    Hi Abster71 Congrats on your Kudu! Were are you planing on having it done? I had my floor pedestal mount done by Cecil at Umlindi Taxidermy in Tarkastad, South Africa. the first pic is the day I got it home the second one is after I used a Cedar stump to make the pedestal.

    The way the back of the pedestal is finished can add as much to the mount as position or the pedestal itself. There are many options and your imagination is your only limitation.

    Those are some great Kudu and beautiful mounts.

    Here are mine. The first is a Southern Greater Kudu that I shot in the Limpopo Province in 2000.

    Kudu was taken while hunting with Trevor Lake - Lake Safaris...in the KZN area.

    Taxidermy Work was completed by Animal Artistry...

    The Kudu piece was completed in August.

    Looking to be shipped this week...
