Don't use Kotoko Taxidermy!
You could also do european mounts,( if you like them, of course), save on taxidermy and get more trophies.
Thanks again for everyone's help so far, it has been extremely useful. I am very impressed with the community that has developed around this forum. What a stellar bunch of folks.
I will probably do a variety of different mounts. It will likely depend on what I wind up getting when I'm there.
Hello John: This is my first post on this site, but thought I'd give you a reply because my I, my wife, son, and a good friend have just returned from our first African safari. We used Garry Kelly Safaris and ....you guessed it.....The Hunting Consortium. I am, by no means, an expert on the subject, but since you sound like you're planning a similar venture, I might be of some help. First and foremost...DO IT. We had a fantastic time hunting in the Mkhuze Game Reserve near Kruger Park and ZuluWaters Game Reserve in Natal Midlands. Garry Kelly set us up with 2 great PHs...excellent guides, knowledgeable about the animals, and great fun to be with. Bob Kern 's operation at the Hunting Consortium planned our 3-part trip with "military precision"...everything was organized for us, and they were most patient with all of our "first-timer" questions. I think you have picked 2 winners for your first safari. I don't want to bore the other good folks on this forum, so if you would like to talk further with me, feel free to send an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org or call me at 410-287-5086. Good luck with your trip, and don't forget...planning is half the fun.
