Hi Mohammad

Pose is a highly personal thing.

I would just look at as many examples as possible to get a feel for what's available/possible and then when you find one for sale that takes your breath away, go for it! Only you can truly decide which pose is best!

Best of luck to you in your search.

P.S. Much respect to you for the way you handled the assaults of the one fellow here. You are certainly the "bigger man" in my mind!

Mohammad, I think a standing lion shows how massive they are, and that the lion is the true king of jungle. Good luck to you sir, and please show us a picture of your lion in its final place in your home. (y)(y)

Agree on the standing...but every now and then you see a sitting lion that is pretty dang impressive!

This was at DCS 2015...

Its hard to believe that Fred would get so upset over someone wanting to buy a Lion. Different strokes for different folks. One thing Fred, if this has upset you this much, maybe its time to walk away form here.

I am ready to take on all comers in terms of defending captive raised lion hunting. Bring 'em on!

Having gone on a CBL hunt, I can tell you it is an amazing experience - or at least mine was. The hunt for the lioness to date has been the most exhilarating time of my life. Nothing like sticking a cat with an arrow from 15 yards and nothing between you and her but 0.4 seconds if she decides to charge.

I was told by my PH and others can dispute or verify this, but he said captive bred lions are more dangerous than the wild version.

My first PH told me the exact same thing. The people who say the animals are "tame" are full of it. The animals have lost their fear of man. This does not make them tame or domesticated, but rather makes them very dangerous because they will be far more likely to stalk you.

I was on the receiving end of one mock charge and two actual charges from the female lion. And the male lion that I hunted two days later started stalking our party and as we followed his tracks, we found his tracks following ours.

I suppose it is high time for me to put up the hunt report...

My master plan is to hunt one of those CBL next year in the Kalahari, then find a legal lion on the secondary taxidermy market and that along with reproduction skull and claws will represent the memories of my hunt.

I have a replica of the skull from the male lion I hunted in my office already and there is a lion at a local taxidermist that has been abandoned that I am hoping to buy. Although it isn't "my lion", he looks very similar to mine. In fact, I will need to make a call and see if I can get it. I figure that would be one step up from getting the fiberglass replicas that I have been offered for my elephant hunt.

Mohammad I really like the one in your example but I would spend the extra to have a partially open mouth, showing those massive teeth. Not a snarl but more of a pant. See mine in the lion taxidermy thread;)

I originally wanted two lions, in a sitting pose, one turning left a bit, the other right... One on each side of my desk, like some of the statues are. But then it was pointed out that is not a natural pose for a lion as he would not sit up and crush his testicles. And if they are sitting sideways on their haunches, it is just not the same and takes more space and takes away from the striking pose as it makes them almost too relaxed.

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!
