Wow what a trip you had.  we are on a count down for our trip the S.A. 11 months

Thank you for sharing
You worked to hard and paid a lot of money for that new bow. Why would you trust protecting it to anything less than Thunderbird Epoxy!!!

Where are you going?  If I can be of any help let me know.  Have you booked your flights yet?  If not, I highly recommend Travel Express from Hamilton Mt.  Lori Guinn is the owner.  Think she only charged me $75. to do all the flight bookings, motel reservations, etc.  She monitored the flights up to the day I left.  My flight was cancelled from Denver to JFK at the last minute.  She got my flight changed and rebooked.  I didn't know anything about it, but she took care of everything.  I still made it to JFK in time for my flight to SA.  She also booked all the luggage straight through to Namibia which was great as I didn't have to clear customs with my luggage, only my carry on bag.
I can give you more info if you want - just send me a note.

Finally got a nice photo / video program put together and backed it up with traditional African music from my Namibia bow hunt.  Will always bring back good memories.

I have shown my hunt program to many people and groups and all have enjoyed it.  Wish I would have done this on my many other hunts.  Found a gentlemen to switch the folder from MOV to DVD and burned it on a disc.  Now we can just pop it into the DVD player and watch on a large screen TV.  The traditional African music really added to the presentation.

Well taxidermist is done and everything has been sent to the shipping agent.  I just paid that bill, so all my animals should be heading to the USA sometime next week.  I am excited to get them.  However, it will still be some time on the Kudu and Gemsbuck, as I am taking them to a taxidermist in Wyo. for the shoulder mounts.  Everything else is Europian mounts and rugs.

Thanks Randy - sometimes a guy just gets lucky with shots and hunting.  Had a great time in Namibia.  Have a couple friends that are going with the same outfitter this summer (African winter).  Hope they do just as good.  Just got my hides and horns back.  Also took the capes of the Kudu and Gemsbuck to Cheyenne for shoulder mounts.  This might be the last of the mounts.  Think the wife is going to put a stop to it.  The basement is full!!!

I'm so glad you had such a good hunt.  I've read all your stories, and it makes me happy to hear of fellow hunters success.  Putting.music to the.videos was a really good move.

Adding traditional African music sure adds to the video / photo program.  I couldn't understand what the words were on some of the songs, so I sent a copy to my outfitter.  He and his wife both speak African as a first language and I wanted him to tell me what the song was about.  Even he didn't know, as it was bushman language.  He said that he would check with them and let me know.  A lot of drums in the songs as well. 

Thanks for the compliment on the stories.  I have had several published in TradArchersWorld of various hunts, including many trips hunting javelina in Texas to some caribou, grizzly and moose hunts in British Columbia.  Think I also sent in a story of my mountain lion hunts.  I always keep journals of my hunts so I can get the stories straight.  It is fun to re-read the journals after a few years.  There are always items that I had forgotten about.
