My Hippo Skull

It looks just great, I had the intention of bringing mine, but the Lady of the House said, that would be just too many bones in the living room. (I don´t have a trophy room as such)

So, it stayed in Africa, and I just brought the tusks.
Damn you Sammo… That looks so cool, I may now have a hippo hunt in my future.
First up - that skull table looks fantastic!

Second @Rusty Iron what happened :O
@Certus- the Ph and Outfitter we hunted with in Tanzania last September has not paid anything to the concession/block owner where we hunted. As a result, they will not release my trophies unless I compensate them directly. I’m obviously not paying twice for that hunt and I don’t believe they will send them anyhow, based on their previous behaviours.

I’ll write a hunt report soon. I‘m still weighing legal options.
Very impressive
Trophy Consultants International did the work. I had the glass made here. I hunted with Lin Stanton and had a great time.
Been thinking of a future hunt for Hippo, now I know what could be done with the skull. Beautiful display!
That looks great, the leg bones could also be used as legs in the four corners, just a thought

Have a look af our latest post on the biggest roan i ever guided on!

I realize how hard the bug has bit. I’m on the cusp of safari #2 and I’m looking to plan #3 with my 11 year old a year from now while looking at my work schedule for overtime and computing the math of how many shifts are needed….
