we need to get an Osceola mounted for my wife next. she has killed several, just not mounted one yet.

hope you enjoy the pics. they are very special to me and have some great stories behind each one. I am reminded every time I look at them. I have been blessed to be able to chase the great creatures

I really don't have a lot of room for them!

I want a goulds so bad. we were talking about going and I booked a hunt but cancelled due to my wife just finishing school and not knowing a schedule or what she may end up doing. trust me, if I can find a slot to go..im gonna do all I can to get down there

thanks. the 2 easterns are 1.5 and the Osceola is a tad over 1.5. my rio was 1 3/8 and 1 1 5/16. we got lucky and found a few good ones along the way.

the pics don't seem to show the colors the same as the look in real life for some reason. not sure if its the lighting or my elementary photographer skills, but the don't look the same in the pics for some reason

Haha....no, I dont. Our living room looks like a small ga jungle. Had to put 2 in my "hunting" room. Maybe if I ever build a house I will spread em out. I'm just happy to have em!

Those are some great looking mounts, those Merriams IMO are the prettiest but they sure don't grow much for fighting equipment, all we have here is Merriams and Merriams crossed with ?

Great mounts especially the first one that has both birds. If I had that many turkey mounts I would have to build two additions to hold them all.
