Bummer you did not get a leopard. I had a great hunt with Westfalen last June, and although we actually saw a leopard! I was not hunting them. I hunted mainly with Gideon, a very focused hunter, if a bit laconic. If he could not put you on a leopard at that time, I doubt anyone could.
The ongoing drought is tragic. Hope it ends soon.

Philip, I hunted with Westfalen in July/August. Only plains game but had an incredible hunt. I decided to do the Taxidermy in Namibia because 1) I personally saw the work they do 2) Cost - Comparing to three local taxidermist the cost was considerably lower. Over 25% including increased shipping cost. But along your lines, I negotiated that the final bill with be an additional 20% off if they are not ready to ship in 6 months. I totally agree everything is negotiable. BTW 6 months is 3/16/17 so I will keep everyone updated.
I'm going to be interested to see how your taxidermy goes. Mine is still "in progress" as well. (June/2016). John was adamant I contact him if I needed anything, but I am not quite there yet.

I seen a post saying that you do taxidermy in WV. Where are you located in WV and do you have a price list?
I'm going on my first safari in June.

Hey There,

Im looking to book my first African Safari for 2024 for my 40th birthday. I've never hunted Africa before, but was going to head to SA with my wife for a week then see her off and then stay and hunt.

Saw your safari come up as a recommendation and wondering if you had any time to chat.
Thanks!
Steve

Hi Theleatherman, I attach two price lists, one in English, one in Italian, because several words of the language used by the agent are very difficult to understand. If you get in touch with Laszlo Keresztes (owner/manager) tell him that you got the name from Paolo Sinha, italian hunter.
Suerte!
