    I hope everything is exactly how you want it when you open that crate.
    Look forward to the good news.

    Picked up the crate last night and started to unpack. The crate was packed very well, no wear spots on any of the mounts unlike my last shipment from Limpopo. Impressed so far. I have no idea where I am going to hang most of the trophies. My wife tells me she may need to go house shopping now:E Horrified:. I can't afford this African addiction. Anyone here offer AA(African Addiction) counselling? IMG_20171025_133959.jpg IMG_20171025_134515.jpg

    If you find someone, send me their number. I'm in the same boat. I finished my first trip this August and am expecting my crate in July or Aug. 2018. Already planning my next trip for 2019. If you don't find the counselor, I need to start looking for a rich relative with heart trouble. HA HA

    The first thing out of the crate, springbok slam pedestal mount. Pretty happy with the way it turned out. for some reason my wife tells me I can't leave it in the dining room. IMG_20171026_060255.jpg

    Couple more pictures, so far I am pretty impressed with the condition of the mounts from shipping as well as the taxidermy work. I hope to have time on the weekend to put some more of the mounts up this weekend.
