    Picked it up today- everything was in tip top shape !! Most animals lost 1/2 inch to one inch due to shrinkage from boiling and drying but the mountain reedbuck held up nicely. I'll be getting it scored soon as I still think it'll go top 10 SCI.

    Jealous!!!!

    Mine didn't make it out before the yearly shutdown, which I hate and love. Hate that I don't have it yet, and love that the bill won't come until next year!
