I got the word this morning. The Lord Derby Eland I took in Cameroon after Christmas last year was awarded the best trophy taken with a member of the Zimbabwe Proffesional Hunter and Guide Association outside of Zimbabwe.

Iím pretty excited. I took it with Mayo Oldiri Safari and Guave Johnson was my PH. They want me to put it in for SCI but Iíve resited the temptation so far. Guave lives near Vic Fills in Zimbabwe.

I love bushbucks! Also cape buffalo. Iím pretty focused on those two. With the exception of one situating and a bongo, hopefully in the not to distant future.

I think bushbucks are the most challenging common plains game to hunt and I decided I wanted to become really good at it. I sort of get the 10,000 hours of doing something to ďmaster itĒ idea but that seems a bit hard to monitor for hunting so I decided I wanted to take 100 bushbuck Rams as my goal. Iím at th 50 Ram mark after the last trip. Just 50 more to go.

Fantastic!

Are you having a taxidermy mount built?
What configuration?
