    Thanks,
    Have fun planning. I have as many great memories from the months leading up to the hunt as the hunt. Mine was a family affair with my uncle, cousin, and 2 cousin in laws (if that 's the right way to say that??). We got together a couple times a month leading up to the trip to shoot and watched videos. Drove our wives nuts!! It was a blast. Start a journal now if you haven't, I still get mine out and re-read it ever so often.
    One of the guys from my first trip and I have already booked our second trip for Namibia in June 2019. It will become an addiction. The planning for us is starting all over again. Great times.

    I hear you there! I used Huntershill in the East Cape and was blown away! I'd recommend them anytime! Let us know how your mounts turned out when you get them.

    It has been a perfect storm of delays, but we got the email this morning that our stuff had cleared customs and left LAX this morning and landed at DFW. My understanding is it just needs USDA inspection and we'll be able to pick it up. I'm hoping next week, we are just a couple of weeks from it being 2 years since our hunt and I can't wait to get my animals in the house.

    If you are self clearing, they are involved in a personal way. If using a broker, they do it for you.
