    Default ZIMBABWE: More Matetsi Unit 1 Reports from Farren Safaris

    As I stated in an earlier post, I will continue to post pics as clients forward them. This couple from the Southwest US just finished up a safari with us
    last week. The only thing on his wish list he did not get was a leopard. The trail cam showed a nice tom leopard on the bait each night but was either run off by lions or left on
    its own just before daylight. We cannot night hunt in the Matetsi area. Ken put in a great effort on the leopard and managed to get some great other trophies in between times in the blind.

    Nice 41 inch buff with great bosses.

    Nice warthog


    Kudu


    41 inch sable

    Very nice trophies.
    That would have been quite an icing on the cake to get the Leopard to.
    Nicely set trophy pictures. Have to like the stripes on that Kudu.

    Thanks for the compliments. The game is in the area, but we must give credit where it is due. Guav Johnson is a great PH that focused on putting his client on mature trophies. The client stepped up and did his job at this point.
