I'm typically more of a fan of actual mounts than just skull/european/horn, but with something like a Buffalo..... IDK they just take up SO much room! What i will say, is that the picture @Bushpig4Ever posted looks very impressive. Now that really shows off the boss!!!
I hope you recover soon and I'm looking forward to seeing how it turned out!

I’ve never liked most of the buff mounts I’ve seen especially as they age. I chose to just do a skull mount on mine. For me if I ever do a buff shoulder mount I would have to have, well let’s say, a really top taxidermist do it. I am not a fan of most I’ve seen.
Plus I just want to hunt more buffalo and not worry about the taxidermy.
Best of luck!

I don’t disagree, if you’re going to shoulder mount a buff use the best taxidermist you can find. Lesser work ages poorly. I have a pedestal mount, shoulder mount (wall) and a bunch of skull mounts. We have a very interesting mount coming from Zim (CWA’s shop in Bulawayo). It is a leather covered skull cap mount on a short pedestal for table top display.

Wall form altered to a Wall pedestal. Takes a little less room and has that Buffalo flare and attitude.

Hi Bob, how's things going in Wyong?. Down your way a couple of years back but haven't been in NSW since Ebor for the fishing. just getting over some nasty storms up here in Qld, seeing the sun for the first time in a few days. I'm going to NZ in the spring and hope to clean up a few buns while there and perhaps shake the spiders out of my old .303LE (currently owned by my BIL). Cheers Brian

Did you purchase your hunt at a US SCI fundraiser?

Heard you may have load data for the 500 Jeffery,.....any info would be appreciated. Was thinking 535gr, but already had a response that the 570gr would be a better way to go, not sure why.
