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...
Sorry the photo you showed I thought the front seats were business class.
What I was referring to are the seats in
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.
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.
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...
I don’t have a left handed 375 Ruger but I do have a 375 Ruger that I got to go back to Africa for a Cap Buffalo.
I also got a Leapold 1-5 for it.
i haven’t made it back to Africa and I have shot some 300 grain through it.
When I found some 275 grain shells I went from a zero at 100 to one...
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.
I was 20-200 in one eye 20-300 in the other.
I had LASIK surgery on both eyes 23 years ago. The next next morning I had 20-19 vision in both eyes. I could see a Canadian Honker in the valley below the friends house we went to. At 69 my vision is still 20-20 the only problem is as I got...
And lastly, as an added bonus, I am interested in finding some Norma 300 win mag brass (and even .30 cal Swift A Frames).
I have these 300 Win Mag.
They are are all once shot since I don’t reload.
One of the Barns boxes has 12 the rest are full.(312 total)
mare you still looking?
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???
In January 2020 at the Denver Sports show I talked to Roche of Roche Safari since he was my PH on my first Safari in 2012 about doing a photo Safari with him.
We booked a time in April that year. Then the Covid pandemic blew up and that was changed to 2021.
We still couldn’t do it then pushed...
I put these in a thread about trophy rooms before.
But here are a couple photos of my room it is 16’ on this end.
the room has a 6’ bump out behind the bar.
The room is 28’ long but to the end of the bar is 23’.
I take a lot of photos so that space could be more trophies. A couple...
My last trip I had four trophies one a red Hartebeest that I had the hide tanned there.
The rest was just dip and shipped.
With a bunch of excuses like the electricity was being rationed Etc it took nine months to get the tanning done then a month and a half to get it shipped.
For me the tanning...
Didn’t read this whole thread.
Did you find one yet?
I have a good story and a Ruger M77 Hawkeye Guide Rifle is n 375 Ruger.
Went to SA in 2014 and thought I had to go back for a Cape Buffalo. Put the money into the above rifle and then got Leupold to make me a custom VX-3 1.5 X 5 X 20...
Here is my story.
My father in-law came to Wyoming to hunt for a Pronghorn. Since I wasn’t a hunter I got a local license so maybe one of them could get a second trophy.
When I was introduced to my fathers friend (local Game Warden) I didn’t say anything about having one of them shooting a...
My Avatar is a photo of what will be my best trophy. A Red Stag from NZ 11-13 454 7/8. My name I have used since I was in WY. We shot NFAA there and my group was Bow Hunter Free Style. In a target shoot a top score was 300. I shot several tie breaker was X count. Best was 60 my best was 52...
Put in for three tags. Picked up points in deer and moose but drew a tag in area 007 and all that included for elk.
I am getting older and I have been trying for a ranch hunt(7 years) but since I haven’t got a tag since 2016 through all the points into an elk bow hunt in an area close to me...
Looks like your hunting knowledge doesn’t match your Bronze Supporter.
I would say you were just bored in April 2020 in VA and wanted to check something out you could buy your way into.
Glad you are supporting AH!
A whole bunch of photo’s of work that you have done.
The taxidermist I used had the same thing but once they got your trophies they had a bunch of workers from the owner to rookies working on the mounts.
To me it seemed the best taxidermist would be working on the multi full body mounts and who...
Some of you are saying you can’t find a COVID shot.
We were sitting and hoping our medical place would send us an email to come in and make an appointment for a shot.
we found this place and if it is working it has allmost every state listed under it. I had three places in 30 miles from our...
With all your fake news statements and your Bridge you want to sell. Maybe you should read some new info.
COVID-19 vaccination may not be required to board domestic flights, however; Delta's CEO, Ed Bastian, told the Today show that may be something exclusive to international travel, “whether...
Just for fun:
I think you may have something here.
Instead of the Big five
Maybe it should be called the Big Ten

if this isn’t OK. Just delete it but here are Shakka’s posts in this thread and if it is just here because he wants to see himself try to keep this going I think it isn’t OK either.
Dennis is not a friend of mine but I was very impressed with his work and after I had my first...
Not sure if this has already been on here it is from last year but it might be something to try.
He now has new contact info firstname.lastname@example.org. Please forward any and all emails that have details of mount information and contact information to this email address.
Have you ever done or tried to get a Ranching For Wildlife tag?
I have drawn two of them in the past 15 years at different ranches. Drawing the tag gets you permission to be on the ranch both were on foot from the gate one let me bring a friend with me I hunted the whole period and came...
If you want it to be a DIY hunt you wouldn’t have any sure thing on 360+ but the west side of Colorado is mostly over the counter tags are you looking at bow or rifle? The draw ranch tags in colorado are not land tags that a land owner can let you hunt on his land they are a draw tag so a...
If this looks like it is going to happen I would pick some days around a new moon if they have them. Bow hunting would be best in the dry time I was there the first part of October before the rain season started and that was great for bow hunting.
My second safari to SA was won at a sporting show. I got 7 days two animal Impala Worthog this rang a bell because they were the two I didn’t get on my first trip. The form I filled out at the booth I said I wanted to get a Nyala and Red Hartebeest what they want is for you to be the first time...
