    Got a nice and long awaited surprise right before Christmas. Had some spare time today to share a few pictures. The work was done by Highveld in South Africa. Outstanding!!!!!! Now I can see them anytime I watch the boob tube. Took me the better part of a day to reverse engineer that crate, but everything was rock solid and stayed put.

    And the Africa cut out. I need to do some curio shopping myself next time. I've bought little stuff before but would love to get some more accent pieces.

    Nice mounts! Can't wait to get mine. Coming soon.

    Very nice trophies! It's always fun trying to figure out how to open the crate!

    Reverse Engineer is a great description.

    Glad you got your trophies in good shape and they are up for you to enjoy.

    If you have time in Johannesburg, get over to Cambanos and Sons. Best curio/souvenir shop I have ever seen. Well worth the trip.

    Thank you for sharing. Those are great. Sounds like you had good success with them. Seems like a few years back there was a post on AH about complaint with their logistics company (Oxi). I am heading over in May, considered using them. Really cool stuff with the shields & spears.

    Congratulations on some really great trophies. I've used Highveld before and was impressed by all aspects of their business. What safari company did you hunt with?

    Highveld has an excellent reputation, glad to hear your happy with the work. They look great. I love the spear/ shield mounts. How long did you have to wait?

    Check out Paul Smith of Relive African Taxidermy. Quite a few members have used them with outstanding results.
