      CA,
      Need some help. I want to reach out to survey the landscape on anyone in my home state of Texas who may have nice set of ivory tusks for sale. Building a trophy room as we speak. However: I know this is taboo with many unsavory characters trying to make a buck. With that said, what would be the best way to approach IYO. Again, just looking for some advise on how to frame a good tasteful reach out.

        I am waiting for tusks from elephant #3 & 4 to arrive from Mozambique. May be interested in selling a set. But don’t know if the US government would consider coming from there or from Canada which is where I am.

        @Huntres you can not legally sell ivory in the first place. Second you can not bring ivory from Mozambique into the US even if you have a CITIES permit.

      Thank you for your welcome. I have about 22 dogs and try to hunt ever weekend if possible. We have a big problem with Bush pig. The most that we have shot in one day is 23. I have hade a couple of close calls with the pigs they can be very dangerous if there are piglets around. There sight is not that good bud nothing wrong with there smell and hearing.

        Yes sir wild pigs in the states are the same way. Momma pigs are very angry when anyone is about! Sure would have liked to have been the the day you got 23 pigs.

        With those boots you can walk long distances and leap over tall buildings. At least you had the coins to make the purchase!

      The food was horrible and we only had wild game twice in 14 days. We had so much money left over that we paid for the taxidermy and shipping to the US. We are still waiting for our trophies. I have only read good things about pawprint safaris and enjoyed Pieter when we had the pleasure of being with him.
      I did not want to post a negative comment, but just wanted to be assured that everything is legit.

      We went with Pieter in August 2014. We were quite disappointed. We were bowhunters and most of the time he put us with John who knew nothing about bowhunting. I got a nyala and a springbok, my husband got a warthog, hartebeast and eland. The only time things went well were when Pieter was actually with us.
