It would appear I have been hoodwinked or I’m just the victim of a bad situation.
I was informed today by my contact at Laing International that my shipment from South Africa containing the trophies collected during my last two hunts has been lost.
I can’t say this was a complete surprise. I had a devil of a time arranging the shipment with Highveld Taxidermy and the exportation arrangements with Professional Trophy Exports were painful too. Painful to my paitence and bank account.
A blog reader who has his own firm for arranging trophy imports suggested maybe this is all due in part to the World Cup. That may be true and it may all sort out. I’ll keep you posted just in case you are planning an adventure there yourself.
In the meantime, most of today was spent shooting video and taking and editing photos for various projects. (I did sneak in a bit of handgun practice with a Kimber Crimson Carry.) I uploaded three articles today and must complete three more before I leave next week to build a new bathroom at my hunting camp with the help of my sister and Gunwriting Assistant.
