@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

Hello, saw that you want the Jeffries brass. So you an either send a USPS money order or paypal i guess, which ever works for you is fine with me at this point. If you want to us Paypal use [redacted] friends and family and dont mention gun stuff at all or they will go bananas! LOL!

Let me know what you want to do.
Thanks,
Rob

Hey Jim, I read that you’re from Dequincey and just returned from Africa. I’m from Lake Charles and went there in April. What outfitter did you use and would you share your experience and pics? I won our trip to Kuche through DU.

Hello! Nice rifle! I have IDENTICAL rifle in 375 H&H so i was wondering what gunsmith did the work on it? Appreciate it and if you decide there is anything you are willing to take in partial trade, let me know. I have quite a few pistols, long guns and sxs & o/u shotguns as well.

Let me know if you are looking for anything in particular.

Thanks,
Rob
