My hunt in August/September of '18 with @KMG Safaris was originally to be completed around a year later by Relive Taxidermy in Port Elizabeth. Paul got a bit backed up and it completed in March this year. Then all shipping got shut down for well known reasons. Now typically shipping to me in Alaska is via Delta Air Cargo. It goes from RSA to Atlanta and onward to Alaska since Delta comes on up to us. No Delta flights meant is went via Turkish Air to San Fran, then Seattle, then a boat trip up. Yes is was more expensive than usual.

Anyway. The box arrived and all but one is on the wall. Here we go.

Thanks for sharing! Did you get either of your kudu from KMG and any chance you'll be writing a hunting report on your experience? A trip to the east cape is definitely on my five year plan.

Both of my kudu are from my first trips in Namibia in '13 and '16. I did see a fine Eastern Cape kudu taken by another client the day I took my duiker with KMG. I have a report of my hunt in the Eastern Cape with KMG, just look on posts I made. Marius will definitely work hard to get you one if that is your interests. I also suggest looking into some touring, the cape is an amazing and diverse area.

Thanks Ryan. Nyala, bushpig and other various PG would be on the trip as well as a trip to Addo. Appreciate the report.

Good Stuff. I have a bunch of trophies with Paul at Relive Taxidery from my 2019 trip. Looking forward to their arrival as well.

@Still alive and @GeoffB, from this work I can recommend Relive. Paul and the crew did good work at a reasonable price and packed it well for the trip back. Communications in country when I had them dropped off were immediate and emails from the US were answered within a couple/few days. That is to be expected, he's busy.

Ok, got the eland up. My friend says it's about the only thing to make my Dall sheep look small, and that isn't right. The sheep may move.
Ryan about the only two NA animals that wouldn't look small compared to the Eland is a big Alaskan moose or a Big Bison bull. I think the two together provide a scale of size that most folks won't get till they see it in person. And you can never take away from the majesty of either of the animals.

Mule deer and Colorado elk seasons almost done! Hunters driving farm roads, looking for racks, their PH driving them along, I ask that you not pull into my drive. The buck behind me, on the boundary line of the GMU somehow knows. The hunter laughs, I would invite you in to see my Searcy rifles but social distancing prevails, darkness arrives and the buck slides away into secret tree grove...

Ellwood Epps has 1 box of 25-20 in stock. Look them up on the web. They are located in Orilla Ontario.

Many thanks for re formatting my article for the forum

I served my time in both the bush and during the bush war

I hope it did it justice

Education is where it is at - without it the wild places are history

You - sir - are well placed to make a difference
