I am going to ask my taxidermist here is we can get ahold of a form like that!

Ohio Taxidermy supply has a pose like these as a taxidermy form option except it’s a left turn. They are a taxi supply business so your US taxi should be able to get one easy. It was sculpted by a very talented SA taxidermist Travis De Vilers. Dennis has used some and there are pics here somewhere.

Finishing touches to my eland and I am really liking how he came out. Can tell they take pride in there work and customer input was listen to. I can not wait to see them in july with my own eyes in person.

LOL I love it I made your journal. You can thank me after the eland hunt as it is one of the best hunt I think you can do at a price that does not break the bank like a big 5 hunt. Tracking one down is just a fun hunt and then when you see the massive bull your heart rate goes through the roof.

All I could say is wow when I got these pictures of my Oryx. They did a great job on this one also. I think everyone should have a oryx mount as they are one of the ones that are just beautiful to look at.

They finished up my Mtn. zebra pedestal mount. This was one fun hunt that ended with a beautiful stallion that they knocked out of the park with the mount.

The kudu done for now till I see it in person. They are worried the ears maybe off in color but want to wait till I see the mount. I like the colors they match the picture I took but the spots turned darker so they may touch them up later. I am very happy with how it turned out from the natural horn color to the detail in the mount. Ingwe Taxidermy has been great to work with and looking forward to dropping off some more for then to work on.

Thanks I think so to. They take great pride in the work they do and have been a true pleasure to work with. Getting work done over there is not right for everyone but I have been very happy.

To be honest at first I was unsure of the pose. But the more I looked at it the more I liked it and decide to have it done


I think it catches your eye when you look at it. They have made some nice forms over seas and it is nice they are coming over here for guys to get now.

I did a little housekeeping in my shop and found some .500 Jeffery ammo that I no longer need. Superior Ammunition and Hendershots loaded them, along with AHR (American Hunting Rifles). Several Woodleigh/A-Square solids along with lead bullets in both 535g and 600g. Message me for any details.

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
