After two and a half years, my trophies have finally arrived home from my first hunt in South Africa in 2012. Sadly, due to a family tragedy of the original taxidermist who was suppose to just dip and ship the trophies to the U.S., there was a hold-up in receiving them. Thanks to Andrew Pringle of Crusader Safaris (our Outfitter for this hunt) and Henry Baskerville of Safaris Unlimited, the trophies were finally retrieved. The group I was with made the decision to go ahead and have the trophies mounted there in SA. Needless to say, I was a bit concerned. But I am happy to say we are all pretty thrilled with the work done by African Wildlife Artistry located in the Eastern Cape. Just thought I would share the photos. The only animal I did not have mounted was the warthog I shot. I had his tusks made into bottle openers to give to my sons. Just thrilled to finally have them and to see my great room evolving into an Africa room.
