    Default Cape Buffalo taxidermy

    this answer to this question may be obvious but as I am planning my dream trip I will go with the old belief that there is no such thing as a stupid question.

    I have noticed in the many pics of trophy buffs an extreme difference in the "countenance" of the buf's face if I may phrase it that way. Some have much more of the "you owe me money" look than others.

    My question is can this look. unique to each Buffalo be duplicated by the taxidermist and what if anything other than the trophy (good pics?) would I need to supply. Thanks.

    Or a good American taxidermist, haha.

    Big5er, to answer your question, yes a good taxidermist can duplicate the look you are looking for. And yes good pics are a must. But getting good,live pics of the actual buff you harvest might be tough though. Alot of facial expressions will change once you have your buff on the ground because of muscle relaxation. The taxidermist you choose to use should have lots of live reference pics that you & him/her can go through to find the look you are looking for.
    Good luck on the great hunt, I am jealous !!!!!!!!
