Bushbuck and Eland back from the taxidermist
I picked up my bushbuck and eland from the taxidermist last week and thought you all would like to see how well they turned out. The bushbuck is a real stud, 17 1/2" took him by spot and stalk at 33 yds. The eland had one of best looking capes I had ever seen. Enjoy

Drenalin, they are very good mounts. You should hug your taxidermist first and then the skinner. Beautiful.

Both a very impressive, the eland has a dark bridge between the eyes and above the nose nostrils. Both the mounts are sure to be center pieces in your house!
Is it a Bushbuck or nyala?

That is one heck of a bushbuck, congradulationsI have walked in the tracks of the elephant, heard the lion roar and met the buffalo on his terms. I shall never be the same.

If you don't mind my asking, where did you get that bushbuck?

Both your Eland and Bushbuck a excellent Trophies, but the taxidermy work is outstanding.
You probably should give your taxi a plug here on this site.
Congrats on your results and some fine mounts to enjoy looking at.

Magnificent trophy's. Congradulations on two very nice bow shot animals. The detail in that Eland mount is fantastic, you should be very happy with your Taxidermist. The Bushbuck, well like I have said many times, Thats the finest trophy for me with a bow, and that one is a beauty. Thanks for sharing.

Wow!!! What outstanding trophies... That Bushbuck is a monster and your Eland's cape is spectacular! I have been dreaming of a big bull Eland and hope to meet up with one in June. Thanks for sharing!

Croc River is one of the areas where I will look for Bushbuck this August. I hope to find his twin brother
