Great report and some exceptional animals. That kudu was exceptional. I loved the fact you kept going back looking for him until you nailed him. Enjoyed your writing style.
That sable is in trouble.

Great hunt. Enjoyed your writing style. Stud of a Kudu. The Red Hartebeast is no slouch either. Sounds like your shooting was good and your rifle did a great job.

Did you by any chance recover any of the Barnes 235 TSX bullets?

Here are the recovered bullets

I was really enjoying this report until the damn snake showed up. :A Outta:

The Kudu and black wildebeest make up for the snake. :A Banana:

I have a like new VC .450 I might part with. I had it built in 2013 and it has served me well. Also have a VC fitted leather trunk case for it along with the plastic case it came with. I'll take 14000 for all of it.

Hi Jody,
I have been looking for ideas on the best way to display my European mounts from Africa. I came across some of your shield work and was wondering if you would be willing to make one for me? If so, please let me know the cost. I like the shield with the two spears that you built for a member years ago. Thanks.

I'm at <pappas@mtaonline.net> Send me an email with your phone and I will call you about a skull I have. I went to school in Boston and am from Bernardston in the west part of the state. Moved to Alaska in 1984 adn never looked back.
