    Yep, thats how they are shipped or moved.
    The cape buff would be no problem. We delivered a lifesize white rhino from Ohio to Florida with out any problems at all. It does take some pre-planning when you are packing the truck. Along with the rhino we had 15 other lifesize mounts to fit in the truck & trailer. Man, that was a whole day loading and bracing all the mounts and bases !! LOL

    I could only find these two pics of us actually loading & packing the truck. You can see the rhino up inside the truck. It would not fit in the trailer so we had to put it up inside the truck, which was a job. As you can see we hadn't loaded the trailer yet. I know it might look like a cluster but there was alot of mounts to deliver to this client. And with all the bracing & packing, everything made it to Florida in great shape with no damages or problems. Now getting the rhino into the clients trophy room is another story !! LOL
    Brickburn, I hope I took it right that you wanted pics of us moving the rhino or did you want actual pics of the rhino mount ? If so I can post them for you.

    Moving mounts is what I was looking at in this thread.
    Reedbuck, Sable, Baboon, Oryx?, W Rhino.

    I have to say that Muley was worth mounting...


    Heath, feel free to start a thread with all your African work.. I liked to see good work.

    Brickburn,
    There is of course the white rhino in this picture along with a sable, baboon, warthog, desert sheep shoulder mount, #4 SCI desert sheep lifesize, zebra, 230" whitetail and the current World Record SCI Estate Desert Mule Deer.
    I will dig up some more pics including the World Record Mule Deer which I was lucky enough to be on the hunting trip when my client harvested it and I harvested a 103" Coues Deer .
