Any of those would be a welcome addition to my "collection". I know some Americans are turned off by zebra hunting. (They look too much like a poor horsey, I guess. :doh2: :lol: ) But, I'd definitely like to display a zebra hide.

The bushpig is interesting... I must not get around much, because I don't recall seeing one before now. It looks almost like some sort of Russian / Javelina mix. (Pig with rodent features.)

Thanks for sharing!

Wow - very nice trophies and with a bow hey I like that alot. I'd be proud to have those.

I'm not one of those folks turned off by the zebras I think their hides make excellent wall art. There are several different species of wild hogs in Africa and most are very hard to get with a bow.

Wow those are some real trophies. Thanks for sharing. We have bushhogs here in PA but they mount behind a tractor.

This is a very special trophy. Bushpigs are mostly hunted at night over bait. Killing one in daylight is almost like winning the lottery.

Well done Gerhard, congrats!
