Nicely done. That's one beautiful, but ferocious looking lady!
What a fantastic lioness mount, Dakota must be beside himself! Relive did a great job, looking forward to seeing her on the base.
Thanks everyone for the great comments. We are very happy with how she turned out. With just one picture to base his work off he did it right in my eyes.
Jeff since you said that I do think he could have found better grass to pose her in. LOL I will give paul a hard time about that one just to bust on him. He is a great taxidermist but fun to kid around with to.
Do you have a pic of the final mount?
It's a great mount!
Very nice. Sir.
The final picture will be a few month yet. I am building the base and doing the sand and grass when I get her home. Relive is done with there part other then getting her in the crate for shipping in sept.
@billc I saw these photos on Paul's FB page today. You did a great job with the pose and he did equally a great job with making it a reality!
Great team effort here.
Congratulations to Dakota, Bill, Pieter & Loodt, Paul and the entire crew at Relive.
You have really honored this fantastic animal by collaborating to create some beautiful artwork.
Tim it was your reloads that took here also so thanks for that. Plus I must thank royal for sending me the picture after telling him what I was looking for.
There is alot of my new friends from ah who had a part in the lioness hunt.
And Tim you better not forget the manicure your wife was giving that lioness! Come on, give credit where credit is due
Bob I was trying to forget that. No way tims sweet wife did that on her own unless they threaten her with tim shooting more animals then he already did. LOL
One more pic I forgot to post. Love the look coming through the grass and how focused she is.
Bill that is perfect! You've got to get some grass into the base.
As soon as she is home I will build the base out of walnut wood. They get some sand to match the pictures of were dakota hunted her which is a tan sand more then the red. Then I am going to use real grass like someone said to use on the post early on. I will post picture as I build and finish her base.
Just make sure you use the right kind of grass...NOT this stuff....
Oh yeah, she's real innocent...and easily corrupted!
That is what you use in a Colorado mount.
She does have that "I got the munchies " look in her eyes?
well after 14 days of fun elk hunting with no elk down I get this pictures which helps easy the pain from all the walking. She is ready to ship as soon as the permit comes. After the crate
was done paul went and reworked it to make it smaller to cut down on my cost for shipping. So one lioness,eland 4 springbuck,impala,bushbuck,wildbeest in the crate rest will ship with giraffe
@billc , looks like we got a few experienced drug addicts here....
The mount looks perfect....nice...
