Well I just heard from Rosella with SSI and my trophies are in the air right now. They well will clear customs in Chicago and head to Denis @The Artistry of Wildlife to be mounted. I'm so excited. Everyone has done just such a great job. SSI has definitely gained a life long customer they are awesome and I was floored at how reasonable they were able to ship everything and it was a very large crate. Will keep everyone posted.

Right, that's a great way to put it. I just wish I could be there to open the box!

What's great is with the SSI team on it there is NO worries. They've been all over it from the beginning to make sure all the i's are dotted and t's are crossed. Bring it on USFW!!!!

I also used SSI and the only worry that I had was when I was leaving for another hunt and I needed to get a payment to them for the final clearances. I worked with Tara and everything came out super.

For anyone that is planning a hunt I highly recommend SSI. They handle everything with your trophies after you pull the trigger until they get to your taxidermists shop.

I bought some bullets from Rimshot and he is good to trade with!
Greetings all! I've been a hunter for 50 years, but only now planning a trip to Africa. I was fortunate and successfully bid on a couple hunts for plains game in SA later this year and next. Also a rare Native Texas (5th generation) and USMC Vet. Hunt safe y'all!
