    Was that a heavily maned animal or do you have a trick to make the hair stand out so well that you will share? Excellent mount.

    James it had a nice mane but not a great one. I really am no expert on tahr and only mount 5-6 a year and have found that I can get some manes to stand better than others. I think that the anatomy of the form makes a big difference and the forms I use are sculpted by a local sculptor, Gary pullar who has hunted and observed tahr for many years. I have hunted tahr quite a bit and have found that they only display their mane in the rut and when they have their head in a sneek pose, I mostly mount tahr in a sneek (like in the photo) and by having the neck and head low, and pulling the skin forward I get the mane to stand up like this one.
     
  15. I love it Mark! And hoping you wouldn't mind if I was to pick your brain this summer, as I hunted in New Zealand in 2008 and killed a nice Tahr in the rut. I will be doing a full body mount, and it's getting that mane to stand thats going to be my biggest problem. Still wondering who has the best full body form for Tahr. Any suggestions?
