    My taxidermist (jerrys taxidermy in pa) has finally started my giraffe from my 2017 safari with pawprints. Hes had to custom make the bottom half of the form and cut to adjust the head to get a slight turn as requested. Still has a scenery base to do. And final touch up. I better get the hardwood floor in on my addition asap!

    Ok now I’ve seen a mount that might entice me to take one could never figure how to get one to fit that still looked good. Very nice trophy you have there a mature dark bull.
    Thank you for sharing
