Finally got all my stuff here on American soil. And it only took 11 months! :eek: I am pretty relieved that it all showed up in one piece!

Cool looking trophies...

Why did it take so long?

The Dip/Pack facility was in the process of moving...and everything over there goes at a much slower pace than we are used to here.

I was really worried about getting the stuff here and getting all MY stuff here-the warthog is a gold medal SCI pig. It's my favorite trophy!

VERY NICE collection!!! Some great trophies!! That warthog has some great tusks! I also love the Gemsbok and Kudu. Thanks for sharing!

An African bowhunt is truly something I plan on doing atleast once in my life!

I scored the Warthog last night-waiting for the official scorer to call me. Scored right at 35" SCI-which would place it in the top 25 in the world, according to the 2004 bowhunting record book! WOOHOO :teeth:

Nice trophys, congratulate on them. Are you planning to shoulder mount the pig? I can tell you, it is dashing, and a definitive eye catcher. :thumbs_up

PS: This Waterbuck was hunted near Ellisras in RSA this May at Thwane Game Lodge

The Warthog, Impala, and Hartebeest will be shoulder mounts. The Kudu and gemsbok are going to be floor pedestals. The Blue Wildebeest will be a wall pedestal and not pictured, a zebra, is going to be a rug.

Here's a better photo of the warthog-he officially measured 35 5/16. According to last years SCI Bowhunting book that would put him at #19 in the world! I am ecstatic! :teeth:
