My life-size Nyala from the Limpopo ! I should have waited for a bigger one but this is what i shot.
I have seen several giants since this hunt but haven't pulled the trigger again on one !

Gorgeous! You do excellent work Van. I get more comments on the Civet you did for me than any other mount.
Life size, the way a Nyala or Bushbuck should be mounted! :A Thumbs Up:

Thanks everyone ! I shot this one because of the shape of the horns. I really like the way they come close together and than spread apart. Totally satisfied with him. I hunted with Victor at Karoo wild Safaris a couple years after this hunt and saw a couple giant Nyala. I was focused on eland at that time and already had this one , so let them walk.

I bought some bullets from Rimshot and he is good to trade with!
Greetings all! I've been a hunter for 50 years, but only now planning a trip to Africa. I was fortunate and successfully bid on a couple hunts for plains game in SA later this year and next. Also a rare Native Texas (5th generation) and USMC Vet. Hunt safe y'all!

I am looking for a Safari Express. Was yours made in New Haven or South Carolina? Any other details you can give me? I am very motivated to buy.
