    I have just returned back to the UK after my first African Bowhunt.I was very lucky as the first shot at a African animal was a clean kill on a Bushpig during a morning hunt.I have decided to have it mounted but am not shaw on a shoulder mount or a pedestal wall mount.Has anyone got any photos of a Bushpig I could see mounted in this way to help me decide.

    Thank you

    Uk deer,
    If anyone of the two , I think the shoulder mount will be better. Dont know if the pedistal mount will work , because of the short neck of the pig and that fact that the animal will have to look to the side. I posted a picture under my gallery of a shoulder mount of a bushpig. Have you thought of a full mount?

    Thank you Marius
    I'm afraid a full mount is out of the question.I can see what you mean about the short neck,that is probably why I cannot find any images of a pedestal mount.
