Granted these are blurry snap shots with a phone.

At least the hair comes up to the horns in the remount.

Again, at least the hair comes up to the horns on the remount cape.
Too bad to lose the character of the hole in the ear from the original cape.
Should have been thinking and provided some instruction on that one.
Another lesson.

Progress.

Ditto on the kudu. I know you wished it was an inch longer, but I have seen some ugly 60 inchers. Yours is magnificent. Love the hard outward flare.

Wheels, I would not trade him for another inch.


But, I'll still be chasing the big one... :)

Got the email this morning: Trophies are crated and there are a couple of odds and ends going to do some catch up in Joburg. Impala full skin is hiding somewhere.
Another couple of weeks and they should be in the air.....

Pictures have been taken before they were crated so we know they were undamaged entering the crate.

Make sure you have an insurance certificate in your hand to ensure your trophies are insured! Remember what happened to my shipment. :(

The last of the trophies from Kanana 2013 and my 2015 RSA/Moz hunts have arrived in Joburg yesterday.
Final permit authentications are taking place and final crating. Wholly cow, they may actually be in the air by the end of June 2016. Perhaps I can have a reacquaintance with my Kudu on Canada day, three years later. It would be nice.

The patience of Jobe. Enjoy all the memories again as you unpack them(y)

After some delays I chose to have the two sets of safaris shipped together. So, it was induced patience. :)


I am looking forward to seeing them and reliving some memories when they are on the wall.

Sometimes its fun "making a plan" to rearrange the trophy room! I just had to do that myself

Hello! I noticed your E Type in your avatar. What year is it? I have a '69 that looks identical, minus the wire wheels. My car has the steel rims, as I understand it,a more expensive option, but I like the wire wheel much better!
