Wow, I got an email this morning from Cuan Meredith the manager of TCI in Zimbabwe. He is offering to replace my full body nyala cape at no charge to me. That offer kinda restored my faith in mankind.

That's great news irregardless of the original cape it's still your horns and I am sure you will look back over the years with pride.

thanks everybody, yeah I am relieved that it is being taken care of. I guess the hard part will be waiting for the cape, it will be a little while till I get it. Thank God I am a patient man, just ask my wife she'll tell you. LOL

A bummer for certain! Similar thing happened to me, nyala as well. All I wanted was a nice flat skin, and the SA tanner buggered it up, shipped it anyway with no warning. I let the taxi in SA know of my displeasure. They did offer to replace it but I declined that offer since it was flat skin only. Why would I want someone else's skin? I have my other nyala in SA now for flat skin again, and I let the broker over there know what happened before and to let the tanner know it better not happen again. Different tanner this time. Hopefully you will end up with a nice mount, good luck!

I just had a friend of mine join AH. (Safaripete) He has a full body mount Nyala in perfect condition for sale. It might be a lot less money to get it. & swap out horns than ship. & mount one. His email is petesbearsden@yahoo.com

Hi Luke. Just saw your message. I am in Dillingham, and have been since 2002. I took an elementary teaching gig here, taught here five years, and then got a job with Togiak National Wildlife Refuge as their education and outreach specialist. Recently I just got a promotion and now I'm the Visitor Services Manager. Prior to DLG I spent 6 years teaching for Lake and Pen in Nondalton.

Hi TT
I am glad you found some useful info in my posts. Hard cast WFN with GC will do the job fine. I trust Veral Smith (owner of LBT company) - I believe that he can provide you with some finest HC bullets. Many companies are coping his design. I can help you from here in developing max loads (40.000psi) just let me know which powder you are using (I use Quick Load software which turns to be very reliable).
