Jim, let me be another to thank you for taking the time to write this. An amazing read! I enjoyed the fact that Joyce was always involved and hope this account after being read by my better half will solidify her participation in our upcoming safari. I have since forwarded this link to others to enoy as much as i did.

I too, would like to thank you for taking the time to write such an excellent story. What a hunt! How the hell are you going to top that one???? The thing I enjoyed the most was picking up on the relationship that you have with your wife. I too, am lucky enough to have one similar. Your story help to remind me of that....Your a lucky guy to be able to share your passion with a soul mate like that. So am I. (I actually printed it out and took it to my wife to read) Thanks again!

Thank you gentleman,
You are correct in that I realize how lucky I am that Joyce also likes anything that involves adventure and new experiences. Nothing seems to scare or bother her. We've enjoyed each others company for 38 years and I don't see that changing short of death.

I also forgot to mention my trophies are scheduled to arrive in the States in two days. That's 3 months time from the end of my hunt. Amazing job well done of dip & pack by Mike Borman of Bangweulu Taxidermy.

Jim, what a fantastic hunt. You wrote one of the best hunting reports I have ever seen. Photography was very good as well. Congrats to you and Joyce, on both you successful hunt and the 38 years(that's quite an accoplishment in itself)."That which does not kill us makes us stronger" Friedrich Nietzsche

All trophies have made it to the States and cleared import. Mike Borman of Bangweulu Taxidermy and WELLS Worldwide Logistics (brokers) teamed up to make the import go very smoothly.

As I stated in the very beginning of the hunt report I always felt it was a bit of a race against the clock as far as the Lion import was concerned but that is looking like less and less a problem for now I'm told.
