    Mounts from my 2014 hunt with Kubusi Safari. Took awhile to get them here but I'm going to love unwrapping these!

    Show us some pictures after you have them out of the box... and let us know what you think of your trophies on your wall.

    It looks like they did a good job of packing for you to take the puzzle apart.

    Merry Christmas...

    Couldn't ask Santa for a better gift! I'm curious I've seen photos of trophy shipments and the kudu horns of course are removed for transport, do the just screw back on? I mean no sort of adhesive?

    You have to buy a special kudu wrench. ;)

    To my understanding some folks do glue them on and some don't. Nice thing about just setting them on is you can take them off if you have to move te mounts again.

    my son and I each killed a kudu a few years ago and were mounted in africa.
    Mine came back looking so-so.
    His was horrible.
    I had my taxidermist here re-mount his with a new hide.
    His looked much better. Not only the hide, but the horns look better where the seam is meeting the hide.
    But, like you said, when we move, mine will be easier to transport.

    DON'T glue them on....... as you say, it is then easy to remove should you need to move them, take them down for cleaning etc

    Looks good but I'd interested what you think about the work as I'm going with them in March. If you can PM me about how the hunt went that would be great too.
