My son and I just got back from Limcroma Safaris. All I can say is it was a trip of a lifetime and Limcroma Safaris is first class in every aspect. I'll try and post a few pictures as we were able to take 9 animals.

Went with the thought of not bringing any animals back and we're bringing everything back. Plans are made to be changed?

I'm the farthest thing from an African expert but those look like tremendous representations of each species. Congratulations! Was that your first time to Africa? TODDY

First trip to Africa. Two years ago found out my son had an enlarged left ventricle and needed open heart surgery to enlarge opening. I decided life is too short and decided we needed to go on a special bow hunting trip. Had a great trip with my son...a special thanks to my wife for supporting everything I do. Thanks!!!

I hunted with Limcroma a few years ago and couldn’t agree more. They’re a top notch safaris company. Congrats on taking some great trophies. Just because you returned home, doesn’t mean your hunt is over. Dipping & packing fees, shipping fees, customs broker fees. It all adds up, but it’s as simple as writing a check. You won’t regret bringing your trophies back. It’s worth every penny. I sent all of my hides off for tanning at one time and have been mounting one animal every year. Taxidermy doesn't have to break the bank. Who was your PH?

Chief, good point most legit taxidermist will hold a tanned cape and mount it on what ever payment schedule you set up. You could have one animal be completed every 6 months or one per year to spread the pain. Or leave it a European until ready to mount then cut the skull. I am about at capacity room wise. And so mainly Europeans now. But I still have 3 mounts in the pipeline to find room for.

The elk is next to rotate into the house. I have a full mount for sale in the classified section now to make some room. It’s a great deal for someone that doesn’t want to 1. Pay 4-6k for the mount 2. Pay for shipping home 3 wait a year.

Our PH was Guillaume...great guy although he was really sick while we were there. He was a real trooper and only after we told him to take a nap did he take us up on it. We told him we could look out the windows and wake him if anything interesting came in. Brad was really pumped about the Warthog as his cousin asked him to shoot one for him. The Warthog was Brad's last animal and one of the tougher ones to get. Brad is bringing back the Warthog for his cousin to mount.

Congrats to you both. Great looking impressive animals you all got there! I really like that gemsbok with the curve in one horn. I love trophies with character.

Thanks!!! I love the curved horn gemsbok too and the really good news is it was considered a cull animal with a much reduced price. Life is good!!!
