Elk Mount

Aug 15, 2009 by Jared Smith

Apparently my recent posts about David Archuleta and ‘pretty’ satellites have scored quite low on the manliness scale, so here’s something that should more than account for this. I got my elk mount back yesterday. The first word out of everyone’s mouth so far has been, “WOW!” It is massive! Kyle Taylor of Rocky Mountain Treasures in Menan, Idaho did an excellent job on the taxidermy work.

The problem has been deciding on a place to put it. Our place is not what you’d call spacious and putting the front 1/3 of a 1,000 pound elk that is 6 feet tall, 4 feet wide, and protrudes from the wall over 4 feet into our house isn’t an easy task. It wouldn’t come close to going down the stairs, so we opted for a place in the front room… for now. I’m pretty sure Mary is mortified of it, but she’s very supportive about putting it “wherever”.

  3. That’s pretty impressive Jared – but that’s even more impressive on Marys part! ;) I guess I need to take the long walk to your house and see this thing for myself – too cool!
