    This one wasn't to bad, Eland are never perfect. It only took Jamie 10 hours to finish this one. 8) 8) 8)
    I'd have to say this one does not have an UNPAITNTED square inch on it... ;D

    I have mounted a lot of Eland and I hate them because of the time they take, the drumming you have to fight as they dry and the hours that go by finishing them . Excellent job Dennis and crew.

    Beautiful! They were my second least favorite animal to finish...almost tied with a cape buffalo. Lots of paint and patience. You did an awesome job.

    J here does a few dozen a year.... he acutely like the challenge , I give him his time, usually like a cape Buff, Eland are about a 8 hour finish job.

    Dennis, the way you guys mount these animals is actually too good! A live Eland would be embarrassed to stand next to that mount........
