Are you using Trophy Transport Johnny?
No I don't believe he is. Gentleman by the name of Allen is the owner. I was talking with Erick yesterday on the phone, if he didn't hear from them he was going to load it up himself and drive it to NY. A short while later he did hear from them and they are supposed to pick up this morning get it to the mid west somewhere and then hand it off to someone else. I should have delivery sometime next week.

Ok guys taxidermy is home! Today is exactly one year since I shot my waterbuck which was my last trophy on my Safari. One year from hunt to trophy room. That’s the kind of turnaround time I look for to be honest. I’m just to impatient to wait 18-24 or more months. Ok so my overall opinion on my experience with Erik of Top of Texas taxidermy (@gizmo), communication excellent, willing to listen and work with the client excellent, in progress photos constant. And the final product very good. The pedestals are beautiful too. One of a kind. Thank you my brother for everything. Please forgive these piss poor photos as I’m not a high end camera guy. And once again thanks everyone for laughing and enjoying with us.

I have a like new VC .450 I might part with. I had it built in 2013 and it has served me well. Also have a VC fitted leather trunk case for it along with the plastic case it came with. I'll take 14000 for all of it.

Hi Jody,
I have been looking for ideas on the best way to display my European mounts from Africa. I came across some of your shield work and was wondering if you would be willing to make one for me? If so, please let me know the cost. I like the shield with the two spears that you built for a member years ago. Thanks.

I'm at <pappas@mtaonline.net> Send me an email with your phone and I will call you about a skull I have. I went to school in Boston and am from Bernardston in the west part of the state. Moved to Alaska in 1984 adn never looked back.
