How do you guys "plan your taxidermy" in that how do you decide how to have the animals mounted as in shoulder mount, wall pedestal, or pedestal as well as the direction they are the turned? I have 8 animals that @The Artistry of Wildlife will be mounting for me. I have no idea the size of the mounts or how to plan them on the wall. I currently have three white tails mounted and they are turned exactly how they were standing when I killed them. Two shoulder mounts and one wall pedestal. Wall space in my room is somewhat limited but will definitely hold all of these 8 with no issue. With the 8 animals that are coming I'm struggling with a plan. I like wall pedestals and most all of them will be that way except for an impala and one springbok. I may have one floor pedestal but I haven't decided yet. My proposed plan is to sketch out my wall and then try to determine the area/space each mount will take up, make a "paper doll" and them move those around on the wall sketch until I have the layout I want. We have a kudu, gemsbok, blue and black wildebeest, two springboks, impala, and a blesbok. I also need to decide on what color I want the walls to be and if I want barn wood on the bottom half. Any guidance here would be appreciated. My skins were back to Dennis a month or so ago so I am guessing I have 12-18 months before the mounts will be here but I need to get a plan together on type/direction etc.
