    Chamois Skull/Horns

    I have tanned a nice chamois buck cape and am wanting to try my hand at taxidermy with a shoulder mount. Unfortunately one of the horns broke off in a good tumble after I shot it that I didn't manage to retrieve.

    Hoping to get my hands on a buck skull with horns in good nick. Looking for something around the 8-9 inch mark. Obviously happy to pay good coin if someone is kind enough to part with one!

    Cheers.
