    Hey gang, my trophies are in a truck south bound from New York City. Hopefully, they should be at my door steps by Tue & Wed.

    Well gang, my trophies finally arrived, but unfortunately my joy was short lived. The crate and three of my mounts were damaged in transit! My favorite animal the Kudu was damaged the most, the nose and mouth are crushed and ripped from the weight of what ever was on top. The impala has a broken ear and a the neck is broken, the mount doesn't look right. The wildebeest suffered the least damage, only some abrasion to the nose and skin and color are missing. The shield where the Gemsbok is mounted has several dents and scratches. So, instead of celebrating and hanging stuff on the walls, I'm now dealing with broken mounts and an insurance claim. Here are some pictures.

    That really sucks. I would be bitching a storm at a few people.

    Thanks J1.

    HR; I'm bitching, trust me. Unfortunately, I'm at the mercy of the trucking company & the shipper. Thankfully I have insurance, but the hassle to deal with them is another headache.

    Waiting for so long, to have my shipment delivered damaged. I'll keep you guys posted on what happens.

    Here is a picture of one of my walls, enjoy!

    Wow. What a bummer. I sure hope everything works out somehow.
