    NEW ZEALAND: Tahr Hunt May 2023

    Congrats! Your pictures bring back fond memories of my Tahr hunt. I also appreciate that you hunted without the aid of a helicopter, much more rewarding in my opinion. NZ is hard to beat when it comes to hunting and touring. Great place to enjoy a couple weeks resetting the circuits.

    Cull Hunt Examples

    Unless you are looking for something specific, ie ...your "Trophy" animal, cull hunting can be just as great of an adventure as Trophy hunting. In fact, if you are looking for a safari with more trigger time, less stress, and are not concerned with Taxidermy, cull hunting may fit the bill. I...

    How do you determine what to have mounted and what type of mount?

    I'm all about adventure/experiences and I struggle justifying the cash outlay for any taxidermy, which reduces my opportunity for further adventures. I do have 2 wall ped. mounts from my first safari and a few rugs/skins (Zebra, Hartebeest, Wildebeest, Impala). To this day I regret paying the...

    Best Wet Weather/Mountain Boots?

    Others here with more experience likely, but my go to mountain boot is the Crispi Nevada. I also have a pair of Danner Highground insulated, for late season hunts. Both have been very comfortable, worn well and will likely be purchased again when the time comes. Good luck in your search.

    Real Africa experience or luxury accommodation

    Ranked in order of importance: 1-Good free range hunting and fairly priced. 2-reference #1 3-see #2... Much further down the list are accommodations/ food/ drink. The only hitch in my hunting giddy-up occurs when the Mrs accompanies me...need a bit more than h20/freeze dried meals and out-house..

    Free Range Barbary Sheep Backpack Hunt South Africa

    This is the type of hunting I really enjoy and am looking for, but the cost seems a bit high. Different country/species, but my wilderness Tahr (also considered pests) hunt(out of tents) last year in NZ was half the price. Additional animals if happened upon(Tahr/Chamois/Stag) were 1/4 of what...

    Which animal makes the most impressive taxidermy mount?

    The recently revived post requesting euro mount pics got me thinking. Most of my mounts are euros, but one animal I would open the wallet to have hide on form taxi. completed on would be a big bull Elk. I have often thought a big Bull Elk, more than any other animal when well taxidermied...

    Euro Mount Displays

    I have a couple mounts up, but the majority are euros I clean up myself. They take up much less space and save $$. If I kill a big majestic Bull Elk in the next 5 years or so, I could see coughing up the cash for a wall ped. Outside of that, I plan on euros and pics.

    2020 Alaska Caribou hunt

    Rick, if you need/want a second let me know. This is a hunt I have wanted to do for sometime, but just haven’t pulled the trigger. Have done a little research. 40 mile and Tok air are the best I have found, but unless one is a repeat customer or extremely lucky and finds a cancellation it is...

    Alaska - Halibut / Salmon guide recommendations

    Some great options mentioned above. You might also look at Alaska Sportfishing Expeditions out of Ketchikan. I have fished with them 8-10x over the past 15 years. They have 3 different set-ups to choose from... Cedars "lodge" is in town if you want charters for Salomon/Halibut/rockfish...

    NEW ZEALAND: A Short Hunt, Some Epic Fly Fishing & A Little Touring On The South Island NZ

    Fire, I too just returned from a hunt with Peter. I believe I followed yours, although mine was a wilderness Tahr hunt. I hunted for just four days and the rest of the three weeks we spent touring. NZ is an amazingly beautiful country with welcoming friendly people. Sounds like your time...
