    Default SOUTH AFRICA: Trophy's back from South Africa

    Four days shy of one year we received our Trophy's back from South Africa. We went with Liam Urry Safaris on a trip of a life time. I am sure my son will be posting some pics next week of his Trophy's.



    The taxidermy was done by Black Bear Taxidermy out of Kimberley South Africa. They were great to work with the price was fair and they did an excellent job. There was no damage to any mount in either crate every mount was very well packed and supported.




    We used SBS Logistics for shipping. Very easy to work with.




    We used Coppersmiths to clear the shipment in San Francisco. I will use someone else the next time or clear my own.








    Yes my wife is very understanding. A little on the small side Gemsbok from New Mexico. But a hunt with a lot of memories. Nine days of hunting and I was very happy to get him.

    Very nice Hagar, love the zebra rug! As for trophy clearance I highly recommend Hunter's International, they're in the bay area.

    Good looking critters. Never apologize for the animals you take, especially the hard earned ones.
    The journey is the reward.

    Thanks for the kind words. This was my once in a lifetime trip. So yes as you all know I can't wait to get back. No such thing as once.

    Great animals. Looks like you had a wonderful hunt! I also agree with the earlier post, you should be happy with that Gemsbok from NM with no exceptions, he's nice and those hunts I hear are really fun. I'm looking to do one myself. Great trophies throughout your room, man!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Beautiful trophies. That wildebeest looks positively wicked! Will you post the story of the hunt (or have you already, in which case I apologize)?

    timbear,
    Please don't apologize. We did post it but was back on 10/21/2011. Look in the search box for South Africa trip report with Liam Urry Safaris (lots of pics)

    Royal27,

    Thanks. I have to do all my tall horned animals on pedestals. It takes up a little more floor space but they are my favorites because you are so up close and personal. My wife is not a hunter but loves animals.

    Well it took more than a week but I finally made time to get the pictures of my mounts up. They are all from this same trip! You can see them here:
