Shot this blackbuck a couple weeks ago. He was free range, first one I've ever killed. Don't really know how to measure him, but he was roughly 19" from base to tips (in a straight line). I have 2 questions...

Would his size make a good pedestal mount and or any other kind of shoulder mount? Yes, he is a trophy to me, but if he is considered sub par I will just euro mount him.

Second question, if he is worth mounting, can anyone recommend a taxidermist near the FW/Granbury area?

Thanks

1. Yes, shoulder, turn him left or right.
2. No idea.

That is a very good BB. You are the one who decides what to do with him. If you haven't caped or froze him you have only one way to go.

Mount him!!

He is probably about the same size as mine was. Love my mount.

Little farther from you but NateC did mine and did an outstanding job. Well worth the little drive.

Shoot me a Pm if you need his number.

I'd mount him. And I would take him to non-typical taxidermy in tolar tx. He has worked on 5 mounts for currently has one of my auodad and blackbucks as well. He does great work and you chat find better prices. Def worth driving and lookibg as his work in person.

Gods creation is in Cresson, directly across the street from my neighborhood. I went over and took a look at his new shop, looked good... But, I was warned about him from a few people, was told he has a few mounts and not getting back to people (more then just a long turn around).
