    Default Hello to everyone out there......

    Lets see where to start. My name is Joe, I have been hunted since I was around 14. I did 23 years in the US Army, I am now retired living in upstate NY.
    I am a full time taxidermist having fun and doing something that I enjoy doing. My wife is still currently in the military and has about 3 years left until she
    can retire.

    I have hunted quite a few animals in the states and Canada and now want to poke around a little in Africa.

    Thank You
    Joe

    Welcome to AH.
    If you start poking around here you will be in Africa sooner than you think.

    Good luck.

    I do not know if I am allowed to post pictures, I am new to the forum and do not want to step on any toes. I joined because I like doing research before I pull the trigger so do not want to get a beat down the first day.

    I posted two of the first African that I mounted, I bought the cape and horns. I did not feel right trying to learn the anatomy on someones trophy of a lifetime.

    All moderators if I am not allowed to post a picture of the work please remove it and I meant no harm!!!!

    Thanks
    Joe

    Posting pictures getting you in trouble.
    NOT if they have anything to do with hunting and Africa.
    The more the merrier.
    Everyone knows, my first call is always where are the pictures? Please post them along with your hunting reports.

    Hotfire - will not be going to harrisburg, I am in Italy right now spending some time with the Mrs, she is stationed over here and we have a four year old daughter so I try and spend two months here and two months in NY. It is hard when the family is split up.

    Bobpuckett - Thank You.
