A black one makes a beautiful full body mount. I had a black one and wanted to mount it but a "sweet young thing" talked me out of it because she wanted to mount it. Come to find out she only had the hide tanned. Guess the price was prohibitive. Sure busted my bubble. LOL.
First one I ever saw was near the NCSU beef operation near Butner and it was mostly black. I told my buddy I thought it was somebody's dog that got loose. Since that one I've seen more than I can count and that's too many. Shot one years ago near where I saw that first one.
