    TCI in Bulawayo has completed the replica tusks, on to Harare and Andy Hunter, Chipitani Safaris, who has handled the dip & Pack/paperwork of the two previous trophy shipments and Lynn Duncan of LD Forwarding for shipment to Coppersmith in Atlanta.

    Great folks to work with and excellent communication between all parties.

    That's GREAT Brother! Close to a 16" skull is a great Leopard.

    I wish that these PH's would carry a scale in the truck to weigh them too
