    Hey guys, as most know the blues have moved south to Georgia well at least full time next week. We’re here now buying furniture getting cable set up etc etc etc. Trophy Transport dropped off my trophies the other day so the work began placing and hanging. Did the best I could with the space I have in my man cave. Here’s some pics.

    Very nice, I like the wall color. You have your priorities straight too, take care of the trophies and then everything else. (y)

    Fantastic! There are many beautiful animals in there. That is getting to be museum quality!

    Ok, if I may be so bold: (1) now you must (attempt to) declare a favorite, and why.

    (2) tell us which hunt you would most recommend that the rest of us do.

    (For perspective, I have 1 PG Namibia hunt from 2018, a BC moose hunt this fall and a return to Namibia planned in 2020, besides age 12-43 of elk, deer, antelope)

    WOW. First thank you for your comment. Now a favorite? Oh boy that’s tough. Each trophy holds a special memory for me for instance, my brown bear charging, the high anxiety of hunting grizzly in the Brooks Range, the absolute fear of heights for mountain goat hunting you get the picture. My leopard hunt without a doubt has to rise close to the top the list based on the circumstances of that hunt. So he may just turn out to be my favorite. Now as far as what hunt I would recommend every big game hunter try and my answer may surprise you....is the big bears of Alaska. Weather it be brown or grizzly. It’s truly in my opinion a must do hunt.
