Your wife won't allow him in the house? Does she have any idea first what that is worth and second how beautiful it is? That deserves much more than a spot in the garage. I dumped my last girl friend because she didn't like deer antlers on the wall or my dog's in the house! Sheese!!!!!!!!! Brick Wall,)

GREAT LOOKING MOUNT!

I've been married over thirty years, so I think my wife is worth more than the buffalo head. Besides, when the door is open, people stop when passing my garage, which opens to the street, to stare, some even come in to talk and admire.

I just sent my deposit in for leopard for September 2007, hopefully i will get a giraffe, zebra, and waterbuck also. lol Can't wait!! Laugh

Unfortunately, there are no basements here due to a very high water table. The garage is getting full, I screened in the back porch for most of the bigger heads, what is next I guess will be a new house with a proper trophy room. Brick Wall,) Maybe someday.

A good friend of mine has a beautiful cape buffalo in his den. He was a missionary to Africa for over 25 years, and he killed him while he was over there. He has several other trophies, but I can't remember what they all are.

Nice buff. Fortunately my wife lets me hang my buff and what not in the house. Of course it helps that she hunts.

Picture must be gone. Curious about who you hunted with in Tanzania?

I think the picture was taken off. I hunted with Bundu Safaris via Wendell Reich at huntersquest.com, south of Arusha. It was a 12 day, 2 buffalo hunt.
