I expect almost everyone is going to have an opinion about this question. The short version is "I shot several animals on my first safari. Which ones I have shoulder mounted?" This time last year, when I had no thoughts of ever hunting in Africa, I was feeling like my trophy room was close to being comfortably full. I figured that I had room for 2 - 3 more shoulder mounts. Then I decided to go on a plains game hunt. I got a nice kudu (around 50") an exceptional (at least that's what I'm told) blue wildebeest, 2 gemsbok (about 36"), a hartebeest that is special for me because of how tough it was, springbok and impala. Since I wasn't sure about what I wanted to do, I had capes, skulls and horns for each of the animals shipped to the US. My wife thinks that I should have shoulder mounts done for all of them because "they have such pretty faces". I had a shoulder mount done for my first caribou, and with 20/20 hindsight, I think that was a mistake. It's a decent bull, but not huge. I shot a much nicer one the following year. I don't want to repeat that mistake with my African animals. Like others on this site, I'm hooked on Africa. I have another safari booked for September 2014 and I'd like to keep going back as long as I am able. This year's animals should reach the US soon - possibly this week. Then, it's going to be decision time. So, what do you think?
