    Got my taxidermy back from Africa today! I happened to be in DFW so I swung by the clearing house and picked it up (I used DSV and it was painless and affordable).

    Let me know if you want any other angles, etc. this is the first taxidermy I’ve ever had done so I’m pleased. It was packed well, everything was in good shape and I don’t have any complaints.

    On Trophy Pro (Limcroma’s Dip Pack company and they outsourced the taxidermy), you can judge the work, I will say that pricing seemed fine, they answered any questions I ever had, but I didn’t get any updates without asking for them. Not really a big deal while waiting, but just an FYI. Once it was done and they took it to JoBerg for shipping communication was good and the shipping company kept me up to date.

    Very nice!

    I'll admit that I have never received one of these crates and i am very much looking foward to the day that i do. That said, they always make me think of raiders of the lost ark.....

    Congratulations, very nice! I am guessing this has ignited the dreaming/planning for the next hunt.

    Maybe the angel of the picture but the impala looks like the ears are growing out it’s neck.
