    European mount taxidermy questions

    I have done two safaris and just had dip and ship done of most of the skulls. I only had to bleach one skull. I used the wall mounts that you can get at your sporting goods store. One I made my own plaque so I could include the arrows used with one of the skulls. As long as you don’t have any...

    Delta seats

    Sorry the photo you showed I thought the front seats were business class. What I was referring to are the seats in Premium select. They are the section at the top of your photo clip. We flew back from Australia in that section and it sure made the 15 hours more pleasant.

    Delta seats

    The comfort + are recliners so your legs will be on the foot rests. I would say you might want to be back a row so you would have the handy room under the seat in front of you. TV and table come out of the arm rests.

    Tanning vs Dip/Pack

    On my last safari I had one hide a red Hartebeest done there since everyone said it would be less expensive. The rest of the four trophies were just dip and ship. It took more than a year to get things back to the states. It was all about the tanned skin they said there was an electric rationing...

    Africa is just not for me

    I wanted to get my wife to Africa to see what I did but she wouldn’t go on a hunt so I got my first PH who is now on his own to give us a Photo Safari since I knew he was into photography. That was January 2020 for that May-June and it didn’t happened. We pushed it to 2021 still no travel. We...

    I would put in a vote for the 300 WM that is what I took on my rifle Safari and it did great. I agree with Aaron N. I now also have a 375 Ruger but only have shot paper with it.

    Photo Question?

    Might not be correct but most of the photos where the faces are blurred out are when the Safari company is posting the photo. They probably feel they need to have permission to post a photo of a client???

    Guardian Of The Hunters Dream With LIFE-FORM TAXIDERMY
