I was planning on a full body mount of my nyala that I shot in Zim. last year but after the phone call I got from my taxidermist this morning I now know that isn't going to happen. The tannery called him to notify him that my nyala cape had been chewed up by bugs, the nose was chewed badly and the rest of the skin was chewed up here and there. They emailed photos at my request and it does look pretty bad. We decided to have them cut the cape for a shoulder mount and tan it and we will try to salvage at least that much. I emailed the taxidermy shop that handled the dip/crate as well as the outfit that I hunted with and haven't heard any thing back yet. To say that I am disappointed would be an understatement.
