Hi all, finally after a 2 1/2 year wait I've finished my Kudu and Oryx mounts from my awesome hunt in Namibia with Kowas Safaris in 2016. I don't really have room for them but will jam them somewhere! Initially the drawers were only makeshift pedestals but now I don't mind them....and they're functional I guess. Very happy to have them done, fantastic memories!

Cheers
Tim

Very nice! Curios about the 2-1/2 year wait, was that by design or did you encounter some problems along the way?

A little from Column A, a little from Column B mate....

Unfortunately, Trophaendienste Taxidermy in Namibia destroyed all of our capes and we had to wait a further year to have them replaced, all well documented on here.

But the rest of the wait was on me.....as a Taxidermist my own mounts always get left for last....I'm the worst paying customer I've got haha ;)

Cheers guys.
Tim

Thanks one and all for the kind comments. Very happy with the result, it was a lot of hard work.

Very nice, I assume they are going either side of the bed, seeing as you used drawers for the base. (y)

Haha we'll see what the wife has to say about that :whistle:

When money allows I'd like to have some custom pedestals built. But at the moment I'm spending it all hunting :D

Cheers
Tim

I like the idea of drawers, opening doors, wine rack, liquor cabinet, etc on the pedestal. Of course I’m a “form follows function” retired engineer.

Well my Christmas gift to myself was a pair of custom built pedestal bases to finally finish these mounts. Delivered just in time on Christmas eve.

Very happy with the result. Just need more room now!!

Cheers

Kevin,
Played rookie league for the Yankees in Paintsville after winning the College World Series at Fullerton State, in1979. All I could think about was the movie “Deliverance”- lived up in a hollow with some other players. Refused to go on a moonshine run because it was a dry county-no way. Met some of the nicest people on the planet there! Van Lear the home of Loretta Lynn was highlight of summer LOL.

Mule deer and Colorado elk seasons almost done! Hunters driving farm roads, looking for racks, their PH driving them along, I ask that you not pull into my drive. The buck behind me, on the boundary line of the GMU somehow knows. The hunter laughs, I would invite you in to see my Searcy rifles but social distancing prevails, darkness arrives and the buck slides away into secret tree grove...
