I picked this one up today. Very happy with how this turned out. As usual, photos don't fully capture the beauty in this beast. This was taken with @LJ SAFARIS .

What taxidermist did it?
 
Local to Southern Oregon, Link River Taxidermy. Brock Thompson is his name.
 
really cool what is the finish, ie... gun metal ?
could you provide a link to his business?

The oribi and Steenbok were done by Link River. The duiker was originally done in South Africa and will be remounted in a similar pose and added to my tiny ten collection. I also will soon add the grysbok and klipspringer.
 
Very nice! All of it!
 
Thank you.
 
I really like that very much !!!! Can you tell me how much they charge to duplicate a Warthog.
 
@Manny R
To duplicate? I really haven't a clue. The link to their Facebook page is above, give them a shout. If that doesn't help, feel free to pm and I'll give you their number.
The downside is there are 3 taxidermists at the business and one has been out with a dilapidating illness for many months and their work is stacking up. He's a good dude and it's a long road to recovery
 
That work on the warthog is beautiful, and I also like your wife's Nyala.
 
Is this like a cast metal copy or how is this done? Looks cool!
 
@Certus it's a type of paint process
 
I had Life-form taxidermy do a bronzed warthog skull vey similar to the original posters. Came out great.

I would be interested in it if you pass. Please send me the info on the gun shop if you do not buy it. I have the needed ammo and brass.
Thanks,
Ross
