Very cool mount
That is cool.
That is so cool, now I want one!
We don't have any of those in the desert so I guess I have to plan a trip next summer.
I wish I could swing it, it looks like an absolute blast.
Between work getting in the way of my fun and trying to finish the deck on my boat here summers going to be over quick. The closest I get to Alabama during travel is Orlando, so it would be tough without some planning.
How big was that southern and how much something like run roughly?
Very cool mount, never thought about mounting a ray but I like this one
The mount looks great with very nice detail.
I had a local guy do a skin mount on the 140# i shot and that was a $700 mistake. I will have a replica done of it in a couple years.
Are there certain kinds of Rays that are preferable to have mounted? Or is it just trying to get a big one?
Based on all the pics it looks like you guys shoot a bunch of different ones.
Next you have southern stingrays. They are big perfect circles with just a little point at the nose. These get huge with big ones over 100 lbs and really big ones pushing 130-150 lbs.
Atlantic rays are similar to southern but have a big pointed nose but only top out at 20-25 lbs
The rarest of them is the butterfly rays another bottom dweller that's kinda looks more like a triangle. Not sure on the sizes of these but most pictures I've seen are small ones but I have heard of a few huge ones caught rod and reel.
My prices are $17 per inch for replicas which I do suggest on stingrays of any kind. You are about dead on with the different rays but most atlantic rays do not get over 10 pounds. The butterfly rays are kind of a mystery because there has been some 100 pounders shot but the majority are around 30 pounds almost every time. These 4 are the main species we have in the gulf that are legal to shoot. Does anyone else shoot different kinds of rays than these in other parts of the country?
We shot some 15 - 20lb Atlantic's last year on our trip and a 25lb Atlantic won the Atlantic division at the arc stingray tournament this year. That's my only basis on there size
Awsome mount and pics thanks
very sharp mount!
That is awsome.
