Enjoyed reading this and fantastic animals! I had to take a screenshot of that kudu to use as a measuring stick for my first safari.

Mark,
Any chance you're a retired SGM? I ran into a SGM Biggerstaff on one of my deployments many years ago.

Glad you had a great hunt with Gerrit. Kudu has a deep curl. Eland is special also!

Thanks for the report.

Well I'm six months late to the party, but wow! Excellent trophies...that is the Kudu of my dreams!!!

I always wanted to do the photo down the curl of the horn like that when I shot my first kudu, and then when it finally happened this past July, I completely forgot in all the excitement!

Congrats on a wonderful hunt!

Thanks for your report. Looks like you are an excellent shot! What type of practice shooting do you do? Do you spend a lot of time on the range? Congratulations on a great hunt!

I spend alot of time at the range. I hunt hogs at night using thermal with farmers here and have shot 1000s of rounds off sticks.

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.
