Jack borrowing the rifle worked out great in the contract that I signed with them I was to borrow a rifle at no cost "300 Win Mag" the same as I hunt with here at home and Ammo at cost, I'm going to take my own guns this time but it is cheaper working out a deal with them. whats going to cost me $160 to take my own guns and ammo it cost me $50 for ammo Hmmm! I may need to rethink that one. I don't know when you plan to go but if you can get Rusty or Bruce you'll have the best but to tell the true there all good.:D Bob

Bob, I just read your story re: your hunt - FANTASTIC!!

Boy, that sounds exactly like the hunts you read about
and see on the hunting programs - excellent.

Thanks for sharing ...

How did it work out borrowing the rifle? Sounds easier
than packing my 30-06 with me... Did you bring your
own ammo?

I haven't seen any prices for taxidermy/shipping - if
you wouldn't object, I'd love to learn more about that.

Again, thanks for sharing that great hunt with us.

The taxidermy price list is for 2012 last year it cost me 4300 including Doc. I had it shipped through the shipping Co they use Rex Frieght forward at a cost of 2100 I had a lot of big trophies including 2 pedistal mounts, from the time they pick it up to the time you get it at home 6 to 10 months try that here in the states and as you can see by the pics posted they do very good work the best in my trophy room to date. The cheapest I could find around here and still get as good of work was well over $4000 and you still have to pay for dip and pack and shipping by the time you figure it out you pay about the same with the quotes I got from taxidermist I saved about $2000 all together and 7 or so months from the time Cecil took them they were hanging on my wall. Bob

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
