Now That's a Mount!

One of the best things about the SCI Show is the chance it provides to gawk at all the fabulous taxidermy. Regardless whether I can afford to entertain the idea of hunting some of these critters, I can at least appreciate the beauty of it all. There are mounts of just about everything any hunter has ever heard of, including full-body mounts of bull elephants and absolutely fabulous shoulder mounts of bull elephants — like this one. Can you imagine the space in a house to entertain this mount? Can you imagine the house it takes to carve out such a space? Can you imagine the cost of this mount? Can you imagine the cost of a hunt to bag this fella? Me neither. Thus, like the majority of America, I come, I gawk, I dream...
