Im going to put my 2020 buck on a pedestal and never done it before. Cant/wont build it myself. No time to research a bunch to get real fancy. Do I just go to a taxi website and look??

Google it and you will get 100's of pics. My preference to buy one would be out of mesquite. I have built a few of my own and found a weathered very old mesquite stump to use for my last one.

I got mine from this guy. Reasonable shipping and it’s heavy and nice.

The mount also needs to go along with the decor of the room.

My taxidermist got a cabinet shop in Abilene to build my base

https://customtaxidermywoodworks.webs.com/ I would second this guy too. I have bought 4 bases from him. All have been great. One showed up delivered with a cracked top. He had a new one delivered to me in a week

I like the robin hood arrow in the corner.

The top picture is my buck, the other two are done by the same taxidermist....I love pedestals and have two table top ones like the first picture and another on a floor pedestal using a fence post

Awesome. I guess you could make a table top that could mount onto a floor pedestal and that way you could display it either way depending on the situation. I like versatility in everything so Im gonna give that some thought. Any taxis out there, or anyone, seen that done?
Or I guess you could just move the deer from a floor pedestal to a table top pedestal.....
