    Wow, you had a awesome hunt, the trophy quality was incredible! Deb's steenbok was HUGE and so was yours. What a eland!!! Deb got a super nice impala and kudu. And you know you wanted that warthog (lol)!

    Bob, Some great trophies and very fond of the African Porcupine which always makes a spectacular addition to a trophy room. Also it always makes me happy to see members wearing their AH cap on their hunting safari!

    Very happy for you and Deb. What a fantastic hunt, going to be a nice taxidermy bill but oh well, it's worth it. I hope these memories stay with you for a long time brother. Congrats to the both of you.
