Trophies Leaving South Africa

Well, I just got a email that said that my trophies are ready to be shipped from South African and to my taxidermist.  Not too bad of a turn around from dropping them off the end of May till now. 

Now the wait until they are sitting at Matts shop so that I can go down and take another look at them.  It seams like a long time since I have seen them.

Very nice !

Jim,

I was in Matt's shop this morning and there was some African critters on the floor and I had thought about you. That is very cool and I can't wait to see them mounted.

  I was actually surprised

 

I was actually surprised that they were ready when I got the email today.  The dip and pack taxidermist told us that it would be July but I know how that goes. 

Now all I need to do is to send of a wire transfer to my importer and sometime next week the shipment will be headed to LA and then up here to Matt’s.  I can’t wait since I have a couple of special items in the crate that I can pick up as soon as he get it.  I had the inner horns of the kudu polished for display and I had a fly swatter type of thing made out of the wildebeest tail. 

Now just to wait a couple of more weeks.

They left on a plane this morning headed to LA where the customs and US Wildlife group will check them out before they head to Colorado.
