    I actually took a little time to snap a few photos with my iPhone. These are the horns I used to recently update the horn reconditioning thread. I need to add more to that also.
    Nyala are one of my favorites ! BC6AC9D6-65CD-4DD4-8F43-9255FB373673.jpeg DE6F4B10-673B-4577-AA1B-2C5960E919D8.jpeg 19FA589A-634E-4B58-9820-537B5F578F55.jpeg

    Beautiful mount! Did you do the work? My two favorites are the Kudu & Nyala. I need a Nyala on my wall. :)

    Yes I did the taxidermy. I do a few mounts in my spare time. This was actually a remount. The first was done in SA and not done very well I'm afraid. We got really lucky as I purchased this as a salted cape from another taxi in the States so I couldn't really preview it before buying. It could have been a train wreck but instead it turned out to be a great cape.

    I need a better camera :(

    Great looking mount. Nyala will be the main emphasis of my next safari.
