    MAdcox, with three future hunters in the mix it is time to start planning, saving and or whatever else might be necessary to bring their desires to fruition. Looking for a sugar daddy isn't an option.:rolleyes::rolleyes:

    Actually just got off the phone with a electrician to move all the TV and satellite stuff to the other side of the room because the Kudu is getting the center of the fireplace!

    Kudu is a whopper and great looking. As to shrinkage? I don't know for sure, its sometimes used as a reason why an animal isn't as big as we remember or were told it was. I don't believe it would shrink 2 inches in a couple of years unless it spent a long time in the pot and then left out in the sun the whole time after. I have 3 kudu heads and none have shrunk at all, the oldest being taken in 1990. Just my opinion, either way that is a beauty.

    Thank you. It’s another great reason not to have a tape in camp. I never really cared how many inches he was. I just loved the wide V and was pumped about the start of that 3rd curl plus the mass. He is exactly what I hoped for all those years of studying Kudu pictures and mounts.

    It looks like you built the fireplace for that kudu. Even down to matching the colors!

    I always thought it was built for a big bull elk, but the Africa bug bit before I got one big enough.
    I was a little afraid he would blend in too much but now that he is up I agree with you. Perfect.
