Got my hyena back today. Had him do some custom work to get the snarl and jaw set I was going for.

Absolutely fantastic !

Great to see a Spotted (or any) Hyena shoulder mount & that looks like a very nice job to .

I want the whole set of them but don't have the heart to cut my skins in half like that !

Very interesting. Had never seen a Hyena shoulder mount. Works well with the others.

Thanks guys. When I finished the hunt in Zim, I was short on funds and just had the hide tanned. I ended up trading some capes of other game towards the work four years after. I wasn't sure how it would turn out because shoulder mounts on carnivores aren't too common. We went back and forth on the ears and mouth. The ears aren't commonly like that, but I found a pic of a hyena fighting a wild dog pack and asked him to match that. Anyway, thanks guys. I was happy with it. I have always been attracted to the weird and obscure.

Turned out really well! As you said, not overly common, but I would imagine considerably less pricy than a full body mount. (And takes up much less room) I actually think it fits very well with your other mounts. I'm impressed!

That’s a little off the wall. :Bored:

Just kidding and sorry for the bad pun. ;)

I like that. I really do. It’s unique and it fits in very well with your wall full of great memories. Well done! (y)(y)

That's a really good mount. Must admit I was rather taken by the caracal in the background as well - nice to see an elegant mount and not all snarly and angry. You've used some good taxidermists.

Oh man. I gave up on the idea of hyena bc the full body mount did not seem like a good value. I'm going to have to consider this!

Thanks for sharing

Looks nice!

I am a huge fan of shoulder mounts over lifesize. My father has a life size antelope that they bought at a yard sale. Guy was going through a divorce and my dad paid about $300 for it.

It is a huge one, something like 16 with big cutters. They have a huge house, but it is a big pain in the ass. I can't see doing a lifesize on a bigger animal ever.

Unless I was building a museum.

Yes I think you need to be very rich to have a lot of Full body mounts for many reasons, not the least the Taxidermy bills !

Lost me a bit there @Muskox, do you mean Warthog, some species of Pig or a type of Demon Antelope ?

Hi Bob, how's things going in Wyong?. Down your way a couple of years back but haven't been in NSW since Ebor for the fishing. just getting over some nasty storms up here in Qld, seeing the sun for the first time in a few days. I'm going to NZ in the spring and hope to clean up a few buns while there and perhaps shake the spiders out of my old .303LE (currently owned by my BIL). Cheers Brian

Did you purchase your hunt at a US SCI fundraiser?

Heard you may have load data for the 500 Jeffery,.....any info would be appreciated. Was thinking 535gr, but already had a response that the 570gr would be a better way to go, not sure why.
