    Finally got to see my mounts

    One thing I noticed in the Taxidermy shop we visited, was the complete lack of ability to paint, and the fact that they black the horns. I only saw one shop mind you, but that shop did reasonable work except for that. I am not sure why they always black the horns. It does not look normal to me...

    Finally got to see my mounts

    Well, you could be like me, and not have your animals after waiting for 2 years. If you can, look at your trophies and remember the incredible experience you had. That is the point anyway. I think those mounts look fine, and I think you are right to wait until you get them to really judge them...

    SOUTH AFRICA: Has Anyone Hunted With Kuche Safaris?

    Andrew, as my brother mentioned above, he and I hunted with Kuche a couple of years ago. We decided o Koos after meeting him in Harrisburg. No nonsense, no pressure, just fair pricing, honest expectations, and the promise that we would have a great time. Camp was clean and well kept. All the...

    Who is your preferred taxidermist?

    Yes sir, really glad for you! Still hoping for the best on our mounts.

    Who is your preferred taxidermist?

    Thank you Bivy for your perspective. After reading this forum for a couple of years, I believe that no one here is more concerned about their mounts than about a mans health. Even so, no one can be blamed for their concern, especially after being told that our mounts were almost finished , and...

    Hunting boots for Northern Limpopo province South Africa

    Comfort and quiet trump name brand and style every day. Find a boot with as non-aggressive sole as possible, and find one that makes you smile when you put it on. Sore feet on a dream hunt could ruin the trip of a lifetime. I tried on over 50 pair of boots until I found the Keen Targhee mid...

    What do you do when your taxidermist wont respond

    I am glad that you at least have a way to resolve the problem. I am still hopeful that I will get my animals without additional delay. Good luck!!

    What do you do when your taxidermist wont respond

    I guess I am trying to justify not making a change. I just hate to go down that road.

    What do you do when your taxidermist wont respond

    Damn, I am sorry. What a crappy end to an incredible hunting experience. I have been in business for myself for going on 30 years now. Saying that someone is an artist, therefore cannot run a business is total BS. All it takes is a little attention to detail. Funny that Dennis is the best of the...

    What do you do when your taxidermist wont respond

    Do I understand correctly that this thread is two years plus old? tedthorn, you must be a very patient person. I am almost exactly one year in with the same person and have the same issues. Now I am wondering what to do. I don't mind waiting, but another year is excessive.

    Traveling to Limpopo

    Make sure you don't arrive on a national holiday. We did, and then drove through bumper to bumper traffic for the next 7 hours. It was kind of comical though, to see 3 lanes of cars and trucks expand to 6 lanes, with most driving in the grass median, then the real bottleneck came when they all...

    Black Bear outfits here in the States...

    I second this. We did a boat based stalking hunt a few years ago,and it was truly a great experience. The stalks were difficult, and bears can scent you it seemed like miles away.

    SOUTH AFRICA: NB Safaris In SA - The Good, The Bad & The Ugly (Hunt Report)

    Really glad this worked out for the client, and for the outfitter. I followed this report with interest because I am a businessman and have dealt with this kind of thing a few times. I learned quickly that the best way out of a bad situation is to end it quickly if possible. Neil, I am glad you...

    SOUTH AFRICA: Kuche Safaris Via Bayete Group

    I enjoyed a great 10 days at Kuche, with my brother. My PH, Pieter was incredible. Khomu our tracker taught me what a tracker really was. Looks like you all had a great hunt! Certainly have some incredible trophies to share with your family. The memories will hold you for a while, but as with...

    The Difference Between An Agreeable & A Difficult Client From A Professional Hunter Perspective...

    Well recounted story. Sounds like most of us have encountered that type of person. The world is full of them. I learned from very hard experience that the best way to deal with them is be quiet and give them a wide berth. Thank you for the story. I too would enjoy reading more of your exploits!!

    Great report, and as has been said before, nice to hear the positive side of HH. I am still amazed at how almost everyone that goes to Africa to hunt, comes back crazy for more. Good for you, and some amazing trophies, which they all were. Cheers:D Beer Draft:
