    Ok seem like it’s all arranged Turkish air to Toronto ground to home using same broker as last 5 times .
    It one of the big five that causes the mixup and Turkish airlines can’t forward by air to Calgary because of the Cape buffalo so ground it will be if crate small enough maybe canpar lol.

    NICE!
    Where were these taken?
    Who were the outfitters?
    What cartridges and bullets did you use and how did they perform?
    Gee I’m nosy! Really I’m just interested and always trying to learn.
    Thanks for sharing!

    Big mistake IMO. Having had two mounts done there I would never ever do it again. This is a highly popular subject here with numerous threads, and the vast majority opinion is bring them home!

    Had 30 some done so far no problems you just have to be very specific on what you want and expect.
    From 6 different trips
    Now shipping can eat a big chunk out of wallet as there are few options if one of the big 5 in shipment.
    Toronto airport terminal fees are absolute ripoff they cost more than airfreight from Johannesburg.

    I’ll go against the flow. I shot the biggest buff I will likely ever take in one of the reserves open to Kruger. Nico van Royen Taxidermy in Limpopo did a pedestal mount. It is the most impressive buffalo mount I have seen. The lady who wrote the taxidermy chapter of Peter Flack’s buffalo work, Katerina, did the work.

    Both I and a friend have had work done by Collett’s out of Bulawayo and Pretoria. It is outstanding.

    Cam,
    Glad to see another Albertan here. This is a great site and have read so much great information. Pics and videos are great too. One of the best forums I have ever been on even if your not too interested in Africa. Cheers
