Default Favorite Elk floor Pedestal Pose???

I have been severely slacking with getting my bull to the taxidermist and Iím hoping to make the trip in the next few weeks. I want to be able to tell them what pose I want for my pedestal mount. What is your guys favorite?

Hoping to put the floor pedestal here. In front of the window. So I kinda need the antlers to run parallel with the wall?



Here is my bull. Just because I like to post pics

Nice bull! How about having him looking slightly up and to the right in a bugle so you can show off that left beam

I like #1 but i worry that it wouldnít fit very well. Iíll be honest I am iffy on the bugling pose. Iíve seen some done amazing and some I hated. Woodbury is awesome but Im super torn on the bugling pose.

I wonder if you could do number 1, but with his head turned more like he's looking behind him. That seems to be a tight space to put an elk floor mount. How tall are your ceilings?

Like this? If they could do this with an elk (Iím sure any taxi could) it would be sweet

There you go. If that is the spot you're trying to get it in, I'd go with something like this.

If it were me I'd find a different spot. Right in front of a window probably isn't gonna be good if you want the hide to still look good in a few years.

Any idea how big of a space an elk pedestal mount will take up?
I have about a 330" bull that I need to change from a wall mount to a pedestal.

Ive mounted this form before. It actually pivots so you can adjust the elk to look where you want in the room. It can also be fabbed into any other elk form with some work.

I am taking my elk this weekend to Woodbury. I think I want to go with something like this.
