Thanks Jerome.
Here's an example of a Euro mount for you. (Was a young Giraffe though). We actually do quite a lot of Euro mounts with Giraffe skulls for our clients. I would say 70% of those who have the cape made into a shoulder mount get a Euro Mount done with their skull as well.

Welcome to AH @Silke Bean.

Can you share any other examples of giraffe items your taxidermy shop makes?

Anyone wall mount one? Id really like to do this over a set of stairs and have it come more eye level on second level.

This is how I had my giraffe mounted.

Thanks for this! I am thinking very seriously of braving the wrath of my wife and going for a giraffe in June.

Go for it, they are fun to hunt. And seeing one fall is something else.

I would definitely try for one if you can, I didn't get to see mine fall. Going have to fix that in future.

I bought some bullets from Rimshot and he is good to trade with!
Greetings all! I've been a hunter for 50 years, but only now planning a trip to Africa. I was fortunate and successfully bid on a couple hunts for plains game in SA later this year and next. Also a rare Native Texas (5th generation) and USMC Vet. Hunt safe y'all!

I am looking for a Safari Express. Was yours made in New Haven or South Carolina? Any other details you can give me? I am very motivated to buy.
