Having a fun day setting all this up and unpacking. The taxidermy seems to be done very well I'm pleased with it.

Taking a short break for lunch after we got the pedestal Mount set up and in the living room. My son's kudu is the one on the left and it's a true world-class trophy 62 in. Mine was only 60 LOL.

This was a great wildebeest that the guy I was hunting with called a golden wildebeest. He had blond or golden face features. I decided not to get him mounted because I didn't feel like I was going to have room for him I'm kind of glad I didn't LOL.

I’d guess he works for it but not really our business though eh?

Who has that kind of money to toss on hunts?

Guys a lot more financially stable than you is who

We know you are Tbm.

Biggie_bucks - apparently Forest does and I say: MORE POWER TO HIM! Now why don't you take your short-sighted, jealous agenda somewhere else!!!!

Thanks for sharing Forest. Congratulations on many incredible trophies and memories with your son! Pete

Done for the day. Another nice Euro Mount Impala and Euro warthog. my wife and I are trying to figure out ideas to do with all of the back skin from the animals. We save them all. would be neat as a backdrop on the wall behind the kudus or maybe as a blanket or something.

Well I never had the taxidermist show up with a flatbed truck! What a pack job! I couldn't even afford the shipping! Good for you!

Very cool congrats! Liked the stonemason comment ??

From: t-roy
09-Feb-19
Looks great, Forest!

I’m assuming you had all of the taxidermy work done in Africa. From what I’ve read, that can be a bit dicey, with little recourse if the work is poor. Your mounts look great to me, but it’s hard to tell from just pics. What’s your overall impression of the work that you and your son had done?

From: Mnhunter1980

Looks like you guys had a blast! Good for you guys! Congrats

Fun times, nice trophies! Who did you hunt with?

From: Forest bows
09-Feb-19
We had newstrom taxidermy do the work in Africa. It is very very good for the price and overall it's way above average I would say. It's not as quality of work as somebody like Dennis razza but it is perfectly acceptable for me. We hunted with motsomi

Very nice. It looks like there is a great lifesize bear mount just out of frame as well. Those kudu are truly impressive trophies. When is your next trip to Africa, and is it for DG this time?

What a wait for the box to finally show up. With all the horror stories about failed shipments Poor trophy care , happy it all worked out for you , what some great mounts . The wife is more interested in the hide wall hanging, any possibility of posting a photo from straight on. That’s a great unique trophy also.

Forest,

Your Home, mounts and the way you have them displayed is beautifully and tastefully done! Congratulations on your success and a wonderful trip with your son! I bet that was a lot of fun unpacking and figuring out where to put them! I love the Africa cutouts with the hide, very cool idea!!!!

Hey Biggie_Bucks… See, that's how you can be a little envious and yet still acknowledge a beautiful home, beautiful mounts, a successful business man that can afford a successful and obviously expensive hunt without being an ass-hat!! Get Some Class!

From: tobywon

Congrats, very nice, now where is that Mountain Goat going?

From: Ambush
10-Feb-19
Some very nice animals and well displayed!! Must have been a blast opening the crate and seeing them all again. Great way to relive each animal, unpacking, assembling and hanging!

I went to RSA in 2010 and am just starting to get animals mounted now. Sure wish I'd saved all the back skins to. The few I did keep are really cool for display.

From: Lucas
10-Feb-19
What a great trip, congratulations on all the animals! Who was the outfitter and did you have them mounted in Africa?

Those are very nice, and congrats to you and your son on a awesome trip and beautiful mounts. About the gemsboks, I guess I never really paid attention to individual color of the gemsboks, but both of yours have different patterns of color. That is very cool.

11-Feb-19
Those are impressive mounts. Love the kudu pedestal. Probably one male and one female gemsbok. They have different horn length and mass and coat color patterns.

I'm not too sure about the gemsbok my wife and I googled some information on it and really couldn't find anything out. They are very very different colored though. If I remember correctly both were males. Everything in that room was shot with a bow.

Forest I hope you know I was kidding! Pretending to be a jealous guy, in reality I just walk around and say: "oh ya, well check this out my buddy Forest Keith, well he's not really my buddy, but we talk on the internet...well, actually we don't talk, but I look at his pictures...."

Congrats Forest.....Wow. Great memories for you and your son. The Zebra really is stunning

From: StickFlicker
11-Feb-19
Wow, great haul of trophies. Congratulations!

I am a bit surprised though that of all the animals you had mounted, you didn't mount the Golden Wildebeest. A Golden Wildebeest is a Blue Wildebeest that is specially bread for that color trait. It's the exact same animal, but it costs triple or more the price of the blue because of the color. It's unusual that someone would pay triple the price to take the gold version, but not keep the part of the trophy that made it "worth" triple the price. Not criticizing if you can afford it, I just thought it odd.

The wildebeest was $500....... Was told the golden trait was something from long ago and it showed up in this bull.

I'm heading over for the first time with my wife in May, hunting with Limcroma. Sable, Impala, wing shooting for me and whatever I can convince her to let me shoot and her first animal (hopefully a big kudu) for her. We are pumped. Congrats on the great animals and beautiful mounts!

Pretty cool room man, looks like you even have a little space left for a few more animals even. My wife always asks how much my taxidermy will be worth when I'm dead, I always respond with not nearly as much as I paid for it! Can't take a checkbook with you to heaven, congrats from top to bottom, cool stuff.
