    Thanks for the support. We will leaving from Dulles on June 24 Hunting w/ Kubusi Safari. The animal list (as of now) includes impala, blesbuk, springbok, warthog, wildebeest, and kudu. We are now doing our research on taxidermist, shipping, brokers, etc......so much to look at

    I think you will generally find excellent animals...for the list of animals you provided. Warthog length of tusks can vary greatly....and so can kudu horn length. But you should be fine. If Bob Puckett was logged in....I know he has a good person he could set you up with on taxidermy and shipping. You can always go to members list and email him. His taxidermy person was Umlindi Taxidermy umlindi@eezi.net.

    Well, read away you will find lots of information.
    Like the statement "list for now".
    How true. Wait until you hit the dirt and then without extreme control that will change.

    Good luck on your hunt and in your preparation.

    Welcome to AH fearnot4me! if you need any help with Taxidermist or shipping info feel Free to PM me and I will let you know how I did it, saved a bundle I'm not sure where Kubusi Safari is located I hunted on the East Cape Great Taxidermist and Great Shippers. Good luck on your hunt and keep us posted. By the way I'll be back hunting on the East Cape in June as well.
