    The 1/4 million buck hunt

    I think there was an offer last year on AH for a place in Tanzania for one month all exclusive etc for around that price, maybe it was more.

    Life size Klipspringer

    Thanks for all the positive comments- I really enjoy the "art" side of taxidermy and it adds another level to my hunts when I get to work on the finished product. There's a big project about to come to completion soon that I'm super excited about. Stay tuned :)

    Hunting in Uganda

    I see that same PH (with the rubber boots) in almost all Uganda videos. Does he control most of the concessions ?

    Finished up my klipie from 2018. I built a rock and added grass trying to match the terrain where we hunted.

    Shout out to African Sporting Creations

    I stopped by their booth at DSC and took advantage of their show specials. I ended up special ordering a pair of Courtney buffalo brown with the cleat sole. Then COVID hit and the shipment was delayed through no fault of AH. I reached out to them for an update and they promptly responded and...

    Yellowstone Grizz bear drowns bull elk

    I just got back from a wonderful vacation at Jackson Hole, WY, USA for my wife's 50th BD (don't tell her I mentioned her age ;) ) We went to South Africa for my 50th (see threads https://www.africahunting.com/threads/south-africa-great-land-safaris-goes-buck-wild-pt-2.44862/page-3#post-668831...

    What makes great taxidermy?

    To specially answer your question what makes a 10- details, ALL the details. Attitude of the animal, the extra anatomical attention such as nicating membranes, carnules, inner nostril detail, coloring, rebuilding fleshy areas, repairing shrinkage etc. All those areas are VERY time consuming and...

    Anyone used Amara Taxidermy in South Africa?

    Enough to stay involved in the business side of things :cool:

    Anyone used Amara Taxidermy in South Africa?

    Yes Ryan is correct in his research but I have found every Customs agent has their own definition of finished. I think the plaque certainly helps “the look” but if you are going to mount anyway, not sure what extra charge the SA taxidermist will charge for a finished euro looking skull vs dip...

    Anyone used Amara Taxidermy in South Africa?

    Unfortunately swine and primate still have to go to USDA after clearing Customs even if they are euro only.

    Anyone used Amara Taxidermy in South Africa?

    yes it's possible but I wouldn't recommend it. The African tans are quite a bit different that the US ones and not sure a "wet" tan is even possible to get here from there without issues, mainly drying rock hard anyway. I know a few guys that have had luck with SA tanned capes but the majority...

    Anyone used Amara Taxidermy in South Africa?

    Rich- I don't know squat about them so take what I say as a very general observation. Based on the warthog mount on thier website, I'd say they are maybe a 4 out of 10. the lifesize bushpig appears to be a better mount but can't see the detail very good based on size of the picture and angle...

    Delta Update

    Delta was $2,400 from Hou to Joberg in 2018 when I checked approx 5 months out from my trip date. Honestly I have never seen a Delta flight between May-Aug any less than $1,800 and that goes back to 2007. I have "heard" of others getting it cheaper but personally have never seen it. That's why...

    Help from my Norwegian cousins!

    I highly suggest you make the trip, hunt or not. One of my most enjoyable trips was visiting The Republic of Czechoslovakia with my parents, especially seeing my dad making the trip. We went with a group tour thus had no time to sneak in a fallow or mouflon hunt but one day. Prague is a city I...

    How do you pick your mounts?

    I might be the odd guy out but I mount almost everything especially if it’s my first of a certain species. And yes that means I have 72 mounts with 8 still pending. Space is becoming an issue though so something has to break soon. I might also add I do my own taxidermy which helps and I consider...

    Care for Warthog Tusks?

    I've had just the opposite happened. My warthogs tusks have held up (most filled with bondo) and my bushpig (filled with wax bc I haven't gotten around to melting it out and filling with resin) cracked within 2 yrs. As noted above, even if filled with wax, I try to get it out and fill them...

    Bad Taxidermy

    If it's a half way decent tan (hopeful wishing given the quality so far) it can be soaked up and remounted. The faster the better before the skin begins to absorb more and more memory to the current shape. Just saying it might be worth a shot if you turns your stomach to look at it.

    I usually go to the "Latest" section and read new threads/comments since my last visit but I know that somehow I miss stuff by doing that because I see it weeks later and know I would have read it had I seen it earlier. Just as an example (and not a compliant just an observation) I posted a...

    New Aoudad Taxidermy

    I was there when he was killed and he was a STUD for sure! I had him at 30" and there were two other rams in the group I thought were 2"s shorter so I passed. Had I known he was 32" and not 30" :Arghh:

    SOUTH AFRICA: Has Anyone Hunted With Kuche Safaris?

    I've always heard good things about them. I do believe there was a similar deal a while back but maybe hunts being donated through the NRA that things went a little south over. I think Kuche withheld some trophies but it was bc they didnt receive their money for the hunt from the 3rd party. I...
