Mack I am Jimbas agent/patner please send any email to ScottOutdoors@hotmail.com and I will 100% make certain our taxidermist responds. Zimbabwe is in the process of making all export permits viewable online which we hope speeds up the export time, that being said a year to 16 months is about the norm currently. I would also like to mention that Stan Christiansen has just taken the new archery world record leopard with us scoring 17 inches and a live weight of 192 pounds!


Hi there can you kindly follow up with Wayne the ele we shot in ZIM with him of Jess, up to now no communication form him or taxidermist and its been 1 year 6 months !!! thnx if you can email me directly at namssa01@hotmail.com please....

Jess 's ele is done and ready to ship from Matt Taxi Matebeland Taxidermy now, sorry for the delay but it is fairly common under the old hand written permit system. Every PH in Zim is hopeful the new online permit system will speed up this process or at least make it predictable. AS always don't hesitate to contact me with any questions concerning Jimba or Namib Sun even going back beyond my joining them. One thing of NOTE to all readers of this thread-- The hunter that took the bull was from the Philippines and export there is a little more complex as they have a huge black market for some animal products..

Thanks for your kind efforts and our peace of mind! Yes Ele is ready but says outfitter needs more permits, cities or export docs maybe ? Never the less were still waiting, take note were only a small intl hunt group here and there's no black market of goods as you mentioned in the Philippines as others, will still be standing by fingers crossed !

HI calling attention of Wayne of Jimba , Hi there were groupof my clients from Philippines, jess is following up his ele and leopard of gov we need taxidermist number or contact fro a clue of our capes status, since Sept 2013 to follo up orders delivery , no communications wiht you no reply emials ...pls answer abck status thnx, cehck your email stil no replies form u thnx fro ur kind attention and reply
Sorry you are going through the same thing my friend and I went through in September 2012 safari with Wayne. It took us over a year and a half to get our stuff back from him. ( they gave us the same sad story of he's out in the bush still hunting, but he didn't have a problem taking my money for the safari) I shoot 15 + animals with Wayne and had a great time with him, but the problem with him is after the safari you are forgotten about and he's making a dollar off the next client. After waiting for over a year and half for our trophies they finally made it back home. Several off our trophies were damage from hair slippage due to him not salting them right and not getting them to a taxidermist to do the dipping and packing. Hopefully it will work out better for you than it did for us

I'm glad I joined AH. I would like for you to contact me, if you are Wayne's agent. Wayne D dropped the ball on us in 2012 and a lot of our capes were damaged from him not taking care of our trophies. The taxidermist didn't receive our trophies for almost a year, because Wayne left everything in The camps we hunted in and was to busy still hunting and not taking care of our trophies. Please contact me at robbyw@topnotchcc.com. I think the least he could do is replace all our capes that were bad. I was at the SCI show in Vegas and went to the Zimbabwe booth and Jimba Safaris ( Wayne D) had numerous complaints written up on him for the same thing I went through

I went through this with my leopard and had to reapply for a permit because he didn't take care of the paperwork. Hopefully all your trophies come back in good shape several of ours were damaged.

Hi Bob, how's things going in Wyong?. Down your way a couple of years back but haven't been in NSW since Ebor for the fishing. just getting over some nasty storms up here in Qld, seeing the sun for the first time in a few days. I'm going to NZ in the spring and hope to clean up a few buns while there and perhaps shake the spiders out of my old .303LE (currently owned by my BIL). Cheers Brian

Did you purchase your hunt at a US SCI fundraiser?

Heard you may have load data for the 500 Jeffery,.....any info would be appreciated. Was thinking 535gr, but already had a response that the 570gr would be a better way to go, not sure why.
