That critter has eluded me so many times! Still on my list if I ever go back. That looks pretty cool.

Thank you @Cam Moon, never thought of the US Antelope (known as Demon Antlope lol) & the Prongs are called "Cutters" on them Eh ?

I have always liked them to, very cool looking Unique animal !

I think they are too. And a fun, challenging hunt too. We often just call them antelope here, but Pronghorn is proper. Apparently they aren't even a type of antelope! LOL

LoL really, funny I won $50 off a American hunter of mine many years back when I told him the American Antelope - Pronghorn - shed their horns, he said no way, what would I know & bet me they did not !

Well he checked it out & sent the money, I said not to worry but he was adamant !

Interesting to learn the Prong points are called Cutters .

They have an outer sheath that grows over the actual bone. The sheath is regrown every year, but the bone itself isn't shed. This is unlike a deer, elk, etc with antlers which are made of bone, but are actually shed every year and then regrown.
We've got amazing animals all over the world, and it's interesting to see the differences.
But back on topic, I would say that from all the comments about this shoulder mounted hyena, that it's something that more than a few of us might consider doing, even if we had dismissed it before. I keep going back and looking at it, and I think that being in the company of all the other shoulder mounts really helps with it's appeal as well.
It just plain FITS! :A Thumbs Up:

It looks great but I too really like the caracal!

Can you post more pictures of that?

I am planning on a hyena hunt in october, so I will add this to my options for the mount. I have been looking at the many possible mount options. I like the way yours is done.

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.
