    Tahr and Chamois heads

    Iíve just got some photos of my heads which are on the way from Tyron Southward in Canterbury. I e had them just sitting around the shed for years so thought Iíd finally get them done. The chamois was shot on the seaward Kaikoura range in 2009.
    The Tahr south Canterbury in 2010 ish. Iíve got acres of space and a high stud in my new house so up they go. Will post some pics when they are on the wall.

    Nathan they look damned good.

    How long did you have to wait? I have a Fallow I want done and the wait times are like, 8 months. I'm too impatient for that.

    I’m pretty sure I sent them mid February so 5 months. Very easy quick and efficient service. I can’t wait to see them
    When they arrive.

    They look great and the Tahr looks to be in the perfect place over the fire place... If you don't mind me asking how big is the Tahr and Chamois?

    Its a great Tahr mount.

    And they are inclined to hop down and run around on the mantle piece. Don't put valuable vases and stuff on it. He will do it at night when no one can see.

    I would move it. By the time you notice heat affecting it damage will be done.
    Overkill is still dead.

    I had to have my red stag head repaired a few years ago - ears started to split - too hot where it was. Unless you have a higher ceiling stud.

    A well known taxidermist and ol friend Gerry O'Rourke once told me direct sunlight and fire heat will take it's toll over time.
    Keep them dusted,bug proofed and give them a wipe down with dampish cloth now and again,,he added.
