Default Got my axis back from taxidermist.

Well apparently I didn't keep my cape cold enough on the 100 degree hunting trip so my $1800 half body mount turned into a $120 horn mount. Looks like I'll have to shoot a bigger one!

I really like Axis Skull mounts. Sorry it isn't what you originally wanted, but it still looks good!

Nice looking bucks!


Not a bad spot for some free pub on the dotcom either

Thanks for the offer but I have decided to take one for the team and keep hunting for a bigger one. Think I'm gonna do a full body if I can get a 40" buck. I know that's a monster but I saw one on my last hunt.

Like you said, just have to shoot another! A 40" axis would really be something..

I like the European mount, looks very good! Is that the mid western brute you were telling me about on the right? Lots of bone on that bad boy!
