Great pics Louis.

And there I was picturing you driving back to the camp with four long legs poking up from the back of the truck and a dirtly great long neck dragging on the ground behind !

Thank you Paul!

There are guys who put the whole thing on a trailer and I have seen a picture of one that they picked up in a TLB I just don’t want to move the animal around too much before we have the skin off, scared it will get damaged.

Best Regards
Louis van Bergen

When we manage to get an Elk close to a farm we are very thankful for that type of help Jerome.

What an awesome thread!

I wish I'd found this before I went on my first Safari, but maybe it's even better now since I'm sure that I appreciate it more.

I have sure had a lot of those "non-hunting" types question my choosing to shoot a Giraffe... I don't even know where to start tellin' people like that why, so I really don't even try. I mean, "if ya have to ask..."

I have enjoyed having taken mine so much that I want to do it again, and I don't even have my flatskin home yet. If I find one that appeals to me, which many in the photos in this thread have, I will gladly take another one.

Just want to share pics of a bull I saw in Zim twice, last year and 2 weeks ago. Very interesting bull, look at his head...



Also hunted one few years ago in RSA, mature bull, not as dark as others, but nice anyway...

Did your ever get that giraffe? I have this dream of a shoulder mount, articulating head, lamp in its mouth. I have a few friends that think it a great idea, but the wife is absolutely against it. When I get the chance to take my first trip to Africa, I might accidentally forget to tell her it's arranged..:rockon:

You have got to see the selection at Jerome's place.
Absolutely bloody amazing. I mean selection.
They must have the best habitat on earth for Giraffe.

My wife told me today, after linking her to the front loader picture, I'm still banned from bagging a giraffe. She says it can't come in the house! :banned: :nonono:

That's too bad, I really liked your idea for the mount!

I really think you will like zebra hunting. I love hunting them. I have received more than my share of hate mail for hunting them.

Talking to a buddy this evening....I think I should just make all my mounts into lamps! That'll teach her to stifle my dreams!

Sometimes you have to let it go and hope she lets down her guard as the years go by.

As Norm said on "Cheers", women...pass the beer nuts".

Mule deer and Colorado elk seasons almost done! Hunters driving farm roads, looking for racks, their PH driving them along, I ask that you not pull into my drive. The buck behind me, on the boundary line of the GMU somehow knows. The hunter laughs, I would invite you in to see my Searcy rifles but social distancing prevails, darkness arrives and the buck slides away into secret tree grove...

Many thanks for re formatting my article for the forum

I served my time in both the bush and during the bush war

I hope it did it justice

Education is where it is at - without it the wild places are history

You - sir - are well placed to make a difference
