    Always a great feeling to get the call. Michael at Coppersmith gave me a ring and said my crate was cleared thru and at their warehouse in Elk Grove, IL. Coppersmith has always been so easy to communicate with and truly a pleasure working with them. I especially loved when he said "Its big....you may want to bring the trailer" :LOL:

    At 8 feet long and 4.5 feet wide and tall, at 650 pounds its like a big treasure chest to me...

    I'm down in NC and will be driving up next week to grab the crate and open it at my dads before I head back down to NC.

    Yep, finished mounts. 10 shoulder mounts and a few Europeans and skins.

    My brother and dad are uncrating as we speak. I'll be driving up this weekend to load up my portion.

    I keep sing the Willy Wonka song in my head as I'm getting updates while at work..."Can't you see, I'm in a world of pure imagination..."

    Congrats! Had a crate that big last month for a Giraffe floor pedestal and a few other critters. Grandkids are now using it for a fort/hunting blind.
