    Euro mounts / skull cleaning

    With the roar apon us and everyone out for their trophy of a life time. I have been doing a few euro/skull mounts for fellow members. Prices from $150 for Chamois and Tahr, $175 for Fallow, $200 for Reds.

    Shields from @HoppyV8 are available see his thread here. https://www.nzhuntingandshooting.co....-medium-87306/

    That's the plan.....there's 2 more reds on the other side of that wall, that tacky light fitting will be removed and be replaced with LED strip lighting along the top of the door making room for another head......hopefully a Fallow buck next run with a bit of luck.
    With 5 stag/buck euro mounts, and 29" billy euro the walls are getting fullish....but not full each one a memory.
