    Very nice mount. The wood base has a cool barn wood type of look!

    Interesting note on that. The client has an old barn on his property which he pulled wood off of for me to build that. Though the elk didn't come from his property the barnwood for the base did. It's the real deal.
    I have a early 20th century farm house on one of my properties that I rob wood from to make things. It's a great way to recycle these old dilapidated structures.

    A very fine trophy deserving a very fine display...and you did it! Beautiful mount!
    My wife was just telling me of a store on Main St that just sells old barn wood. I may have to go take a look.

    Gizmo, I'll have to hire you to make me a pedestal. My wife complains all the time what a poor woodworker I am. (I get out of a lot of work that way...;)).

    I'll do it! Come hunt a Blackbuck with me and I'll make a Blackbuck/barnwood pedestal mount.
