    Got an early Christmas Present email. My crate has cleared customs at DFW and will be on its way to Erik at Top of Texas Taxidermy!!! This is my animals from June hunt with Bos en Dal Safaris. I used Trophy Solutions for Dip and Pack. Rosella at Safari Specialty Imports handled the rest.
    Cant wait till Erik gets started on them after the New Year.

    Getting trophies back is always like reliving the safari.

    The good thing about using Eric is that we'll be able to see his handiwork almost as soon as you do.
    FELIZ NAVIDAD!!

    Trophy Solutions picked up from Bos En Dal on June 22, 2018. I was notified by SSI on November 12, 2018 that all was done and export permit approved.

    I am sure when Erik gets started on them there will be a live thread. Kudu, Eland and Black wildabeest will be mounts. Others will be Euro’s with an interesting plaque. You will have to wait to see the ideas Erik is coming up with.
