    I hope these are from the first safari.
    I they are from the second....? Whoa.

    If he starts putting them out on the concession pre-mounted like that it might reduce the fun of the hunt.

    Congrats on your mounts.

    HA HA very funny. To clarify, these are from my second hunt with Louis. First was May of 2011 ( impala, blue wildebeest, nyala, waterbuck & gemsbock: 7 day hunt).

    That is a good turn around time.
    I hope your trophies show up safe and sound and you get to enjoy them for a long time.

    Hi Hagar

    The Taxidermy was done by Pieter van Bergen (my brother) owner of African Memories Taxidermy.

    He works closely with myself and a few other outfitters to provide good quality work and a fast turn around time.

    You can contact him at:africanmemoriestaxidermy@gmail.com

    Please don't hesitate to contact me with any questions or concerns?

    Best Regards
    Louis van Bergen
