This is a nice sized bison (North American buffalo). Mount features a sneak pose looking down and forward. It displays good hair length and a light coloring. This bison has nice sized horns with lengths being 15 6/8″ and 11 6/8″. The left horn has been broken at some point (prior to mounting) so is not as proportionate as we like to see. Good workmanship on the taxidermy and over all subject and condition earn this shoulder mount a rating of “Nice”. Also we took into account that it has minor ear damage on one side, which is not noticeable until one is up close.
This mount looks best when hung above eye level to have a good view of the face. The right horn has a base measurement of 6 7/8″ while the left is slightly larger at 7 0/8″ (inches). The distance between the tips is 15 5/8″ with a maximum width of 22 4/8″. Overall it measures 34″ deep (from wall to nose) x 23″ wide x 43″ high (or tall). Mount hangs from a single, well secured screw.
