Hi all, I was hoping some of the S. African or other taxidermists checking this site could provide some suggestions or solutions for my situation. I have a small taxidermy business (Busheveld Taxidermy, LLC) in Tucson, Arizona and prefer to mount African plains game. It basically pays for my African hunting addiction. On our last hunt a year ago I shot a fine Common Reedbuck with my bow which in in SCI book as # 15 so it was a pretty nice specimen. Well, the tannery in the US which received and checked in all of our trophies in three crates somehow lost my reedbuck horn sheaths when they consolidated all the skulls and horns into one crate which I just received. I am worried after three weeks of looking that they will never come up with them. As a TOPS animal in RSA, even if I were to locate a pair of horn sheaths that were similar in size, getting those replacement horns exported would be very difficult due to the TOPS permits required from what I understand. I have not given up hoping they will turn up but in the event they do not, is there no other way to get a good replacement set from Africa? I realize something may be available online from vendors that I researched but what I have seen is either not correct (too small) or incorporated in some old mount. Just looking for ideas. One that I may have to fall back on is to completely create a set from my pictures, sculpted onto the existing horn cores of the reedbuck's skull. I would use a 1/4" threaded steel rod anchored into the cores as the backbone and build out with various expoxie clays and magic smooth. The measurements of this pair were roughly 13" Long with 6.5" circumferences at the bases. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks!
