    Default Porcupine mount

    I was lucky enough to encounter and take an African porcupine with my bow on my last trip hunting with Limcroma Safaris. I finally got the mount back... It's definately the most unusual mount that I have and probably my new favorite.... Some asked to post pics when I got it, so here they are.....

    Interesting mount. Talented taxidermist to get that done safely.

    Scary to have all those pointy barbs at my eye level though.

    Great mount and hope to have one this year...

    Last year in South Africa we saw about 13 porcupines and shot one and it blew quills every where.

    Need a smaller rifle this year and looking to use the PH's 22 mag.
