I really like the total mount setup. Good artistic taxidermy.

Looks good.
Nothing is better than a Weatherby, big bore magnum, or a Colt.

Very nice mount. Were they a double ? Or from another time. Or just liked the mount?
Either way very nice.

Great looking pheasant mount. With the axe stationed on the wall, I'm thinking this is a temporary location just for the picture. Love the double.

Thanks everyone.  Yes I am lucky to have a good taxidermist and friend that lives about a mile down the road.


Yes it was a double. Both dogs were on point about 15 feet apart looking in different locations. I came in from the side and the first bird went up in front of Rizzie and over her, I shot and down it came, looked and Joey hadn't move a hair. Started to turn and up went the second bird went in the opposite direction of the first one, missed the first shot but got it on the second..

As for the axe, it is a hand made axe my grandpa gave to me, when I was very young. That is just where it is hanging, but I guess I have to move it now. Or maybe not..

Nice looking mount!  I'll have to agree that upland hunting is fun, specially if you are behind your own dog.  I've done it many times in South Dakota, behind my yellow lab Savannah.  Lots of fun.
