    Looks great. That horse crippler type cactus on the front of the base brings back a great memory.
    Long story short, I went to shoot at an aoudad my younger brother put a bad hit on. I quickly sat down to get a good rest for a 300 yd shot on a moving target. Forgot for a split second I wasn't in PA, guess what I spent the next half hour pulling out of my flank??
    God I love Texas
    I'm planning on a pedestal aoudad mount and I'll defiantly have a cactus in the habitat.

    Thank you sir. Though the oryx has short horns he certainly knows how to use them. Isn't there something about it not being the size of ones horn but how it's utilized :LOL::LOL::LOL:

    You got me gizmo!
    How's your quail taxidermy going? Next time I make it there quail hunting, a male and female in a glass box would be neat.
    Best
