Hanging the deer head in the log cabin


Okay, the delays are over. I had to give in after saying "let me think about it" twenty times in answer to Greg's question "can I hang my deer head here?" I have to admit, seeing how proud he was to hang this in our log cabin and the care he took to position it over the dining area - made me smile. But now as I'm eating dinner...I know that deer is watching me.....!

I'm like you, I probably would have stalled my hubby as well. Although the deer head is perfect for the log cabin.

Maybe you need to tell him only one; otherwise the cabin may fill up with more heads!

Looks good he could be looking over you at night : )
Funny Jen I'll come cook for you in that new log home you are going to win : )

As long as you're not having venison stew....

I had to promise the wife 1) not to mount anything with less than 10-points. 2) I would only hang a mount in the cabin up north (the Bolt Hole) or in the basement of the Aerie.

Best I've done so far are two, very nice 8-pointers.

Nice rack!
I do prefer them mounted without the mounting board behind them tho.
We may be looking at an elk before to long in our house, or one looking at us. :o

Deer watching you eat, not bad. I know I have told you about our bobcat Bob, but did I tell you he sits in the bathroom? Yeah, it would be much better to have him watch me eat!

Still love the cabin!!

The deer head looks great there. I definitely wouldn't sit with my back to it while eating...ha.

I actually like it, although we do not have any in our log house and I am glad! Maybe I need to rethink it through?

Bobbi - I'm trying to tell him one is definitely enough - but he's having visions of a 10 pointer in his head - lol!

Chris - I swear its eyes follow me around the room! (I told Jen I'd bring wine & desert)

Joated - Wish I would've thought of the 10 pointer provision!

Jen - too bad I met him after he shot this - I don't care for the board either.

Brandi - really?! A bobcat in the bathroom?!! I cannot let my husband know about this...

Sandy - I'm keeping an eye out - lol!

Reliv - Greg says its the "rule" about hanging a deer head in a cabin - I'm not so sure about that...

I don't have any deer heads hanging, but we do have mounted birds and antlers in our lodge room. Let me know how you and your family like the cake.
