    I recently picked up a bunch of game heads from a local auction and I’ve identified most of them. These two have me baffled though. I was hoping someone could help me identify these two. I believe the first couple pictures are of a Kudu, the second couple pics I’m guessing is a fallow deer? Let me know if you need any other info or pics. Thanks in advance!!!

    I have another Aoudad form in this bunch that I was able to match up to RMI’s G-942 form. The form in the pic has about a 7” ETN. It does have some similarities, just much smaller than the other Aoudad forms I’ve seen

    LOL, No worries on spelling, I’ve never even see half of these game animals. I do have a hartebeest in the bunch and with their long forehead he comes in at 12” ETN, much larger than the form in question.

    Ibex maybe
    It’s kinda hard to tell size proportion by pics

    Thanks to both of you! I know it’s hard to look at a picture and know (I have them in front of me and can’t figure it out). It definitely had the right measurement and similar look for an Ibex. TMT, were you able to find info on it or is that an educated guess?

    To me looks like a target for the grand kids to shoot at?

    AZ~Rich " Africa" never fails to satisfy

    Agreed the Don Holt is a Kudu. I think the other is likely a sheep of some kind, as ear butts are low.

    Ouch! LOL! My saving grace is I paid $70 for the wildabeest shoulder new, 2 LS black bear forms, a blacktail form, whitetail form, springbok form, 2 whitetail doe forms, hartebeest form and the 2 Aoudad forms. Mounted up the whitetail already which paid for the lot itself.
