Default All Africa 2017 mounts complete

Well, after I did the finish work on my impala and blue wildebeest today, my entire 2017 Africa Death & Whiskey wall is complete.

Lots of good memories up there and I'm proud of how they turned out.

I wish we had picked up a few more of those. We picked them up at the SA version of the Hunter's Extravaganza. That show made our show look like a toy expo. They didn't have an "junk" booths with flashing lights. Quality throughout.

What a great trip. Can't wait to start on my animals next!
