    I take it that is a bushbuck, steenbok and mountain reedbuck? I like the way the mounts are all turned and positioned, for me the grass is a little to high...just personal taste.

    Thanks for posting!

    Sorry, I was in a hurry. They are bushbuck, common duiker and steenbok.

    Thanks, I'm feeling a little dumb right now, but I'm awefully tired, yes I can see it now that is definitely a common duiker.

    Great looking mounts. The taxidermy looks first rate.
    I have to agree about the height of the grass but I really like the addition of the thorns, nice touch.

    Very nice Upton! I agree with everyone else though about the grass. Hides that beautiful bushbuck.
