    I had the back skin of my waterbuck tanned for $100 since the white circle looked pretty cool. Unfortunately, it is still at the taxidermist. I think it will be a unique piece added to the trophy room collection. Remember this, everything is in the eye of the beholder. I love the waterbuck and wanted the backskinned tanned as reminder of my days in Africa.

    I also really like the waterbuck. I had the backskin of my gemsbuck tanned, but should have done the waterbuck. Neat animals.

    I also tanned my waterbuck back skin, and it looks really nice. I wasnt expecting it to look so good, because of its oily nature, but it is very nice. I have it next to my bed and its the first thing i put my feet on in the morning when i wake up.
