Hunt In: where the wild things are
Default Taxidermy is ready!

We were fortunate enough to hunt with Bennie and his family at Lategan Safaris this past July 2017. We hunted 3 different areas near the border of Free State and Lesotho…including the Lategan home place. Bennie is a fantastic outfitter and his prices are very reasonable.

We had the taxidermy done in South Africa and I just received word that our trophies are ready. They’re now in the hands of Speedbird Logistics and the big crate will soon be crossing the pond. I’m as excited as a kid at Christmas.

My youngest son and I each took 4 animals. And since our “Smithsonian Starter-Kit” in beautiful Katy, TX is running out of wall space, we decided to shoulder mount only 2 of the 8…the Gemsbuck and Lechwe.

We’re having skull mounts done on the Kudu, Blesbuck, Cape Buffalo, Spring Buck, and Black Wildebeest. And we're having the Zebra hide tanned.

I've included photos from our hunt and will update once the taxidermy clears customs in Houston, TX.

I'm so thankful the good Lord makes these things possible. God is good!

Thanks...We shoulder mounted the Gemsbuck and Lechwe, but yes...skulls on the others. The Supreme High Commander requires all dead animals remain in the man cave...and we're kinda running out of wall space.

And we don't need a bigger house...that's the other thread on here.
