    Right about now, my greatest regret from my May Safari is not having the larger of two Baboons done in a full body mount.

    What was I thinking?? :A Blink:

    Tarbe, I know what you mean about the baboons! I checked out your skulls at relive. That one had a weird dental anomaly. I am getting both of my Tootabi baboons full body mounted!

    If they arnt done well I think they look terrible as a full or shoulder mount .
    I really wanted to shoot one in Namibia this year but as they were free my ph wasnt really interested in getting me one .
    But my wife said it will be the first animal we hunt next time as they gave her the creeps on the side of the roads .
    Good girl !!!!

    Skull mount is the only way I want to have a baboon trophy done if I ever shoot one.

    My daughter-in-law is not a hunter, but likes looking at the animals we have mounted. She and my son visited over the Thanksgiving holiday and she brought along a cap that she had knitted for my baboon. I'm not a fan of dressing up mounts or of putting them in ridiculous poses, but I guess we can bend the rules for a few days each Christmas to display her gift.

    I have mine in a rather benign but threatening position, mouth closed and have him looking out the window next to the front door. That way when salespeople or religious zealots come to the door, I just crack it a little, look to my left and yell "BOBO, get away from that window. Honey, put him back in his cage"! That usually keeps me from having to explain why I'm not interested in what they're selling.

    I prefer them and vervet monkeys as scull mounts. Easy enough to do it yourself as well if you live this side.

    The last photo for scale. The difference between a big male vervet and big baboon.

    I would love to know more details about your trip, including tactics and distances and set-ups.

    BenKK--I spent a month in SA with my outfitter. I paid for 10 days but hunted about 20-25 days. Some of them were just in the only blind on the place(about 30,000 acers and no internal fences) to shoot baboons/monkeys as a kind of pest control. There were oranges pilled in front of it due to the drought. I was maybe 30-40 yards away from the oranges. I would shoot monkeys with the PH's suppressed 22RF and the baboons with my 257Weatherby. Sometimes they would walk/run by the blind so close I could have reached out and hit them on the head. I was able to shoot one or two. as it ran up the hill behind me after shooting one on the oranges. My PH used my rifle to shoot 2 on a hill at long range. We had fun.
    I was also able to shoot a Yellow Mongoose which has made a neat mount.
    I brought home 4 Baboon skulls, 2 Monkey skulls and the Mongoose skull.
    I got some with long teeth but am having the large, old, gray-back male done in a full mount.

    I also shot a number of other animals. We went out at night to shoot young Kudu and Impala for meat for the crew and the outfitters/PH families as well as for me to eat. I ate with the family for most of the trip. This was my 2nd trip with them. The 1st one my daughter and I hunted 11 days.
    I also shot for myself-Black Wildebeest, a WIDE Kudu to go with my deep curl one from the 1st trip, an Eland they saved from my 1st trip for me that we were unable to shoot then, Zebra, Common Springbok, black and white springbok, Bushbuck, Nyala, Duiker, warthog(brought the skull home), Genia fowl(for feathers) and Steenbok. I do not think I missed any.

    Strangely I did not see a Porcupine, Black Backed Jackal or Bat eared Fox which I wanted to get this trip for mounting and or flat skins.

    A few more photos
    This was in the Eastern Cape. About 1.75 hour drive northwest of Port Elizabeth. Great place, great hunting, huge properties, great people. The name is Iliwa Safaris. Family owned land for 5 generations. Father/son land owner/outfitter/PH with spot and stalk hunting and they will hunt all day long.
