    Here's hoping it worked.

    Glad you got pictures done before the shipment.
    Look pretty good from this distance.

    I used Moredou as well. Funny the crate looks the same. I don't think you will be disapointed. I would say my work was average. I sit in my basement every night looking at my trophies, just thinking about Africa. Love it! :D

    Can not wait to get my hands on them.I realized the work may not be world class compared to some in the states.But how they look for what they charge could not bet it.All this animals other then the blesbucks we will hunt again.The waterbuck I shoot will more then likely be the only one I ever take so having that done here in the states.Same with my sons blue wildbeast maybe the only one he takes so work done here in the states.Next on the list is to start building the pedastals to mount some of them on.Still amazes me how many animals they get in one crate.Nice that some of the horns come off to make packing easier.

    Very nice work Bill I know you guys can't wait to get them home. I got word today my mounts from last June are at the Shippers awaiting a flight out checking my email every five minutes to see if there in the air yet. LOL

    Funny you bring up a trophy room.Right after I build some pedastals to mount some of the animals on.I will be blowing out the roof and walls on my back room.Adding another 2 feet to make 10 ft walls going out another 12ft to make a 24ft by 20ft room.Plus making the roof a 10 or 12 pitch to get some height at both end walls.This hunting with my son is making alot of work for me.The good thing is years from now as I look at the trophies he has taken I will have lots of great memories to relive in my head.

    I will start a post when I start it with pics to show everyone.Maybe the longest post in history here though.Will get the walls and roof done in a few days but finishing the inside is going to take some time.I will do all the work myself with some help from my son and friends.That is as I do my reg. job fixing up other peoples houses.

    I hear you there bob.I think warthogs make great mounts.Did not think the one I took this time was big enough for full body mount.Hope to get a bigger wart and bushpig full mounted along with a nyala and bushbuck.Looking forward to seeing pictures of the mounts you have coming.
