The photos were taken by my taxidermist, Jerry Huffaker. I picked them up upon my return from a pronghorn hunt in far NW Texas. They are from my 2016 hunt in Zimbabwe. I am pretty pleased.

When I arrived home this crate was here having been delivered a day prior. This, still unopened, from a trip to Namibia in 2018. The taxidermy work was done in Namibia.

Ed, those came out really nice. Really like the Buff. Those two Kudu are nice as well. Is the other a waterbuck?

Huffaker does excellent work! He’s done several things for me over the years.

That's a good looking bushbuck. Your kudu on the right might have got the full shoulder at my house. He has a great shape.

Another +1 for Huffaker. He's done work for me including a kudu pedestal. Great guy too.

Ed those look GREAT!


He spoke in tears of 15 years his dog and him traveled about. The dog up and died. She up and died....After 20 years he still grieves.
Bravo

Hard to beat a nice zebra rug. That's a beauty.

How come the Cheetah couldn't make it, Ed?

That would have been a cool mount.
