I shot a very nice dark bull with Pawprint Safaris a couple of years ago. Took some time to get it back and when I did, I did not clue in right away it was the wrong giraffe. The one I received was waaay smaller, the hair is missing in large patches, the rest is scruffy. I have checked photos and hair patterns and there is no doubt it is not mine. I really wanted my giraffe for the upcoming trophy room, and now every time I see the one I received it leaves a bad taste in my mouth.
Not sure if I can make it back to Africa, but if I do I think I may have to try for another giraffe, just to set things right.
The pattern indicated is not on the small hide I received. Of course neither Pawprint or Africa Alive Taxidermy - Jan Els, is around any more.

We are very sorry to hear that you did not receive your original hide Rick, that is a seriously beautiful black/dark giraffe bull and one to be very proud of!

Did you know that the "horns" on top of a giraffes head are actually called ossicles or ossicones! This black bull had some exceptionally thick ones which we are sure he put to good use fighting off rival males. Okapi interestingly enough also have them.

Wow, those are soooo cool! Maybe someday I’ll convince the little lady to let me add one of these gorgeous trophies to the trophy room! Stunning.

I do not know where this video was posted, but I would very much like to see it.

Hello Milan, I just watched your video on disassembling/reassembling the CZ 550. I have spent days looking for something like this. I now have no reservations taking apart my rifle. I like to do this with all my guns so I understand them "inside and out". Thank you very much for the information. It is greatly appreciated.
