    Well, our crate of trophy parts arrived last week, and I am glad to say that everything made it over in the amount of pieces each was supposed to be in.... Although the finished taxidermy is still a few months away from completion, we were able to enjoy a few of our mementos right away. I had Johan at Trophy Pro SA make a rifle sling and 5 pairs of gaiters from the back skin of my Cape buffalo. I had a pair made for me and every member of the hunting party.

    I am extremely pleased with the quality and craftsmanship from Trophy Pro SA..... They did an excellent job and I would recommend them to anyone for dip & pack or leather work on their next safari.... I also had them sneak in a few bottles of my favorite adult sipping beverage for those cool nights around the camp fire. If you have never sampled KWV Brandy in South Africa you need to try it... Smooth as silk!
