Antelope mounts are some of my favorite. The colors are beautiful and can fit in well without being over bearing. Just a beautiful animal. Here are a couple of mine mixed in with some deer. Was moving and decided this would be a good place to get all of them in one picture.
Man I love the antelope mounts!! I'm regretting not getting mine done this fall. It wasn't the biggest buck, but it sure had a pretty cape. I've got a handful of Wyoming points and when I burn those, I plan getting one done. It will just give me time to make a walnut pedestal like Randy's.
I like my floor pedestal as well, but looking back I think he would have looked better elevated on the wall, but I always want to be able to pivot him as the room requires it and be able to take a look at him from behind which is impossible on the wall. things to ponder for sure.
My favorite is either wall or base pedestal mounts. They show off a little more of antelopes shoulder and put a little more life into a mount than a regular form that is flat against the wall. Do a search for taxidermy supply catalogs and you'll find what forms are available with different poses. They usually have photos showing forms and antelope mounted on those forms. If you plan on a pedestal mount make sure to keep plenty of back, belly, and shoulder on the cape. I usually tube the legs so there aren't any cuts on the legs with plenty of leg left on the cape. My cut is about 3/4 the way back towards the hind quarters around the back/belly. If you ask any taxidermist they would prefer too much cape than too little!
I generally wait until I harvest to pick a form so I can show case the bucks best features. Bucks with super long prongs I may mount on a form with a lot more turn. Super tall bucks I may have a straighter pose. A good taxidermist can also alter a form to get the exact pose you are looking for.
