    DO you have a good African taxidermist in your area? (Ie, within a day's drive?)

    If so, get them sent home and mount them there. Simply too much variation in African work in my opinion.

    I see this an old thread that has been revived. My two cents ( probably one cent) is to bring them home period. I realize by now your hunt is over and I am curious as to what your decision was.

    Yes, bring them home. If something goes wrong, you have a fighting chance to get them fixed. Fat chance if you deal with Highveld Taxidermist. Their solution to their sh*tty work was for me to ship the mounts to them and pay the shipping & return.
