    After over a year of waiting just for my leopard skin to get home from Mozambique, last week I was finally able to pick up the completed mount from my Taxidermist.

    This is the leopard that I shot in 2015 hunting with Simon Leach and Martin Snyman of Traditional Mozambique Safaris. The Taxidermy work was done by Monarch Taxidermy in Helena, MT. They put the mount on a base cabinet that I made. It instantly became my favorite mount.
