Just finished up probably the largest bodied elk we have done yet. Shot by 18-year-old (at the time) Brittny on the general rifle cascade elk tag in 2013. Just look at the size of the other bull for comparison.

Top 10 Most Horrible Whitetail Deer Mounts [PICS]

Please people, don't take your animal to just any taxidermist just because they are close, or cheap or fast. You should always take a look at the work they've done before you make up your mind. Sadly we've had many mounts come in right after they were picked up from other taxidermists. (We will not share names) Feel free to stop by our shop and check out our show room and see if we reach the bar for you. I can promise you our mounts don't look like this.

This is why it's important to pick a good taxidermist!

So here is a bull we took in last week. We know it's legal for a 1 bull tag, that's how it was shot. But if you had a spike only tag, would it be legal on that? We think we already know the answer but we're interested to see your guys' answers. 5x1x1.
