    Art Lambert II and Charlie Austin met up today at the SCI Kansas City Expo! A great afternoon was had talking to outfitters and taxidermists! It's always a great day when you get to talk hunting and plan for the next safari with a fellow AH member.

    I should have checked to see if any one form AH was going to meet up. I drove up Sunday morning with my wife to meet with Somerby Safaris to finalize a leopard and buff hunt for 2017. Met the guys for breakfast at the Holiday Inn and ran into my taxidermist, Jim Guist.

    Custom looks like I will be using your Taxidermist! I spent a good while talking to him at the show!
    Next time there is a show all AH members within driving distance should plan a get together.!

    Jim is a great taxidermist. His shop is in Clever, down near me in Springfield. His "museum" is something to behold. He has all of his personal trophies on display, including all of the Big 5. He also has a full body elk and much more. If you are ever down to meet with him look me up.

    We should plan to meet up at the next meeting or show. I was there both days. My wife was helping with the Silent Auction.

    I am using Jim as well for full mount lioness from 2015 safari.

    Agree on the meet-up. I am a member of the KC chapter but don't make most meetings as I am a few hours away.

    Jim will do a great job on the lioness. I just booked a leopard and another buffalo for 2017. I'll have Jim do a full mount on the leopard - not sure how I'll have the buff done. It seems I have waited too long for a lion.

    Thanks! It was by far my most exciting hunt to date. My only DG hunt to date. It does get in your blood, though, hence my plans for 2017.
