Had cape and antlers shipped from Canada. Can’t remember what that cost. $1,000ish? Taxidermist charged $1,000 to mount including removable antlers. It’s currently in storage. Hopefully I’ll have it back on the wall soon as I buy a new house.

They sure do surprise you with their size. Even the smaller ones take up a few inches of space!

anybody have an idea how far they stick out from the wall?
Shoulder mount, European mount, just skull capped antlers? My shoulder mount (58” spread), sticks off the wall about 5’. It’s hard to really get a good idea of how large it is until you’re standing beside it on the floor, it’s a huge mount.

Thanks, that's exactly what I was looking for. I was thinking shoulder mount. If I'm fortunate enough, a moose mount will look a little out of place in my basement HAHA!

Anyone do a skull mount? On the slim chance I ever actually harvest a moose my wife says wall space is too precious for a shoulder mount.

I have three moose Euro mounts. I do like the looks of them. The only one that is actually hung up is at my mom’s house a couple thousand miles away.

I wish I would have known about Euro mounts when I got my first moose. A Euro mount of it would have likely prevented my friend from mistaking its antlers for a 28” forkhorn muley 😗

You need a new wife then! Haha joking but really
She hand quilts so as long as I keep her up to her ears in fabric she only rolls her eyes when I blow past the budget. But it also means shared wall space and moose are massive.

What a unique trophy. I have never seen a photo of a moose with fronts like that. It looks like his mom might have been messing around with a Roosevelt Elk.
That’s exactly why I had him mounted those brow tines are different from anything I have ever seen. My taxidermist is 43 years in the biz said same thing.

Here’s the beginning of my Euro mount. Got this guy on 9/3 and he measures 50 1/2 inches. Pardon the boat... only thing I had I could cover the skull in while I was at work! Going to grab the peroxide Thursday when I get off work and finish scraping everything off.121876
