    My first African trophy was a Lesser Kudu bull hunted in the Awash Desert in eastern Ethiopia in 1986. Unfortunately I entrusted a number of trophies to the government owned "Taxidermy Cooperative" for safe-keeping and the Lesser Kudu cape skin was rendered un-mountable by insect damage.

    I have the skull and horns which would make a lovely European style mount, but if I could source a cape at a reasonable price, I'd like to shoulder mount it.
    If anyone has a Lesser Kudu cape that they are not going to mount, please get in touch.
    I have learned that salted & dried skins, OR TANNED BUT UN-MOUNTED skins do not last forever,
    so if willing to sell, or propose some sort of swap let me know.
    I would want it shipped to Washington state, so it would be easier if it were already in the USA. But other locations might be workable if it is properly documented.
    THANKS.

    I should add that I am not a taxidermist trying to source for a customer, or looking to buy and resell, it is for my own use and hopefully seeing that my first African trophy find it's place of honor on the wall!
