    G'day all,
    In October late last year I fulfilled a long term goal taking a great 13" free range bull tahr in New Zealand.

    I've now got the mount finished and on the wall, and thought I'd share some pics. ;)

    Thank you mate. It's a wall ped style form so is wall mounted.

    I took him with a T3 Superlite 7mm Rem Mag from 265yd uphill. Topped with a Z3 Swaro 4-12x50 ballistic turret it makes quite a good mountain rifle.

    It's a long story but it was my third tahr hunt in 9 years and due to poor weather and poor luck I had to leave behind two unrecoverable bulls on the first two hunts, but neither as good as this guy. So I was super happy to finally get him on the deck in the last hour of the last day of our recent hunt!

    Unfortunately my trophy room needs expansion so I really don't have room to do him justice at the moment.

    Cheers
    Tim

    Nice bull and mount. It's getting pretty crowded in that room!
