    Recent RSA taxidermists experience

    Hands down bring it home to mount. Had work done there once by one of the “ best” companies. Stuff was terrible. I strongly suggest Kanati Elite Taxidermy in Pennsylvania.

    USFWS Permit for importation of Sport Hunted Leopard - Processing times?

    In 2019 when I Harvested my leopard it was the same old story with cities permits as it is today. I pre applied before the hunt and low and behold I had the permit in 3 months. Still shocked to be honest. Hunters International handled it all.

    270 Winchester better than 7mm mag?

    As always, it depends entirely on the game your hunting, that being said I’ve killed moose, caribou, sheep, goat….well you get the picture. Shot placement and modern bullet designs have come a long way. The late great Jack O Connor would surely be a great advocate for the 270.

    What are best colors to paint walls in a trophy room?

    I realize this is an old post and I have since moved to Georgia and painted my trophy room in a green color. I realize color choice is very personal but I think the trophies look great on this background. Just my opinion. Just a few sample pictures.

    MEXICO: Sonora Mule Deer & Coues Deer Hunt Less Than 30 Days!

    I’ve hunted Sonora three times unsuccessfully, the last time in December of 20. You most definitely always have the feeling your not safe and actually we went to hunt a different ranch and as night approached my outfitter recommended we stay in a hotel until day break. That says it all.
