Well I just couldn't wait any longer. Trophy's finally arrived. I have a guy I work with that is in the Boston area during the week go to freight wharehouse that had the crates and pick up my hunting partners and my crates. He got here to the office around 10 am. I just couldn't wait till i got home. I had to pop the lid on my crate and sneak a peak. I might have to leave early, I'd like to start unpacking it!!

Okay, I wasn't planning on bringing anything back from my first Africa trip other than memories and a lot of photographs. In my mind, a well-done hardback photo book is a good (or better in some ways) than actual mounts then...

I saw a photograph (I call a prop shot) of a rifle, journal and some warthog tusks so I started thinking, maybe I'll bring back the tusks of my first warthog...pretty easy and cheap then...

I saw a zebra rug. Okay, I like the idea, pretty cheap and flat - easy to ship then...

I saw your European mount on the Wildebeest...what? I really like that and it's not much more room than shipping a folded zebra rug...what's next?

Oh, by the way, thanks for sharing...you're giving me some ideas and changing my mind on a few things...

that is fantastic, if I may be so bold as to ask what country did you hunt, and what was the cost to ship them to you? again those look great!

Hello Bruce, I think you are still in Africa?? I just sent payment to Bulls Eye Taxidermy to have 3 of my animals mounted, it has been years since I have had anything mounted. I hope Ronnie and Jimmy had a good hunt down Kimberly way. Anyway, so nice to have met you Bruce, it was wonderful meeting you and spending time with you in camp. I hope your store closure and building sale go well. Cheers, Andrew Fike

G'day Bob,
Just had a yarn with A G, and he has filled me in on how much work he puts in to such developments, referencing QuikLoad, tightening tolerances, load development, range testing. He indicated that of you wish to contact him directly he can go into details far better than I.
If you wish , contact him directly, he has given the OK for me to pass that on.
