    I got this animal in SA in 2017. Just picked it up from the taxidermist today. I wanted something a bit different that not a lot of people would have and I think I did it. I really like the way it turned out. There is a photo of when I shot it with a 22RF and a couple of the finished product. I will get a nice label thing to put on the top with what it is and the year I got it. I really like it and the way it turned out. :)
    Looks like they will have my Zebra rug later this week. Then to mount it to plywood and screw it up on a wall.

    Thank you. I like the tusk also. Kind of an African feel.

    Those little guys like that end up costing you a lot of money with the full body mounts!

    Love it.

    Yes I was a bit surprised at the cost but it was worth it. I am very happy with it. More money than a shoulder mount Black Wildebeest
