    Missus let him in the house

    Earlier in the year I shot a nice head when @Philipo and I visited the South Island. I decided to get a shoulder mount done by Jason at Ruahine Tanning and Taxidermy. Jason did a great job and @199p was kind enough to bring the head up on his road trip this week.

    The wife even let me put it in the lounge. Stoked!

    modern houses arent designed for taxidermy , are they ?
    Cats have nine lives-which makes them ideal for experimentation...

    I thought you might have included his front quarters too, would have looked cool.

    Ohh no no no no!
    Show him the respect he deserves!
    Good on ya Adam you have done that in getting him mounted(Show him respect)
    Dont hang ANY shit off him, you can shoot a shitty six or 8 anywhere to disrespect as a coatrack etc.

    And once again bloody well done.

    Now you just need to mount the rest of him on the other side of the wall
    Looks tops though good to see an understanding wife too!

    Definitely a worthy trophy, Mate. And so good and lucky to have a wife who understands....
