Taxidermy work and alternatives
As i'm leaving for another trip to Africa (this time a return to visit Louis and Spiral Horn Safaris) i'm thinking about taxidermy and associated costs. I am wondering and debating about not having many animals mounted. I don't dare say it aloud but that's what i'm considering.
I know i'll be after a Giraffe. I think i will do a flat skin of that as the shoulder mount on those suckers is expensive. If i shoot a monster impala (which Louis keeps tempting me with) then i will probably mount that as well. Other than those, i am strongly considering really nice pictures and possibly skull mounts or nothing.
It's not that i don't love having taxidermy in my house. My basement "man cave" is starting to fill up from previous trips and i just got word my buff is about to ship out of Zimbabwe. I'm just to that point where the money might be better applied to future trips, as i'm sure i'll be back.
Anyone else in this mindset or am i the black sheep?
