@Red Leg Good thing there are only 10 Commandments or you might have some explaining to do........
I think "thou shall not covet thy fellow hunter's fireplace" was number 11 or 12.

Very nice Dave! What a splendid room! Only thing it is missing is @tarbe @me and @Macallen18!
A little longer drive than meeting at "Taste of Texas" but we can put together a plan.

I think I see some bare spots, lol!


Very nice Dave!

Scaffolding and/or scissor lift will be required to safely reach the upper tier. I've maxed out what I can do with a 10 ft step ladder. I'll have a red stag to add towards the end of this year and who knows what the future will bring. I'm going to be pretty selective.

You might have to move the Eland to a new place and put the Red Stag in its place:)

Nice trophy room. I like that vaulted ceiling adds plenty of room for the Long Horn/big antlered animals.

Know what you mean about picking up your crate, I picked up my 2018 trophies from Coppersmith last week.

@Bhfs300 , Tom........I'm actually keeping the wall over the fireplace as an "African Wall." If I ever get a Cape Buffalo, I plan to move the Eland up higher and the buff will go in it's place.

The plan for the Red Stag is to go on the opposite end of the room from the fireplace, the "TV Wall" or currently the "North American Wall. The spot currently reserved for the NZ Red Stag is marked with the red "X".

The pic of the Corona and the drill made me feel like I was there and enjoying the excitement. I know what you mean about the screws. My Zim crate was so well put together it took nearly an hour to take it apart!
I am rolling the dice with a couple African taxidermists. I’m just tired of waiting 18 months on everything after a year in some cases of getting skins back. Your trophy room is really looking nice. I like the pair of bushbuck and warthogs!

I have really high ceilings in my trophy room/guest lodge so I have to rent a scissor lift to do most things. I’ve found the smaller ones are very inexpensive to rent here. It’s a pain to move furniture etc but I just plan to do it once a year. In between times of mounts come in they just have to sit on the floor a while

I hate to bother you....I own 2 of your books including British bore rifle. I was hoping you might have more 10 bore loads. For the heavier and later rifles. Any help would be appreciated.

I hope your hunting season has started off well. I am coming to Namibia for the 7th time in late April of 2022. I am bringing two friends who have never hunted outside of the USA. I have several questions, but before I write them all, I will wait to see if you receive this. Please give a shout................................best regards.........................Bill...............Idaho, USA
