Damn, that may be the strangest giraffe mount I’ve ever seen. But it’s starting to grow on me. Way cool

Here's what I done with my giraffe so far. I still haven't figured out what I want to do with the other stuff. Once I have the other stuff done I'll upload them photos as well. Just don't buy a house just to house a giraffe mount like I did

PS I haven't remodeled the trophy room yet so don't mind the pink flower wallpaper.

There are plenty of people that would say the same about any and everything you've taken in the name of hunting. However, the majority of those people have likely never been exposed to hunting, understand hunting, or even want to understand hunting.
I'm a bit more than shocked that a member of this forum might have that frame of mind.

I think I get what they’re trying to say. The OP didn’t know what to do with a giraffe, and the responses amounted to, “If you don’t know what you want to do with it, why would you hunt it?” I don’t take it as an anti-hunting response, but more of a practical response. I wouldn’t know what to do with a giraffe either. But I knew I wanted a bear rug, so I went on a bear hunt.

I’m quite surprised by some anti giraffe hunting posts here. I thought as hunters we all understood that harvesting a trophy means a lot more than that. Species survival, funds to the local community etc. Almost sounds like anti hunting rhetoric.

I've been saying for years it won't be anti hunters that put an end to hunting it will be hunters against hunters

Thank you for your input. However, OP stated he didn’t consider giraffe to be game... on a post where original OP simply asked for ideas for after a successful legal hunt. Original OP wasn’t asking opinions on whether or not people regarded giraffe as game. Big difference.

Kevin,
Played rookie league for the Yankees in Paintsville after winning the College World Series at Fullerton State, in1979. All I could think about was the movie “Deliverance”- lived up in a hollow with some other players. Refused to go on a moonshine run because it was a dry county-no way. Met some of the nicest people on the planet there! Van Lear the home of Loretta Lynn was highlight of summer LOL.

Mule deer and Colorado elk seasons almost done! Hunters driving farm roads, looking for racks, their PH driving them along, I ask that you not pull into my drive. The buck behind me, on the boundary line of the GMU somehow knows. The hunter laughs, I would invite you in to see my Searcy rifles but social distancing prevails, darkness arrives and the buck slides away into secret tree grove...
