Well, the other day my trophies arrived at my taxidermist shop in a crate.

They were shot in May of this year, dropped off at Hunter and Collectors in Port Elizabeth the first of June and arrived here in the states a couple of weeks ago. Then once they were cleared by the Feds they were shipped to my taxidermist here in Colorado. Not too bad of a time frame from pulling the trigger to being ready for the final process here in the states.

So my kudu, black wildebeast, gemsbuck, springbuck, and impala are ready to go. I had Hunters and Collectors do a euro mount of my bleastbuck along with polishing the inner cores of the kudu horns, and had the tail of the wildibeast processed which added a short amount of time to the shipping, but it still wasn't bad. So by this time next week all my capes will be at the tannery with them doing their magic of the final process.

So I would like to thank Tara and Rosella at SSI for all of your help in getting them here. My taxidermist was very impressed with the notifications that you provided for them and will be recommending you to other hunters, by the way I will to. Also while they are not a member here Hunters and Collectors in PE were great to work with. All the skulls, horns, capes, and other items were properly marked and tagged along with being properly packed for the shipment here to the states, they will also be getting some recommendations from me and my taxidermist. Finally to all of you members that put up with some of my questions as the safari was in it planning stage, everything went great.

Now I just need to wait for one more person to do their magic on the mounts and then I'll have them hanging on my wall.

Good for you.
it is a very good feeling to have your trophy's back in the U.S. I think it was a quick turn around. Forrest

I'm sure I am a day late and a dollar short but if the deal on the .416 falls through let me know and I will buy it.

Kevin,
Played rookie league for the Yankees in Paintsville after winning the College World Series at Fullerton State, in1979. All I could think about was the movie “Deliverance”- lived up in a hollow with some other players. Refused to go on a moonshine run because it was a dry county-no way. Met some of the nicest people on the planet there! Van Lear the home of Loretta Lynn was highlight of summer LOL.

Mule deer and Colorado elk seasons almost done! Hunters driving farm roads, looking for racks, their PH driving them along, I ask that you not pull into my drive. The buck behind me, on the boundary line of the GMU somehow knows. The hunter laughs, I would invite you in to see my Searcy rifles but social distancing prevails, darkness arrives and the buck slides away into secret tree grove...
