Last year I went to a buddies ranch to shoot a few culls and popped this coyote. Ruined a morning hunt and I caught it crossing a sendero. First one I’ve killed in several years.

I don’t know why I did but I ended up keeping it and dropped it off at the taxidermist for a shoulder mount.

I was apprehensive at first but here is the mount in a rough state. Will be completely finished in 2-3 weeks.

I’m thinking this may be my favorite out of all of them.

That is going to be an impressive mount.

That one looks great so far. What type of base or pedestal are you putting on? I have killed lot of coyotes and skinned many...all with intensions of mounting one someday. Never have done it though. The best looking coyote mount I have seen was one like this mounted on a base and it was sitting an end table.

It’s gonna be a flat base faux rock...gonna sit either on top of my safe or on my desk.

This one just had a really pretty, thick coat. A lot of white and grey, not nearly as brassy as the last few I’ve killed

Good thing you shot a self respecting specimen instead of these damned hillbilly yote’s we have out here.

Looks pretty good. Post a photo when it mounted on the wall.
