    Amidst the taxidermy photos of these beauties. My wife (not a dead animal on the wall fan) requested I have these done up as this is the new fashion for ladies decorating up formal living room and dining rooms. (ala Ralph Lauren)

    They are impala European mounts with their skulls padded in impala leather. They were not particularly expensive to have done up in Zimbabwe, perhaps $100 each.

    I thought some of you might find this presentation a good way to get some of your trophies out of the "man cave" and into areas of the home designed and managed by "the boss". :)

    Looks nice. I did some white tail by wrapping a chamois over the skull caps to size and nailing the chamois in with copper tacks to the mesquite wood plaques. They're somewhere in the storage unit now.
