    Late last February was blessed to go on a Cape Buffalo and Zebra bowhunt in S. Africa. I’d done other plains game before, but this was my first one for one of the Big Five. I came back home just as Covid was locking everything down. Just yesterday I got the mounts. Man, nothing like good taxidermy to re live the memory!
    I also have the hunt on film on my YouTube Channel [​IMG]

    Dang John great looking mount. It's so hard to tell how big those things are until you stand beside it in a pic.

    Thank you! I took that Kudu on my first trip. Like they all say, after going once, you'll be trying to plan a second trip!
