    My taxidermist gave me a call the other day to tell me that my warthog was done. It's funny that it's the one I chose to mount first as I had no intention of shooting one. Then after I did take one, I had no intention of mounting it...just wanted a Euro!

    Anyway, I'm very happy with the result. Mount was done at Orion Taxidermy here in Sask.

    Nice pig.

    Like the eyes. It is like you can tell that it is trying to see something and can't.

    You will probably find that most of your non-hunting friends will be more fascinated by your warthog than anything else you've shot...even if they are monster record book animals! That has been my experience.

    One down, four to go....at the rate of about one per year! Lol. To get to ten, I'll have to get back to Africa somehow!

    Saw lots of them with broken tusks. This guy isn't huge, but I agree with you on the nice symmetry. Thanks.
