    Default Gemsbok & Kudu back from Taxidermist

    Just picked up my Gemsbok and Kudu from the taxidermist last week and thought you all might like to take a gander at them. I posted my Bushbuck and Eland back in April to show how good they turned out, well the taxidermist didn't disappoint again because these two turned out great. I designed and built the pedestal myself, for a novice it didn't turn out half bad. Enjoy!

    Your taxidermist is a true artist. That kudu is stunning!!! And the oryx with the Africa map on it is pure genius!

    Great looking mounts. Just curious what was the length of your horns overall height of the trophy when on the pedestal, and the height of the pedestal.
    Sorry for all the questions I have a 38" Gemsbok I will be fitting in a basement and wanted to see how yours measured out.

    Beautiful! I love the pedestal mount and as someone else said, the map of Africa is a perfect compliment.
