I drove the handsome, wind-blown lion home to EasTex without a hitch. I'm thrilled with the mount to say the least. Thanks, Evelyn and Mike!

As soon as I get the cat situated in my trophy room, I'll post some photos. Outstanding work by Billington Ranch Taxidermy!

Thank you Dave. We appreciate you letting us mount your cat. I was a little nervous on the transport. Glad the cat made it home safely. Looking forward to some pics.

Absolutely stunning!! Heck of a job.

I think I would have rather had the drivers side leg come down on the back, but incredible taxidermy talent up

UPDATE, MORE PICS....We finally got the lion set up in my trophy room. Like rearranging furniture, Karen had my brother and I moving it all over the place until she was satisfied. We think it looks better on the floor rather on a table, but we may change it down the road. Here are the "after" photos to go with the Billington "before" pictures.






Thanks once again, Evelyn and Mike, for the superb professional job!

I agree, looks great there, sure makes the room "pop", with the other mounts and decor. great center piece.

That cat looks like it's still alive. up

Re: Cougar mount finished for forum member - 07/20/14 12:23 AM

Our two pugs think it's sure 'nuff alive. They give it a wide berth and their hackles stand up when they walk through the room. But I've seen this behavior before.....they'll be back to normal in a day or two.

(and the lion will STILL look great)

Excellent work Mike. One of the most natural-looking lion faces I've seen done. up

Dawaba-Sweet mount!

Sure looks a whole lot better than the one STXranchman had done. That close up of the face is unreal in how lifelike it looks. Well done!

Looks a bit better than the most recent one I've seen posted from stxranchman grin

That's awesome! If I ever shoot one, I'm gonna have the taxidermist dye it black. wink
