@reedy0312 North Island - going after red stag, fallow buck, and probably some wild sheep.

I was able to finally go to NZ earlier this year after many years of watching many hunting show about it! I just got my crate with horns and hides back from my hunt in late April! I am nowhere near the story teller some of you are, as I have read many entertaining and detailed reports on here recently. I will try my best to tell a small part of the story and post some pics. The first pic is of the crate and contents, I was fortunate to harvest 2 stags, a fallow, and a tahr. I lucked up for the most part with weather, as 5 of my 7 hunting days were sunny, the other two were pretty wet. Luckily I was able to harvest all animals in the first 4 days, the other days were spent sightseeing and hunting wallaby. I hunted the south island with NZ Safaris, they were awesome and had lots of private land. Tons of game, including stag, tahr, chamois, fallow, and ram all within 45 minutes of the lodge! If anyone is thinking of going to NZ, I would definitely recommend it and certainly recommend NZ Safaris! More pics to follow.

Great going Reedy! Definitely post a pic of the stag when he makes it to the wall, he deserves a better showing for sure.

Glad everything made it in one piece Reedy!, was freight much different from shipping from Africa?

I bought some bullets from Rimshot and he is good to trade with!
Greetings all! I've been a hunter for 50 years, but only now planning a trip to Africa. I was fortunate and successfully bid on a couple hunts for plains game in SA later this year and next. Also a rare Native Texas (5th generation) and USMC Vet. Hunt safe y'all!

I am looking for a Safari Express. Was yours made in New Haven or South Carolina? Any other details you can give me? I am very motivated to buy.
