So, we moved into a bigger house. Thought we had a plan for the taxidermy mounts.
Three small antelope wall mounts and one pedestal mount. But the floor plan is not working out so good for the Kudu pedestal. The house has high ceilings, so I am thinking about going up with the Kudu.
Any have ideas on an easy way to for me to mount the Kudu, and maybe using the all thread rod already in the mount?

(Googled and found many entries on going from a wall/shoulder to a pedestal.)

Sure, just build a habitat base for a wall mount. Sky is the limit; you could use artificial rock, earth, wood, or any combination there of.

Good suggestion Erik.

Otherwise it's shoulder shot with a big lag bolt drilled through and through. :D

gizmo,
So are you saying I mount a large shelf on the wall, and then drill a hole in it for the all thread rod from the mount?
Thanks

I bought some bullets from Rimshot and he is good to trade with!
Greetings all! I've been a hunter for 50 years, but only now planning a trip to Africa. I was fortunate and successfully bid on a couple hunts for plains game in SA later this year and next. Also a rare Native Texas (5th generation) and USMC Vet. Hunt safe y'all!
