Rosella at SSI worked her magic and got a supervisor at USDA involved. Good news @gizmo Erick will pick up my crate possibly Wednesday. Lets get this project rolling!

Crate is is picked up and safe. I will inventory it this weekend!

It's stored in my garage!

Don't worry @johnnyblues, my dogs don't chew on rawhide very often, just when it's cold out...

I bought some bullets from Rimshot and he is good to trade with!
Greetings all! I've been a hunter for 50 years, but only now planning a trip to Africa. I was fortunate and successfully bid on a couple hunts for plains game in SA later this year and next. Also a rare Native Texas (5th generation) and USMC Vet. Hunt safe y'all!
