    So... I am going on my own personal spotted hyena hunt in two weeks and was wondering what you all think would be a good mount:

    1. Full Mount in the walk with a vervet monkey hanging in it's mouth
    2. Full Mount in the walk with a guinea fowl in it's mouth
    3. Full Mount in the walk with a bone of some sort in it's mouth

    or any other ideas are welcome...

    I am leaning towards the monkey but cant decide.

    Full mount with mouth open in that leering grin that we often see. I had envisioned this for my own unsuccessful hyena hunt(s), with maybe him sticking his head out thru tall grass on a pedestal or some such, on the hunt. I would not have a critter in its mouth were it me.

    I agree, I would not have anything in its mouth either. I would do a full mount with a good view of the teeth.

    If I do get mine this year, it will just be a skull with open mouth which will be placed in my library.

    Africa books section :E Big Grin:

    Unfortunately I don´t have the space for a full mount.

    I happen to have the perfect place to "dispose" of that nasty Hyena hide for you. ;)

    I would gladly donate that nasty hide to you if it can be done.

    Not sure if its possible either and I would love to have it but Im sure there would be plenty who would pay for a hide like that. Might be able to recoup some of your trophy shipping costs with that one.
