    Got my skulls and dip and pack back home today. Can't wait to get these capes tanned and start mounting them up!

    Congrats! It is an exciting day for sure!

    A couple of those skulls didn't fare too well...I'm was thinking of keeping my skulls as Euro mounts next year. That worries me a bit. That being said, blesbok are not the flashiest of animals over there, but I think they make a badass Euro!

    Since they are in your hands now, I am guessing all of the worry/stress is over. I can imagine all of the what ifs? that you have been thinking about for many months!

    I was only supposed to get skull caps for mounting so they actually went to more trouble than needed

    Glad to see you have them home. Share some pictures after you get them mounted up to.
