This box was incredibly well packed TIGHT!!! The animals could not move at all inside.

My bushpig turned out great (especially given the fact they didnít have much to work with from the start on looks).

And then there is this guy. Wow, is he bigger than I remember. Have to wait till Saturday unfortunately till I get some help and get him all the way out of the box, but so far, Iím stoked about how he turned out! Still have to build a pedestal base for him before he takes permanent residence in the house, so I got some work ahead of me!

They did great job on both mounts, congrats. Looks like you got a new camp drinking cup too. Cape Buffalo definitely a bucket list item.

I thought you must have a 1/2 body mount in that huge box

Didn't realize there were more critters in there

When I seen the size of the box, I didnít know what to expect and was wondering what Iíd gotten ... he took up 90% of the box up AT LEAST! Once I get him out Iíll get some pics beside the box.
