Post Your African Game Taxidermy

My crate from South Africa will be on it's way soon. I already have an idea on how I want to get them done but I'd like to see how some of the members on here have their's done. I'd really appreciate it! Thanks

Re: Post Your African Game Taxidermy

Here are a few for your enjoyment. First, a couple of traditional shoulder wall mounts:
Red Hartebeest


Waterbuck


Kudu, gemsbok, and impala


Now for a couple of options, a full body mount.
Springbok


Steenbuck


A couple of pedistal mounts.
Sable

Zebra in the corner, plus a few other wall mounts.

Re: Post Your African Game Taxidermy

They look just as good now, Muttley, as they did in person. In my opinion the Sable is the most regal of the African antelope. Too bad they are not as abundant or as affordable as impala.

The Zebra with the skin in the pedestal is also one that I really liked in person. The hide is too unique to waste.

I support all hunters, regardless of weapon or technique!

Wow Mutt. Impressive. If I had all of those mounts, I would have to add on to the house.

Traditions only last if you pass them down to your kids!

Re: Post Your African Game Taxidermy

Actually, cspot, we did. Well, not exactly. We had a small apartment over our garage. My son in law decided that I needed a proper trophy room, so he gutted the apartment and built a 16 X 30 addition on to it. The "trophy room" is actually two rooms. The downstairs is all North American game. The upstairs is stuff from Africa and New Zealand. My W 1 FE unit calls it "George's Museum." Anytime anyone is in the area I would be happy to have you visit it.

As many of you know, the titles of my books are THE LUCKIEST HUNTER ALIVE, and THE LUCKIEST HUNTER IS STILL ALIVE. Gal that fishes tells me the third one should be THE LUCKIEST HUNTER WITH ONE FOOT IN THE GRAVE. All joking aside, I truly am one lucky hunter. Probably the greatest stroke of luck was finding the woman who has been my wife for 51 going on 52 years. Nobody else would put up with me, and she loves to go along. I do the shooting and she takes photos.

I agree with you on the zebra! It's on my list for next May and I think I'll have to copy off of Mutt.
