    Getting really exciting!

    Kudu and waterbuck forms arrived. The skins will be ready at the tannery within 2 weeks.

    Kudu and waterbuck on each end, wildebeest top center, and blesbok and impala middle center. Zebra full skin will be on the floor.

    Scared the hell out of me. I thought they were building a wall in South Africa ala USA/Mexico. LOL


    Keep showing us the progress. Planning space is all part of the game.

    Love the form for the whitetail. Looks a lot like one of Joe Coombs's. I did my bow buck and a doctor's from last year on one of those. Love his forms.
