    Congrat's Herve on the first of probably "more" safaris. Getting one's self hooked is bad enough, now you have your son and girlfriend hooked also! Truely not a bad problem to have. Great pictures by the way!

    Thank you all for your warm messages. I really appreciate that you post a comment.

    In fact, I imagined the post cards so that, without a word, a hunter like you guys could figure out from the set of images what happened during the hunting action, from beginning to end. Well, I guess it worked!

    I spend more time getting shadows out of the picture. Very creative to get them in the picture.
    AWESOME!

    Day 3 - 6th animal of our safari, the second for Marie


    This was not really a trophy animal given the broken tuss. Marie was very disapointed. The PH, very Professional, acknowledged that he made a mistake in judging the trophy and took this one for him (he was also the owner of the ranch were Marie shot the warthog).
    I will translate her reaction and the discussion that we had tomorrow. It is so funny to listen to it on on the video!

    I did some minor translation for myself and it is pretty funny.
    The look on her face when she is assessing the boar says it all.

    Congrats to Marie nothing to be disapointed about an awesome stalk, a perfect shot and an animal is down showing respect for the animal with a quick clean kill thats a trophy in itself.

    Hi There - We were 3 hunters, myself (herve, 47), Marie (my girlfriend, 47), and Pierre-Antoine my son, 14 years old. I would like to congratuate you three, glad everybody got some nice animals, and that you lot are enjoying my beloved country. Now look I know everybody at the moment is well done, I also say well done, but I want to thank you and your family for teaching me more of my country , the places and things i never knew of, I can relate to now.

    If you ever make a DVD of your hunting holiday, I would be honourd to buy the second copy, from you to watch it whenever I miss the bush, keep the stories and fotos coming,

    Enjoy LIFE AND SHOOT STRAIGHT AND ALWAYS TEACH PIERRE the rights and wrongs of the bush

    GOOD LUCK
