    Female Giraffe are some of the best hides for what your thinking of. Virtually no scars or fight damage like bulls. You may get a leopard claw scar but usually they won't tackle anything Like a giraffe even a small female. Most lions won't ether for fear of getting kicked and a broken jaw, sure death. Females make the best for hair on skin for cases and other things.

    rifle bags look very good
    also ammo bags, like an over the shoulder satchel, and a backpack, all with hair on look very nice

    I have taken 3 big giraffe bulls in Africa. I did neck/head mounts with 2 of them, and have the flat skins and leg bones as well. The rugs are beautiful, but they do take up a lot of room and they don't exactly lay as flat as you may expect, as they have pretty big wrinkles in them.

    I have very low ceilings and was considering something like this:

    Leaves room under it for additional mounts.

    What if the neck swooped down a little like it was peering down at something?
     
    Jeffrey Masters and Ridgewalker like this.
