I am heading to Eastern Cape in less than two weeks. The taxidermy prices provided by my PH seem exorbitant, so I want to do some comparison shopping. Can anyone recommend a taxidermist in the EC, ideally close to Bloemfontein? I don't need masterpieces, just good quality. Thanks.

No clue about their mounts.

Mike, another vote for Kruger Human of Marakalalo Trophies. He has mounted all my personal South African trophies, as well as most of my clients trophies that I hunted with in SA.

I asked Kruger if he could do my jackal and springhare in a chase, the results of which are on the main page and in the Custom gallery.

You sure you want to mount your trophies in Africa? I know their are members here who are satisfied and many who were not. I had two trophies done there and would not do it again. This is a hot topic for some here. Remember you have little recourse if your dissatisfied.

My experience with taxidermists is very limited, but I was pretty impressed with Game Over taxidermy in Kimberley. ( http://www.gameovertaxidermy.co.za ) As I said, i don't have much for comparison, but I was pleased, especially with my waterbuck, which was the main goal and highlight of my hunt.

I toured African Sans on my last trip, the work on display looked good. I believe they are owned and operated by Wintershoek Safaris. Impressive facility, they were doing a full body elephant when I was there.

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.
