My trophies are still at the tannery but I know where I would like to display them. I've looked on line and I found a pedestal form that I really like that I wanted to mount on a wall? Is it possible to alter a floor pedestal into a wall pedestal?

To answer your original question- yes you can alter a full pedestal to make it into a wall pedestal in most cases. The horn clearance for gemsbok will be the issue. The true pedestal poses usually aren't concerned as much about horn clearance as the wall pedestals have to be, which might cause difficulties in the conversion. I've converted black wildebeast and kudu pedestals into wall pedestals.

Thanks for the info buck wild. I can see the horn clearance being an issue...especially on a monster like the one you posted! I do alittle welding and have been thinking about a plate that extends out and allows for the horn clearance and at the same gives me a custom look. Awesome trophy room!

Nice mounts. Especially the Kudu on the right. I like the offset look of the wall pedestal. And the horns are perfect tight curl and nice V shape. That's my target kudu!

I bought some bullets from Rimshot and he is good to trade with!
Greetings all! I've been a hunter for 50 years, but only now planning a trip to Africa. I was fortunate and successfully bid on a couple hunts for plains game in SA later this year and next. Also a rare Native Texas (5th generation) and USMC Vet. Hunt safe y'all!
