The #17 polar bear has no fangs. It looks like the butcher that stuffed him used an old set of human dentures.

What exactly is wrong with #29 & #30? They actually look fine to me. All the others appear very,very old
before modern day forms were invented. They are however a very sad interpretation of nature.

I couldn't stop laughing. But if these mounts aren't practical jokes on others, I feel sorry for whoever ordered and possibly ended up paying for these creations.

You almost have to feel sorry for the animals. Why should they be shot just to end up looking like a piece of crap?

If there was any of these animal manifestation that i would want to meet in the woods it would have to be the smileing man faced mountain lion. He's got quite a smile.

Galen100 and others who are disgusted and sickened by these admittedly terrible examples of taxidermy.... ummmm! Those animal hides were not left to rot in the dirt. Someone wanted to preserve them and their efforts went wrong for one reason or another. Your comments suggest you believe someone intentionally did the deed as some kind of a nasty joke. Clearly, someone's hopes and good intentions went wrong but that is normally described as an accident. You seem pretty upset where the rest of us managed a good laugh over what went wrong. Are we callous in so doing? I prefer to think we have the perfect coping mechanism in being able to laugh about such things. I am sorry to hear that you are able to do the same as it suggests you are unhappy in the extreme about more serious problems occurring every day.

to be honest, these are so poorly done that they are mostly un-recognizable as to what they were when alive. I hate shoddy workmanship and would not pay for anything of this nature even if sued for it!! much of this is totally sickening.

It's unfortunate that the taxidermists were incompetent, but I found that I couldn't stop laughing. I hope to see more of these in the future.

After the first five pictures I stopped looking. I find nothing funny or entertaining in shoddy craftsmanship or in the lack of respect for the animals. I am actually surprised and discussed that the editors of a national sports magazine would waste the space or the time presenting such a farce. My respect for Outdoor Life Magazine has taken a serious hit!

#17 isn't taxidermy. That is Barney dressed up like a polar bear. Silly Barney.

#6 Pet Cemetery again??

#11 Glad I didn't live 2 million years ago.

#16 I'd put that one above my bar. I think it has a political message.

I would rather have the OWL on the Clash of the Titans at least he looked real. If I went to collect my mount and it looked like any of these it wouldn't be going home with me.

I had a notion that I posted earlier regarding these terrible mounts. How about telling us which well know person reminds you of one or more of these critters. I have claimed the cougar for Charlie Sheen and presented my reasons. Come on you guys, let's give these unfortunate creations a namesake.

I've seen a few of these before and some others just as bad. I don't know about all of them, but a number of them are by "local labor" overseas. They get some basic training and then are told to go do it. The eyes are hard to get right and for a beginner taxidermist, well, mistakes will happen. It gets worse when the guy gets paid per job, vice per hour.

A political cartoonist or satirist could do great things with this assortment of mounts. Charlie Sheen has my vote for the cougar with the pink nose, eye shadow, self satisfied smirk and over sized head.

Some of these mounts are bad enough to be treasured heirlooms of the family. I would wager that they have sponsored more animated conversations and laughs then would be voiced over quality taxidermy mounts. A great horned owl with crossed eyes and a stance that suggests there is a stick up his behind still holds a spot of honor at my father's trophy room. Why? Because we laugh every time we recall my mother presented it to him as a gift.
The old taxidermist she had chosen did not have much English nor, as it turned out, did he have much in the way of skill at his craft. His prices were cheap but the look on my father's face was 'priceless'.
That goofy old owl sits up on a high cupboard above beautifully mounted sheep, antelope, elk, caribou, bear, buffalo and whitetails. Perhaps there is message here that someone of a philosophical mind could voice?
