Default Hanging Elk Off Stone Veneer Fireplace?

I know I need to use a concrete/masonry anchor screw.

Not sure on size?

1/4” x 2-3/4” with a Phillips head, is that large enough?

Or should I go 3-1/4 to 3-1/2” long so it buries in the the OSB behind the stone.

I think the stone is 1” to 1-1/4” thick and need probably half inch of screw head sticking off.

This elk is hefty - probably 75lbs or more

I will drill a pilot hole per whatever recommendation masonry screws tell me to.

Want to get this done today please advise.

I have no ideas on the proper mounting screw. my animals are away from the fireplace as I have always been worried about the wax used on the mount getting messed up by radiant heat from the fire.

Stone Veneer (Sticky Stone) is mortared to a scratch coat. Make sure your screw is long enough to make it to the OSB. I'd use some type of toggle bolt to make it passed the OSB and the Sheetrock. Goggle Toggle bolt and there's all different kinds. Good luck.
Need pics of the elk you're hanging.

Use a good quality bolt, with a head suitable for the particular hanger on your mount. Make sure it will engage into the solid backing. The weight isn't the problem so much, as that is shear stress. The leverage of having that big mount sticking out a long way is more important. You need to look at the screws attaching the hanger to the back of your form also, and make sure they are good. We use these large level-right hangers for elk/moose/African animals to make sure they stay on the walls.

Lol we love our animals. I’m so blessed to have a wife that appreciates them as well.

Currently building a trophy room out building as I have tapped my limit with her for the main house.

Very nice man. One question, would you go back to Idaho and hunt elk with your outfitter ? I’ve been thinking about it myself

I would not hesitate - it was a legit operation and hunt.

We will be back after kicking a few more bucket list animals off the list.

Wax? There should not be any wax on a mount. Ever.

That was all my wife’s design - she’s got a knack for that. I just hung the mounts she’s the brains behind the rest of the decor.

That is an awesome kitchen and living layout! we are in the design phase of our new house and my biggest concern is wall space for my elk and my africa animals coming next year. If you dont mind how tall are the walls in this area and the peak height of the vault? This looks a lot like how i want to hang our deer along the side so it had me curious.
