    You can have Trophy Pro SA make you a pair from your buff... We had a pair made for everyone in the hunting party from the back skin. They came out really nice!

    We are very pleased to share that Matrix has successfully put his Cape buffalo in the salt after 6 hard days of hunting.... And, what a spectacular bull it is! I do not want to steal his thunder, so I will let Mr. Terry (aka Matrix) share his full report and story upon his return. Here is a short clip of the celebration!
