Thread: Finally on a Wall...

  1. #1

    Finally on a Wall...

    This is the tom I took last year in NY, while hunting with my brother. He had just rolled one maybe fifteen minutes prior, but we never recovered it. Drove no further than a click down the road and got out of the car and yelped a little. Nearby gobble had us jumping in the woodline to get set up in a hurry. This guy flew across a valley to get to us, and it was all over in a matter of minutes from first getting out of the car.



    Anyway...left the bird in NY with a friend who does taxidermy. Was looking at a full body mount, but was talked into this instead. This has been sitting around the house waiting for a place to go on the wall. Monstrosity is an understatement...



    Can't see the hooks in this pic, but they are over an inch and a 1/4.

    I don't think I'll be getting another one of these...fan mounts from here on out...

    When your time comes to die, be not like those whose hearts are filled with fear of death, so that when their time comes they weep and pray for a little more time to live their lives over again in a different way. Sing your death song, and die like a hero going home

    At the breast, comes out maybe 7 1/2 - 8". The whole thing is mounted to a piece of plywood on the back. Might put it a little higher on the wall...
