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.

They do look very nice indeed and I know how it feels to finally get them home. Congrats looks like your Africa room is well on it's way.

Just be careful I used to have plenty of room left too. I built a trophy room and removed all my mounts from the living room, so that my wife could have it back, but that didn't last too long. Now there is a zebra and a pair of pronghorns in the living room to great all our guests. She says she doesn't mind though, she thinks they are pretty.

That's why I bought another house with an open foyer. LOL!

True dat! The elk in my avatar is above the front door. I love to see people's reaction when they come in and eventually look up!

WP, your room and trophies look simply wonderful!

Mule deer and Colorado elk seasons almost done! Hunters driving farm roads, looking for racks, their PH driving them along, I ask that you not pull into my drive. The buck behind me, on the boundary line of the GMU somehow knows. The hunter laughs, I would invite you in to see my Searcy rifles but social distancing prevails, darkness arrives and the buck slides away into secret tree grove...

Ellwood Epps has 1 box of 25-20 in stock. Look them up on the web. They are located in Orilla Ontario.

Thanks, Oliver

Many thanks for re formatting my article for the forum

I served my time in both the bush and during the bush war

I hope it did it justice

Education is where it is at - without it the wild places are history

You - sir - are well placed to make a difference

Good morning friends

i‘ve taken to heart a suggestion to tell my story about a lion hunt 37 years ago. ‘I don’t know, but am thinking there are site rules as to posting and file type. Three of the four posts (chapters?) are done, I took time away from here to write up the story. I have a couple of photos too.

also, I’m going to dissemble the rifles and see if Butch may have signed them. I’ll let you know.
