Finally finishing up my brother Andy's first buck. Since it was a great buck and his first after years of passing young bucks, we decided to do a pedestal mount.
So I figured out a game plan and mounted the buck. After the mount started drying, I started building the pedestal. Never done a pedestal mount before and never built anything quite like this before. Never the less, I think it turned out pretty dang nice.
Once I put the finishing touches on it and fix up any flaws, I'll try to get it in a better setting for nice pictures and add a few. But for now, I just wanted to share the mount as is.
Pretty sweet right?
If I get an elk worth mounting, I'll probably do something similar. Of course I'll have to build an addition just to house the thing. LOL
