    I finally got all my mounts into one place. I was surprised how big my elk was, but I kept it as the centerpiece.

    I do have one question for my fellow AH hunters. Has anyone done a full body mount of a steenbok at rest an placed it under a glass coffee table or side table? I'm returning to Namibia this year with my wife and would like another one, but full mount. 20190109_195400.jpeg

    It is surprising how much room any mounted trophy takes up.

    I think you may have an issue with a Steenbok "bedded" under a glass table. I think there might be too much height to work. A Cabinet might work though.

    I can suggest that you go look at the forms on a taxidermy supply site and see what the dimensions are.

    Add a nice hearth to the fire place and you will have a great place for a bedded steenbok!

    I like the idea, but I really wanted a center piece that would attract attention in the center of the room.

    Maybe Guinea fowl instead? A small cat? I'm hunting with now again when I go back, so I'm somewhat limited.

    Not that kind. I'm allergic to those!
