cape buffalo problems
It's not uncommon to receive a shipment in from African with some sort of problems. I just finished a safari for a client that had horn damage on 2 cape buffalo. I'll post a few pictures of before and after as I did the horn repair.

I started by scraping and using a wire brush to get all the loose stuff off. I need a solid base for the epoxy and resin to stick to.
Wow, what a mess. Looks like it will take some magic to fix that.
This is awesome. I assume the buff had soft bases?
Great stuff Dennis. Two great bulls also
Pat, I would say soft boss was a big part but It also looked like the horns rolled over and may have been boiled.
I'll try and post a field picture for reference.
Here's a few pictures from the same safari.
Looks great as always Dennis. You are an artist my friend.
That's a whole lot of work to get those bosses back but it also can be a bit fun to restore so much sp well. Nice Job Dennis!
Wow, great work with the bosses. love the leopard too!!
Awesome Dennis. I would love to see the detail on that leopard. Looks amazing.
Looks great Dennis, thanks for sharing. I always enjoy your threads like this.
Looks like a full day's job turning the ears on that Roan!!
Very nice Dennis. African stuff seems to always be a challenge.
Nice work, as usual, brother!!
Thanks again guys!
Tobywon- Here's a close up of the leopard for you.
Oh man Dennis,just awesome!!! Im a big fan of predators in non-aggressive poses like that. I do appreciate other poses but just prefer that way.
I dropped off my friends Bison Cape on Monday at Dennis's studio while driving home from Illinois and saw all these animals. It is always a big thrill to see what's being worked on by Dennis. Thanks for posting.
PS: Also saw a few Bowsite guys sheep being worked on:)) Very cool!!
Great info and thread as always Dennis!
