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.
Tom
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!

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!

I am looking for a Safari Express. Was yours made in New Haven or South Carolina? Any other details you can give me? I am very motivated to buy.
