will discuss later in this article. Now that you know where you want it you can now think of how you want it to look in that area. Do you want it to be looking straight, or maybe have its head turned to the left or right. Do you want your trophy in an upright alert position or will it be in a sneaking position. Below are some of the most common positions, all of these can be straight, left or right.
