This animal has been on my mind! Where is the best place to shoot a stud? I think this will be the main objective of my future Safari! I k is I’m getting way ahead of myself but how do y’all like y’all’s mounts? I think a euro would look great!
Go with a shoulder mount, imo. It takes up very little space. Also the mount my wife likes and approved for our home office.

I have four of them on the wall, all euros. They do make a very pretty and "manageable" shoulder or pedestal mount. I'm just not much into fur and glass eyes. Shot this dandy my last trip. I wasn't really expecting to shoot one but the lodge owner convinced me. Then I culled a couple more from my PH's property. I was careful to not shoot them up and had both hides tanned for end tables in living room.
The Karoo has a reputation for having the best Spingbok.
All the colors of springbok are beautiful and full of character. I actually prefer a “fuller” wall pedestal that shows more of the markings and color. This pic is just to show the option, mine are still at the taxidermist.
They are inexpensive and lots of fun to hunt-go for it!
There are several on this site that offer springbok slam “deals”

The Karoo has some monsters, but usually you'll pay for them. Bred and fed for horn size. The Kalahari has some great ones from RSA to Namibia and I suspect into Botswana as well.
Jules of Karoo if you want the biggest springbuck. Bred to gain maximum size. Not inexpensive.

Looking for shipping advice. I will be hunting in Limpopo in March, and was wanting to know a general idea of shipping costs to return my mounts to the US when completed. Air or sea? Only plains game hunting.

Good morning 7MAG. I have a NEW, never mounted, Leupold M8-4X Extended Eye Relief scope that I will sell you for $325 shipped to you. I was a Leupold rep for 12 years and this was always our preferred mounting for a lever gun, scout rifle style.

You’ve got an interesting screen name. Will the Thrill provided lots of great times for me as a lifelong Giants fan. Even though I never met him, a number of buddies either duck hunted or shared a dugout with him. He’s a great guy according to those guys. Cool screen name and if that’s your real name, it’s a great one.
