She did way better than Jacques tracker!!! No ballet saves required.
My experience exactly. They are tough. It sure gives you an appreciation for hoe big they really are.
He is yours. Glad you had enough confidence in your shooting to call BS and check on your trophy.
I think I may just have to try that little calling trick. We'll see what happens.
.and a very fine trophy to do. Congrats. They are an addiction in themselves.
Thanks for taking the time to share your story.

Hi Bob, that was a great hunt, with lots of fine trophies.

Great hunt report Bob. Thank You John
Well to put a little cap on the report My Trophies finally made it in, longest shippment I've ever had they were picked up by the shippers But they failed to take the paperwork so they set in PE for a week while the paperwork was forwared. Then they were booked on a flight with SAA final Destination Atl Ga they arrived in Dulles but insted of forwarding them south to Atlanta they shipped them north to New York so they sat there for another week while F&WS and Customs went through them then they put them on a truck and shipped them to Atlanta and of course they arrived in Atlanta 3 hrs before my flight to Africa left Huntsville, AL. I figured this was going to happen so I had already been working with Forward Air in Atl. and the ladies there are Awesome to work with. when I got back to Dulles on the 18th I called them to let them know I was back in Country and would like to pick up my trophies the next day if they were open she said that they would be open until 2:00 to ask for Sharon bring the release paperwork a a $40.00 money order and they would load them for me as it turned out Sharon was this young lady's mother and both were a pleasure to work with. They got me loaded and within 30 min I was on my way back home.
Here are some pics.
Congratulations on getting your trophies back. They look great.
It sounds like they made it just in time so you can look at them while you write your new hunting report!
All the best.
They all look great Bob! Nothing like getting your trophies safely on home ground..
Thanks Wheels but no hunting report this time everything I had in my scope I let walk. My main reason for the trip this time for Deb and I was our good friends Rusty and Jami were getting hitched. I told them that when they get married Deb and I were coming to the wedding and we did. btw Have I told you how much I hate Jagermeister it was 2 days after the wedding before I could see straight again.:sweat:
A hunting report doesn't have to have photos of dead animals. You can tell us of the 60 inch bull you had in your scope and let walk because his horns weren't symmetrical. I certainly will read it.
Got to watch out for that poison.
Everything turned out great Bob! Great feeling when you can finally put your hands on them the second time around......btw - Hasn't anyone told you you're way too old to be doing Jagermeister!!! :vomit: :draught:
nice trophies bobby,
really like the mannikan of the springbok,that hedgehog looks awesome aswell
Timing is everything.
Trophies look good Bob.
Should have gone for Jaeger Bombs! Helps keep you awake.
Those are awesome! That Eland makes the Black Bear in the corner look tiny!
Nice trophies, I need a warthog that BIG!!!
Very nice Bob, thanks for sharing !
