Hey everyone im a little behind on getting back on and updating my season as this has been a hectic year as many of you im sure understand. Last year I made a post
that my wife and I were going to the North woods of Michigan for our 10 year Anniversary/My 40th birthday and I was going to get to hunt my first ever high fence ranch up at the legends ranch.
AWSOME experience but enough about that! Yall helped me decide which firearm to take between my normal 25-06 or my target rifle chambered in 300WM and I thank you for helping me choose the right rifle.
I decided to take my 300 win mag and boy am I glad I did!!!!!!!
weighing in at 226lb and measuring in at 140" I cant imagine my 25-06 ( what I use here ) doing the job as easy. Lets just say 181yards with blowing snow my Win mag did the job like expected.
Anyways I should have had my shoulder mount back anytime now which got me thinking.

I'm going to display this shoulder mount at our hunting cabin on the wall. Our Cabin is a fully insulated shipping container. We do not run the AC/HEAT when we are not there just the Fans however it doesn't get to bad
on the inside. I go out and stay the weekend one weekend a month so it not like im never there.. Bugs are not an Issue!!!!
Do you guys see an issue with me putting my mount out there? I know some people put there mounts out in the Garage where they never see AC/HEAT however that's not me.
Just curious how a warmer temps and a little bit of cold affect mounts ?

added a few pics of my Buck and where it will be going in my hunting Cabin to give you guys a better idea on my question.

David

It will probably be ok however I would want that deer at my house.

Also, how did you like legends? I’m thinking of going up there with me and my wife

I have seen enough about deer camps getting robbed that I would hang it at home. Might still be taken from there too but deer camp 10x as likely. Plus weather... plus I would want to look at it all the time.

Hell of a buck! I would have him rescored though. I think someone missed at least 100" somewhere.

Legends is awesome!
Top notch everything is the best way to put it. It’s still truly hunting but you get spoiled with everything else if that makes sense.
If you ever have questions feel free to message me.
We are already planning to go back in 2021.

My wife enjoyed the get away and relaxation and just getting in there blinds did it for me.

Our camp is on property we own. Before we even went my wife told me if I shoot something she wanted it to go on a wall behind our couch at the cabin. On the other wall I’ve got probably 11 other European mounts.
I will go back for sure 1 more time that one will come home.

I have some heads in my man cave in my barn - I put in a mini split. Taxidermist told me to keep the temp between 60-80 degrees but that the main thing was humidity. High humidity can ruin mounts over time is what I was told. The mini splits cost nothing to run so you may consider that

Stud of a deer. It'd be a shame to only see it a handful of times a year

I am with you since the cabin is on your property and as you said spend time there year round.

Hey - where YOU decide to keep your mounts is up to YOU. That is your choice. Just be careful leaving the mount in a place that the humidity/temperature will break it down over time - beautiful buck

We had a company who builds them locally finish it out for us. You can go as Fancy as you wish.
My wife wanted something decent if we were going to be spending time out there during the year.
we have 2 bedrooms a bathroom with a shower/toilet/sink and a kitchen/small living room all in a 52' container

spray foam insulated very tight!!!!! My little man cave away from home in the woods

Thank you for the compliment on the buck im proud for sure!
If he goes out there he will be kept in climate controlled year around that's for sure.

I have a finished out container as well that I built. I’ve had a mount in there for the past three years with several euros with no issues whatsoever. Nice buck.

Have your taxi make a replica of the horns on a skull and keep the original at home.
