My BONGO mount
I just got my bongo 2 days ago and I want to share the pictures with you.
Yes it is a pedestal mount.... Why? I always dreamed to get it mount this way, I saw one like this loooong ago... I wanted it this way.
I am leaving for Tanzania next week and I will be back in December !! so all the best for your next hunts.
I also have a new web site: Welcome - Hunters Guide Safaris
Still under construction but it will be okay soon.
Have a look at my new video channel on You tube: HUNTERSGUIDESAFARIS - YouTube

Christophe, first good luck on the upcoming trip/trips. Be safe.
Second I love that mount. I am looking for something to do my gemsbok. Though I cant do the whole rock base, I may do some form of stone top after looking at this. Very nice!!"Ignorance is curable, stupid is forever."

What a great way to get those classic stripes into the picture, as it were.
Colours of the base look familiar to some video footage of your hunts. Nice work.
Congratulations and thanks.
Good luck in TZ. Stay safe.Practice whispering before you leave for Africa!
A Legend in my own mind!

Vibrant mount! Love the orange coat, what a special animal! Certainly a species that deserves to be showcased in a special mount...

All the best for your hunting season in Tanzania, already looking forward to your pictures and videos! Take care!

Beautiful. Looks to me like you have a nice spot for a red flanked duiker on the rock at the base!The journey is the reward.

Thank you all.
You know my passion about bongo.... I think it is a good mount, I am quite happy with this one.
I see my trophies and my family when I am at home..... some weeks in a year.... this is the way of a PH life...

We met in Kocho/Mbari while you were hunting Jimmy/Teresa. I enjoyed your company and your positive hunting attitude, hope to hunt with you soon. The Bongo is truly one of Africas most exceptional trophies. Looks fantastic, looking forward to seeing mine soon.
