My wife had watched a piebald for a few years and last year she decided to take it out of the heard.  She asked a buddy of mine, who does Taxidermy work if he would do a full mount.  As time went on her imagination got bigger and bigger until it was no longer just a full body mount but instead, a full nature scene.  

We picked it up this past Saturday on our way back home from an indoor field hockey tournament,  I will say, it came out better then expected and she is extremely happy with it.

The third pic is the deer a week before she shot it.  It isn't the biggest deer she has ever gotten but piebalds never are and she liked the markings.  We have a few more on the property but all seem to be does.  Also had a all white a many years back

Thanks again Earl

It looks like it was walking through your family room at one point.

Each one of us here today will at one time in our lives look upon a loved one who is in need and ask the same question: We are willing to help, Lord, but what, if anything, is needed? For it is true we can seldom help those closest to us. Either we don't know what part of ourselves to give or, more often than not, the part we have to give is not wanted. And so it is those we live with and should know who elude us. But we can still love them - we can love completely without complete understanding.

very nice D the wife should be proud. I have a half body mount jumpin out of the wall, also a piebald. did your wife's have a raised nose like a goat does? when I seen the one I have on the wall it was 300 yds across a clear cut and I really thought it was a goat till icame into bow distance. ps I had the taxidermist remove that feature.

no, it's nose was pretty much like a normal deer.  The biggest challenge was his leg length and his barrel body.  The form needed lots of mods to get the hide to fit nicely.

   WOW " D"

  That is a very nice story that you told here and a beautiful job of getting the full body piebald mounted. I am not going to ask you if you guys like Venison because I already know that answer to that question. Congratulations to your wife on her hunting skills.

I used to take my wife hunting with me many years ago but she never shot a deer. On the other hand I shot a lot of Bucks everything from 8 point Bucks down to Spike Bucks but for some reason I never had gotten a deer head mount it really never interested me , there is nothing wrong with getting deer mounted it just is not something that I did.. We always butchered our own deer and made our own bologna's, pepper sticks, and ground our meat. When we were butchering venison we would de-bone every thing. We did not freeze bones, or cook bones because we did not eat bones.
