    For sure, and it was on a normal open cattle farm, so they come and go as they like, so really very very good luck!

    NamHunter, are you sure the horns won't go into the book as deformed since that long horns is a bit off centre and that made the bull use only his one horn instead when breaking branches ? Just goes to show you how those horns can grow when they don't overuse them hey.

    nope not deformed, its already in the book registered, he probably hurt his horn when he was young, thus it bending back a bit more, as far as n know alot of the top 10 trophies has one long long horn and one short, look at the kudu taken this year, one horn 72 1/2" other one mid to early 60", with the long hornest horn bending back.
    and why is it abnormal, its naturally developed so they (RW) measure the longest horn bent or not.

    Photos of trophy animals are deceptive, but this look like a good job on a tremendous trophy!

    My son and I took two great eland this last trip.I was wondering if any one has some pic's of there mounts to share.I have some ideas on how I want to have then done but never hurts to look and get some more ideas.
    May do a double ped. mount of the two eland together or do single ped. mounts and make it the start of our spiral slam mounts.
    Going to use relive taxidermist to do mounts and like the detail he puts in his eland.Just looking for idea on poses really.

    Thanks Billc

    Here's mine. Forgive the lighting and the worse cell phone pic. Photo doesn't do it justice, the light isn't as harsh as it appears, but you get the idea. I had to do a pedestal because my "trophy room" is in one part of my basement and the ceilings are 8'. I do like pedestal mounts though.

    Well this isn't the greatest pic but hopefully you can get the idea. If you can imagine where my son's left leg is, there is a flat spot on what would be the eland's right shoulder working back to the rib case. This is what will be in contact with the wall. So it's a bit of a profile mount with the head turning towards you from the wall. I like these mounts as you don't have this gargantuan animal sticking out of the wall at you, which is handy if you don't have a huge trophy room.
