Check out Walden + Bork. They evidently make a business of creating useful items from game hides. Saw the ad in Sporting Classics magazine. Waaay too rich for my blood however.

You're right about the pricing. A bit beyond my SS checks:(, but some nice ideas!

Nice Dennis! I'll keep you in mind. Do you show any on your website?
Thanks!

Hi Ridgewalker
Looking at the part above I am guessing that you are having a shoulder mount of your oryx and Kudu. Of the other trophies my number 2 was the Nyala, number 1 Kudu. I don't know how they cut the hide for the Nyala but they are a beautiful animal. If you have a whole hide coming. That is going to be a great hide. Here is the best shot I have of one. If it is split down the stomach you will have a great hide.
What ever you do don't give these hides away.

These are my top two trophies of my two hunts!
Not the best animals but my top animals.

Who did your taxidermy work on the Nyala and Kudu?

The Nyala was done by Dennis and the Kudu was done in SA can’t say anything good about it but that is a different story!

Hi Luke. Just saw your message. I am in Dillingham, and have been since 2002. I took an elementary teaching gig here, taught here five years, and then got a job with Togiak National Wildlife Refuge as their education and outreach specialist. Recently I just got a promotion and now I'm the Visitor Services Manager. Prior to DLG I spent 6 years teaching for Lake and Pen in Nondalton.

Hi TT
I am glad you found some useful info in my posts. Hard cast WFN with GC will do the job fine. I trust Veral Smith (owner of LBT company) - I believe that he can provide you with some finest HC bullets. Many companies are coping his design. I can help you from here in developing max loads (40.000psi) just let me know which powder you are using (I use Quick Load software which turns to be very reliable).
