As you arrive in Harare airport there are rwo full body mounts, a buffalo and a rhino. Ind in departures a full lion male. The lion is encased in glass so he is still fully intact. The buffalo has had his ears a little scuffed by kids, but considering the number of people around him he looks good. The rhino is fully intact except for several scratch markes on the horn, exposing fibfe glass fortunately!
well done to the airport people though, I must find out who put the mounts there and thank them.

There are a few but I like the pedestals. I built them for the animal that is on them. I had my buf on the wall but it was over a door and too high to be noticed. I had no space big enough for the eland on a wall so he had to go on the floor. I have some wall space left if I go on another hunt.
All of those mounts are very very nice but that full body springbok is too cool. Will have to do one like that one day!

Hi Bob, how's things going in Wyong?. Down your way a couple of years back but haven't been in NSW since Ebor for the fishing. just getting over some nasty storms up here in Qld, seeing the sun for the first time in a few days. I'm going to NZ in the spring and hope to clean up a few buns while there and perhaps shake the spiders out of my old .303LE (currently owned by my BIL). Cheers Brian

Did you purchase your hunt at a US SCI fundraiser?

Heard you may have load data for the 500 Jeffery,.....any info would be appreciated. Was thinking 535gr, but already had a response that the 570gr would be a better way to go, not sure why.
