I have just completed my new trophy room. It used to be the shop, so part of the package was creating a new shop before I could build on the trophy room. But that's another story...
This is a multi function space where one can read, listen to music, reload, write, lift a few weights and do small projects. I have done all the work, including building the reloading bench out of a few old timbers I re-milled. I've included various artifacts, art and mementos from my past. The water colours were done by my brother Jene.
I've dedicated a corner to my life in the north. I used to trap and have displayed some old traps and furs. The furs were harvested by me locally, with the exception of the martins. The saddle belonged to a brother who tragically died young. He used to team rope. The Stetson was Dad's.

I should have included a photo of the reloading supplies. Obviously I need more room. Some stuff in the tool box but my next build is a cabinet that will fill the space on the left.

So, not more than an hour after I post this, I get a call from the tanners, that last springs bear hide is ready... I didn't bother with a head mount. If it was over 6' then I would consider it, and if over 6.5' squared it would be a no brainer. This bear was around 5.5' squared when green. Nice and thick though.

That re-purposed space has MAN CAVE written all over it. Well done and Congrats!
Yeah my wife really encouraged this. But she may have been tired of our bedroom packed with trophies....

Hi Bob, how's things going in Wyong?. Down your way a couple of years back but haven't been in NSW since Ebor for the fishing. just getting over some nasty storms up here in Qld, seeing the sun for the first time in a few days. I'm going to NZ in the spring and hope to clean up a few buns while there and perhaps shake the spiders out of my old .303LE (currently owned by my BIL). Cheers Brian

Did you purchase your hunt at a US SCI fundraiser?

Heard you may have load data for the 500 Jeffery,.....any info would be appreciated. Was thinking 535gr, but already had a response that the 570gr would be a better way to go, not sure why.
