    Here is a few of ours. They are all forms done by relive in the east cape. Some of the forms have been really worked over to enlarge on the eland.

    This might not be what you want but the Blue Wildebeest I got back in 2012 went SCI Gold for a bow. I wanted the arrow that I shot it and a Silver Blesbok to be with it. I made this wall mount for it from wenge wood from Africa.
    It might be an alternative to a shoulder mount.

    Wow guys, those are beautiful mounts! Thank you! Cool idea Bh! Anyone heard of a droop form? I see them in McKenzie for both animals but can't find a pic of one mounted to see how it looks
