I plan to do a full body mount on this klipspringer but my taxidermist has not ever done one so I really would like to see some photos of your mount to get some ideas of what looks realistic and cool. Suggestions and comments welcome.

Not being a smart A$$, but remove you and your hand from that picture and that would look like a realistic, cool, and bedded Klipspringer.

Great animal, Congratulations!

Good luck,

Scar,

Sorry for the double posts. On my mobile.

All of these are from Zimbabwe. The full body was from a hunt back in 2008; however, the hair slipped and I couldn't do anything but a shoulder mount. I got the 2nd Klippy in 2011and swapped-out horns to make it work.

I really like the set-up on the smaller antelope and will add my Oribi and Dik Dik from 2015 in Tanzania to the mount. My Steenbok and monster Duiker from Botswana back in 2001 (when you could hunt there) never made it over here.
