    Default trophies came back today finally

    Got the skulls, capes and backskins home from my 2011 namibia trip today. Now starts another waiting time for the taxidermist to get them all done.

    Looks great, I especially like the Springbok on the right.
    The journey is the reward.

    Would love to go on another safari, and maybe if all goes well, I will go in october this season. Back to Namibia again for eland, hartebeest, mountain zebra, oryx and maybe a cheetah. But will have to see how much I can juggle financially.

    I am so pleased about my kudu, that was the whole reason I went on the safari to get a 60" kudu, didn´Ż┤t quite make 60", but close enough.

    Now I am looking forward to getting the stuff back from the taxidermist.

    Will get the the steenbuck and duiker full mounted, the duiker was 4,75" tall so also a great trophy.

    The rest will get shouldermounted. I think the Kudu will be a wall pedistal mount.

    cheers

    yes, I got it all done and shipped by Hunters pride i namibia.

    But I have found that someone has drilled 2 holes in both my wildebeest and impala in the horn in base area on the backside. Is that a bug test?

    cheers

    It is most likely a hole used to wire an identification tag to your horns so they do not get misplaced at the taxidermist.

    Or the holes might have been for the insect poison the normally use on skulls.

    yes I will definitely cherish the memories forever.
