Great to hear that everything is working out- looking forward to your report!

Remember- it's all about the experience- the taxidermy is just one way of memorializing that experience! We just got back from our first safari- I can tell you now that nothing compares!

Officially one week to go! Funny how 7 months went by like lightning but this week is going to seem to take forever. ...

LOL. A lot like the "watched pot never boils" thing. Just hang on, Africa's going to be under your feet before you know it. Good luck Albert.

The other issue I think I will have is the 9 days in Africa will go by in the blink of an eye. I will be back on the plane and suddenly think- WTF?!

Been there ... enjoy the whole journey ... even the sleepless nights. I wake up nights recalling my first safari a little over two years ago ... so you have that to look forward to.

Cheers to Game4Africa!

Good luck!!! There should be some good hunting reports here in a couple of weeks! I was going to try to do a daily post, but no internet, no wifi, so it will be one big report when I get back. I look forward to reading everyone's report though when I get back.

Actually I'm not bringing that much, Charlie. I have most of what I'm taking in a pile, which I will pack with the rest of the stuff that has to wait til it's time to go, on monday. I may forget something small but I'm not stressing over it.

I have a like new VC .450 I might part with. I had it built in 2013 and it has served me well. Also have a VC fitted leather trunk case for it along with the plastic case it came with. I'll take 14000 for all of it.

Hi Jody,
I have been looking for ideas on the best way to display my European mounts from Africa. I came across some of your shield work and was wondering if you would be willing to make one for me? If so, please let me know the cost. I like the shield with the two spears that you built for a member years ago. Thanks.
