Success Lagopus!!!on page 250 of my book it state's ...Thirty -four pointer with irregular horn's shot near little gull river ,September 1905.

On page 245 he (Millais ) tell's the tale...

"And he swung round to gallop across the open space about ten yard's broad.As he did so I fired and broke his back,giving a second shot as he tried to recover.This stag carried a beautiful set of antler's with thirty -four point's,and was by far the best I secured in 1905.

The bay's were exceptionally fine and the beam very long(46 inche's )and very broad in the centre.

What made it to me a fine trophy was it's wild nature,as it had extra point's sticking out of the main beam just above the bay's.

The whole head seemed to carry a little forest of antler's all the way up to the horns,making it very attractive.

Like so many caribou head's ,it had ,however only one good brow;the other though long ,being of the scraggy order."


If you would like to have the book let me know if I can hunt one up for you.

Newf, I have sent you a PM. Thanks for the research.

Mike, that is an impressive trophy room. I have found that wives and taxidermy don't mix well; where do you keep yours? Lagopus.....

Mike, I love your room, both the trophies and your book collection. There's not so much to show with mine -- longish and narrow walkout lower level that's also my workout room.

A few pics of my Den/Man Room. Look around at antique stores and on Craigslist and you can find some good buys on antique/rustic furniture to use in the room.

The book case was a converted from a gun cabinet I built in high school wood shop class. And of course any respectable man would have a proper bird dog (Brittany) in his man room.







The desk was is an antgue mahogany knee hole desk I picked up for $50 and refinished. The antique trunk came across the pond from England. I use it to store all my 20ga ammo.



Cabinet is an old armoire I picked up for $75 that I converted to ammo/gun stuff storage with room for my humidor on the tight side.


The gobbler was killed by my son when he was 7 y/o. He shot it at 15 yards with a L.C. Smith .410! It rests on top of my safe with the two quail.

Emily just calls mine the "dead animal room". I resent that because there are a number of nice fish mounts on the wall in addition to the ducks, deer heads, and turkey fans...Geo

Pre13, I can┤t believe that is your dog, it is the absolute spit of my Brittany !!!, Lagopus, when I had the house built 10 years ago in the "cortijo" style I deliberately had one seperate building made for me. As you say, wives and taxidermy don┤t usually go together. Problem is I┤m running out of space smile Gunflint, that looks very nice. I┤d like a few bird mounts here as well but as I said...space ? best

Thanks for the great advice and examples. So far, I've order some nice prints (of bird dogs and upland hunting scenes), vintage duck decoys, and some reproduction tin signs. I am planning on adding some nice mounts, a wallhanger, and some other stuff.

Thanks again and feel free to add more. Always looking for more inspiration.
