I don't think the freight was much different than from Africa at all

Great going Reedy! Definitely post a pic of the stag when he makes it to the wall, he deserves a better showing for sure.

Finally got some help to get the big boy on the wall, here are a few pics

Great collection of trophies!!! That's an awesome red stag! It's cool seeing him next to those elk- you get a good size comparison.

Thanks @rinehart0050 ! Yeah it ended up looking not bad next to the elk, and it does show the mass of the stag

The next NZ trophy idea (these are not mine, just looking at some pics on AH and the internet in general). May have to get a chamois to do a double mount!

Well,

After some time putting off the taxidermy (because I have so much in line with my guy :ROFLMAO:) I finally went ahead and got the tahr mounted. Running out of space quickly in my home I decided to do a floor mount and squeeze him into my office. Now I can look at him everyday and remember how grand and majestic the mountains of NZ are and what a hunt it was for this guy!

WOW!!! and EMPRESSIVE are words that come to mind. Are you trying to get all of your hunting done prior to giving up your bachelor status? I'm insanely jealous.

Nice trophies!
Never hunted Kiwi country, but visited it, bicycled all the South Island, jet boated, helicoptered landed and hiked around the Philip Joseph glacier, etc. Magnificently beautiful country!
You are a lucky guy to have such a great hunt there! I'm very jealous!

I have a like new VC .450 I might part with. I had it built in 2013 and it has served me well. Also have a VC fitted leather trunk case for it along with the plastic case it came with. I'll take 14000 for all of it.

Hi Jody,
I have been looking for ideas on the best way to display my European mounts from Africa. I came across some of your shield work and was wondering if you would be willing to make one for me? If so, please let me know the cost. I like the shield with the two spears that you built for a member years ago. Thanks.
