Wipartner, by now you know that your frau is a keeper. This was only the first of the many hunts you will have together. It is obvious that she gets serious behind a trigger but always seems willing to have a little fun.

Nice Eland! One of my favorite hunts. There are many reasons to follow your PH closely, or tracker, if he is in the lead. My tracker threw his sticks out at just the right moment to keep me from stepping on or near a puff adder, laying under a thorn bush. I had no trouble stepping in his tracks after that. Great report, lets hear the rest!!

Awesome reports from both you and @Just Gina !

The patterning on the giraffe is very cool and all the other trophies are great!

Well done!
:D Cheers:

Update. Hunters and Collectors took care of the dip and pack for us. I had them do a complete shoulder for my warthog, to avoid the USDA hassle. Kevin and his team were excellent to deal with. He sent me a pic of the finished warthog before packing everything to ship. I am thrilled with the looks of it so far and look forward to seeing it in person. I've heard alot of grumbling about African taxedermy, and I'm sure taxedermists vary in quality and abilities from one shop to another on both sides of the ocean, but I really appreciate a warthog mount that isn't bald, looking like plastic.

Hi Luke. Just saw your message. I am in Dillingham, and have been since 2002. I took an elementary teaching gig here, taught here five years, and then got a job with Togiak National Wildlife Refuge as their education and outreach specialist. Recently I just got a promotion and now I'm the Visitor Services Manager. Prior to DLG I spent 6 years teaching for Lake and Pen in Nondalton.

Hi TT
I am glad you found some useful info in my posts. Hard cast WFN with GC will do the job fine. I trust Veral Smith (owner of LBT company) - I believe that he can provide you with some finest HC bullets. Many companies are coping his design. I can help you from here in developing max loads (40.000psi) just let me know which powder you are using (I use Quick Load software which turns to be very reliable).
