After taking this free-range West Texas elk back in 2016 (thanks Mulie Mike!), I found out my ceilings weren’t all enough. I even raised one of my ceilings during our home remodel in hopes it would fit but it was just too much animal for the room.
I’ve been hanging the euro mount for the past few years but decided to get the shoulder mount done because our ceiling at the new lakehouse was perfect for it.

I got the mount back from my taxidermist (Rocky Stanley) on Friday and hung it yesterday. I’m super proud of this animal!

It looks great in that spot. Love the look with the beam over head.


See y’all around the campfire.
