Interesting.

The part about human bones makes me wonder-

When did taxidermists stop using bones in taxidermy?

Skull plates, those I have seen, but bones otherwise?

I have an old deer head from 2 generations previous to me (grandfather’s friend) that started to fall apart, and it was wire and sawdust inside.

Just interested to know when/if they used the skeleton to build the mounts?

That’s an amazing mount.

Human bone is sacred.

I don't know what the right answer is on this question.

The weak and feeble minded can't comprehend nature so they cover it up and stick their head in the sand. What's not to love about that mount? Depicts life.

"Peace is that brief glorious moment in history when everybody stands around reloading" - Thomas Jefferson

Every morning the Zebra wakes up knowing it must outrun the fastest Lion if it wants to stay alive. Every morning the Lion wakes up knowing it must outrun the slowest Zebra or it will starve. It makes no difference if you are a Zebra or a Lion; when the Sun comes up in Africa, you must wake up running......

"If you're being chased by a Lion, you don't have to be faster than the Lion, you just have to be faster than the person next to you."

Not sure what the legalities are but plan on checking it out. Just been too busy. I was thinking that after I'm dead, my femurs are of no further use to me, but would make good knife handles. So I thought about leaving custom knives with my bone handles to my best friends so that at least part of me could still go hunting. Is that too weird? Not even sure if it's legal and wouldn't want to get anyone in trouble. My form of immortality.
