I wanted to write this to leave a somewhat detailed review of @TROPHY SHIPPERS because I know I was looking for information before my first safari and couldn't find a great amount. The contact there is Tom Kelly, Tom was (and still is) the best and easiest person I had dealings with throughout my whole Safari. I let him know all the details, he had me sign some forms and other than that I just kept him updated with what the taxidermist had told me and Tom and his team did the rest. I highly recommend using Trophy Shippers for all of your shipments. In the end my crate did take some damage because It was mixed up with another crate and delivered to South Carolina, it then had to come back to Wyoming and in the process was rammed with a forklift. One Kudu horn fell off the side and landed on my Impala Skull, breaking the nose off and damaging the base of the Kudu horn. I sent all of the pictures to Tom after calling him that night and after 48 hours he has submitted an insurance claim for the damage and also got me a credit for the initial headache of turning the crate around. I have had no contact with anyone other than him and he has been working very hard for me.

I used Tom to get my animals back from my safari in 2019. Great guy and company to work with, all went as planned without any issues.

I used Trophy Shippers for 2019 hunt. Tom made this the easiest part ever of getting trophies back. Will be using them from now on.

Thank you all for the kind reviews. When a trucker picks a shipment up from us we lose physical control of it and Mitchell's shipment was the very rare case where something went wrong between the pick up and the delivery. To me it appears a careless forklift driver ran into the side of it. It hurts to see these pictures as we all know how much time, effort, emotion and money went into getting these memories home! We will follow through with the claim to make sure he is taken care of and can either have the taxidermy repaired or replaced!

Hi Luke. Just saw your message. I am in Dillingham, and have been since 2002. I took an elementary teaching gig here, taught here five years, and then got a job with Togiak National Wildlife Refuge as their education and outreach specialist. Recently I just got a promotion and now I'm the Visitor Services Manager. Prior to DLG I spent 6 years teaching for Lake and Pen in Nondalton.

Hi TT
I am glad you found some useful info in my posts. Hard cast WFN with GC will do the job fine. I trust Veral Smith (owner of LBT company) - I believe that he can provide you with some finest HC bullets. Many companies are coping his design. I can help you from here in developing max loads (40.000psi) just let me know which powder you are using (I use Quick Load software which turns to be very reliable).
