    For those who were asking awhile back, here are pics of a couple of mounts from last years safari.

    Christines Whitetail. Obviously not from last years safari but she wanted this unique agressive displaying mount and I like it enough that I just had to show it. It is a nice option especially when you already have several conventional mounts on the wall.

    Lovely bushbuck! I always look at the ears, since many tax. seems to have trouble getting them right. Yours seems perfect.
    Can i ask what taxidermist you used?

    Thanks, I used me. LOL

    Ear color is definitely one thing I have noticed off on alot of African mounts. This guy is far from perfect but I do like how he turned out, as always after scrutinizing live reference against my mount I noticed a few small things that will make the next one even better.

    Does anyone have any experience with metallic mounts? Copper, bronze, nickel?

    I am looking for something different for skull mounts.

    Thanks!

    There was a thread on here a little bit ago about different colored skull mounts someone was doing and they were getting opinions. I can't seem to find it. Maybe someone else can post the link.
