Here are just a few pics of my trophy room. I just got the giraffe up and that was quite a job! Still have to figure out how to get croc on the wall. Can't wait to get the lion standing on the mantle. It is a work in progress and quite a few trophies at the taxidermist still. Our lodge has two guest rooms and two full bathrooms. Its quite a comfortable and quiet get away.

Great looking trophy room.
I’ve never seen oryx mounted like that. Quite inteareasting. Could you please post a few close ups from different angles?
I always wanted an oryx, but a shoulder mount is to large for my available space. Thank you for your post.

Lion is going to look great on the mantle.

Agree on the Oryx, very cool.

See you in Dallas!

What a grand looking place! Are the gemsboks actual head mounts, or painted skulls, or just what? I really like that. You got all the character in a very shallow space!
Thanks for sharing!

Really nice. That bull oryx in the center is impressive with lots of mass. Have you put a tape on that cow with the flaring horns? They have to score well.

The lion will be the real centerpiece.

We did the same thing, putting animals and guest quarters together.

Can’t remember but that biggest cow my son shot (39” I think maybe 40”) on my friends Sheep Farm in southern Namibia. Man between the actual safari and the Farm visit we took many oryx that year.

Great place to hang your hat after a day at work or in the field!

Hi Bob, how's things going in Wyong?. Down your way a couple of years back but haven't been in NSW since Ebor for the fishing. just getting over some nasty storms up here in Qld, seeing the sun for the first time in a few days. I'm going to NZ in the spring and hope to clean up a few buns while there and perhaps shake the spiders out of my old .303LE (currently owned by my BIL). Cheers Brian

Did you purchase your hunt at a US SCI fundraiser?

Heard you may have load data for the 500 Jeffery,.....any info would be appreciated. Was thinking 535gr, but already had a response that the 570gr would be a better way to go, not sure why.
