lol bob just think how Paul's feels dealing with me for all this time now. He may have called his wife bill by mistake as much as we have chatted.

He even started calling myself Bill these last couple of months!

Paul hasn't called me Bill or Bob yet but if all his work is as good as what he has done for my trophies he can call me what ever he wants. I just got some pics of my animals that are done. WOW! Now I have to wait for my wildebeests and monkey. Relive has been excellent to deal with and their work is as good as an I've seen.

Those look great!

I can't wait for more pictures of mine. I'm super pleased with what I've seen so far though.

The ears look funky on the kudu, but his horns are beautiful

Funky good or bad on the ears?
Here is a pic of a kudu with it's ears like my mount's.

When I shot the bull their was another bull off to his right in the trees moving around and he was turning his satellite dish ears to listen. So that it is how I asked Paul to do the mount.
Method to my madness!
And yes, he has a very nice set of horns.

I have decided to have my trophies mounted in the Eastern Cape instead of dip and pack. I have reviewed several taxidermists in the area. One is Umlindi. Does any one have any knowledge of them and there work?
I'm wondering who you ended up using in the long run? Seems like you got several recommendations for other taxidermists but no real information on Umlini!

I wish you luck...Many folks have had bad experiences with SA taxidermy and dip/pack. I m one of those folks. Lets us know how it all turns out,. I used Relieve and was not satisfied at all. My Nyala had all the back stitching showing. Had to pay someone here to fix it. Yes Paul offered to pay but I was so angry and disappointed I just told him forget it. I felt as though a poor report is enough if someone asked. Sorry.

I do not know where this video was posted, but I would very much like to see it.

Hello Milan, I just watched your video on disassembling/reassembling the CZ 550. I have spent days looking for something like this. I now have no reservations taking apart my rifle. I like to do this with all my guns so I understand them "inside and out". Thank you very much for the information. It is greatly appreciated.
