Any trophy elephant bulls?
Yes but you can’t bring back the ivory right now. Some will be hunting bulls in the Omay and they will have a good hunt but just have to store the ivory for now.

Going there myself next year. PM sent
Deposits paid and flights booked! We're headed to the Omay for elephant and leopard in late June/early July.

We will be hunting with Dalton and York Safaris, a new outfit, booked through Michelle @ Buchanan Hunts.

A full report will follow on our return!

Trophy Consultants International (TCI) in Zim does an amazing job on replica tusks. The ones I’ve seen are almost impossible to distinguish from real unless you pick them up.

I’ve been there before and they have done work for me. I did not realize they did replica tusks. Thanks.

TCI does a great job on replicas. They did 50 plus pounders for edge and they came out very lifelike. Not cheap but cool

Do you know much about their process? Do they take a mold or just rely on measurements? Average cost?

I've got a taxidermist here in the USA that makes replicas based off photos and measurements.

I think the replicas were done with measurements and tons of pictures. I’m a little foggy on price since I didn’t write the check but the replicas were perfect. Shipping the damn things were the most and I’m thinking it was something OVER 4 thousand to reach Florida all in. Still small price for priceless memories. I’m a little afraid with our political nonsense getting real tusks in USA is a memory

Thanks for the info. I might just get them done here in the US to avoid shipping costs

Hi Bob, how's things going in Wyong?. Down your way a couple of years back but haven't been in NSW since Ebor for the fishing. just getting over some nasty storms up here in Qld, seeing the sun for the first time in a few days. I'm going to NZ in the spring and hope to clean up a few buns while there and perhaps shake the spiders out of my old .303LE (currently owned by my BIL). Cheers Brian
A couple pictures of the sable i chased for miles in Mozambique, Coutada 9!! We finally caught up to him and I had the trophy of a lifetime. Mokore Safaris, Doug Duckworth PH

Did you purchase your hunt at a US SCI fundraiser?

Heard you may have load data for the 500 Jeffery,.....any info would be appreciated. Was thinking 535gr, but already had a response that the 570gr would be a better way to go, not sure why.
