Just wanted to say hello.

I've dreamed of the dark continent for my entire life and it looks like I'm going to make it there for the first time this June/July. I found the forum very informative and cordial for many years with a great deal more camaraderie than I've seen elsewhere.

I hope to tag along for plains game while watching some acquaintances pursue big-5 in the Tuli circle this year. I'm a fair chase, spot and stalk kind of fellow so I hope it works out alright. I'm more interested in the kill it and grill it activities than bringing home trophy mounts but I'd be just as happy to be completely beaten down by wiser prey and leave with a light headcount.

Here's to hoping for a modicum of success and a lifetime of memories.

I have a like new VC .450 I might part with. I had it built in 2013 and it has served me well. Also have a VC fitted leather trunk case for it along with the plastic case it came with. I'll take 14000 for all of it.

Hi Jody,
I have been looking for ideas on the best way to display my European mounts from Africa. I came across some of your shield work and was wondering if you would be willing to make one for me? If so, please let me know the cost. I like the shield with the two spears that you built for a member years ago. Thanks.

Nelson. Is this message a PM format. I want to send you my email, but don't know if this is the cirrect way to do it. I'm at <pappas@mtaonline.net> Send me an email with your phone and I will call you about a skull I have. I went to school in Boston and am from Bernardston in the west part of the state. Moved to Alaska in 1984 adn never looked back.
