From my experience in mounting Wild Boars I believe you won't go wrong if you use Rick Carter's forms from WASCO. Also, Joe Coombs has come out with a new line that is excellent. You won't go wrong using either one of them. There easy to mount on or work with.

I agree with John. One important thing though...

Take a measurement between the eyes and correspond that to your mannikin. Coombs make two styles. One is narrower between the eyes than the other. (so does WASCO for that matter). Makes it a lot easier than modifying. I use the coombs mannikins thanks to Jeanette Hall's suggestion to do so and now I'm hooked.
