A Great Idea.....

#1 Post by .45colt » Fri May 17, 2019 2:44 pm

Momma and I were out and about today and stopped at an antique store. loads of stuff I would never be interested in but I saw one decent size skull mount from a Mule Deer. I had to lean over a bunch of stuff with My readers on to see a small plaque on the bottom front. In the middle was the Hunters name flanked by " Lewiston Montana 1963............................. " 300 Savage....150 yards". it really struck Me like I was there. :shock: . Made My Day. I will make sure My mounts have the same information.

I have a whitetail mount from an old gentleman with similar info. He even mounted the 8mm Mauser case below the head. My mom was a realtor and had sold his house for him, she noticed the date at the bottom and asked him if I could come by and look at it. He had shot the deer in PA not far from our cabin on the day I was born. Nov. 27th 1967. He thought that was pretty cool and gave me his trophy. I offered to pay him for it but he wouldn't take a dime. It's hanging up in my basement with my mounts along with my grandfathers. I've been writing the same info on the few deer mounts that were special to me.
