Totally different configurations, but probably have pretty similar scores. Outside width is really deceiving when they have wide palms, but small rounded points. I personally prefer big palmated brows and lots of mass, so B.

I was referring to the mount styles not the size of the moose

I have done all my WT bucks in a typical euro mount, so would do B if the animal wasn’t worth a shoulder mount.

I prefer B, but my wife will not allow euro mounts in my house. She thinks they are nasty confused2

I do like A, but I'd put a different type of leather covering the skull cap. Personally the darker leather appeals more.

A with mesquite plaque and ostrich leather is what I will do my moose

I’ve got a couple elk euros and I’m decided no more cow/horse sized euro’s, cap puts them closer to wall.


Also don’t put cart before the horse, you will end up jinxed, or atleast how it works out for me up

I never really cared for the euro mounts personally, so A for me

This isn’t being optimistic, this is future planning.

I greatly underestimated the size of my African animals and now am in a full panic trying to re-arrange my room. When I get them all stuffed into my office I will have very little real estate left so I’m planning out possible options for inside the home that won’t cause a fight with the other half or compromise my space for that 190” mule deer I’m gonna get one day....

Im just messing with you. My skull capped moose will go above my bed.

I doubt I will do another shoulder mount or euro bigger then a mule deer. My house is scattered with WT, Jav, Mule deer, Pronghorn and elk euros. Shoulders just take up to much room. Being that my wife hunts too it’s getting full of mounts.

A. Much easier to mount, less mess.

Now that's a deer right there. I would work on that 190 before the moose.
edit back on topic. A or B is spitting hairs and personal preference and may make a difference what else is around it in room.
