Southern Warthog – When it comes to Warthog’s, this heavy tusk trophy has it all. The hogs sparse hair and tough skin make for a challenging job to mount correctly. The Ivory tusks often crack in time, so I always mold and cast reproduction tusks for these mounts. The Ivory is returned to the customer with the mount. The warts offer a special challenge as well. I cut them open and remove the gristle. Proper eye wrinkles are sculptured as well as custom ear liners. A special finishing process is used to tint the skin. Hogs are dirty!, so I coat my mounts with artificial dust that adds an often overlooked finish to the finished mount.
