    Buckwild Taxidermy did an excellent job,can't thank him enough. It makes my Kentucky 8 pointer look like a fawn. He makes me in aw every time I look up at him,just can't get over how big he is. He net scored 168 3/8.

    NICE! I always wanted to have a head mount like that and have the rest mounted and slid up against that side of the house.

    That would be really cool.:D
    There's an auto body shop over in Muncie that has that back half of a car mounted up against the side of the building. :D

    Very nice mount squirrel!

    I do believe your profile name is a false statement....or your squirrels really look different in your part of the country than they do here, if that is the case your big game must require a bazooka! LOL

    All jokes aside, very nice mount you have there!

    I can kill stuff if I have to.
    I don't give a second thought to dispatching rattlers.
    A fish or a chicken for the pot I can do, but after turning out its lights, and handling the guts, it needs to reside in the fridge for a short while before I can pretend it's just food, and not something that had to die because I said so.

    If I was starving and broke, I could kill and eat just about anything, if I had to.

    If a person calls hunting a deer with a rifle that can shoot 1000 yds, and peg a fly with accuracy a sport, I have a hard time buying it.
    Now, jumping out of a tree, tackling it to the ground and facing possible death, I might consider sport.
    Even though they aren't real, there is no way I could look something in the eyes everyday that I murdered.
    Yeah, I'm a wus like that, take my man card if necessary.

    Even though almost every dinner I eat had a face, I just don't want to see it.

    Some of us take pride in putting food on the table. Having a mount is another way of doing that. Not just throwing it aside in waste. Not pretending it didn’t exist and gave its life to feed us.
    I also don’t call them “trophies”. That’s a label I don’t agree with personally.

    I've taken deer about any way except jumping out of a tree onto one. A friend of mine tried that when we were in high school. It almost disemboweled him. Them hooves are sharp!

    I had a cousin who filled up his entire livingroom with mounted deer he'd killed

    Eventually he started using them as hat racks...:LOL:

    You can always get them redone. He does that,he re-capes them and touches them up if you want to.
