    Myself and friend Tom travel from Texas on a 10 day African Safari to Namibia to hunt plains game. Shooting our TROPHY animals in just a matter of days, both filled remainder of time shooting CULLS, and myself - a whole lot of BIRDS when they came in !??!

    Tom recovered his 13+ animals, out of 12- I did not recover a kudu and impala.

    An outstanding resort and target rich 75,000 acre ranch. Both guides were ELITE in their experience and assistance- more than we could ask for.

    The STAFF back at the lodging were helpful, accommodating and a pleasure to socialize with.

    If you looking for a 5 star AFRICAN HUNTING adventure, this ranch is it !

    glad you had a good time/hunt at ozondjahe. i dont want to put a damper on your enjoyment, but i must confess the video/music doesnt do a lot for me. it would have been more interesting to have shown a bit of the lodge etc along with some of the animals being taken, instead of a parade of animals being arrowed one after another. not sure the slow motion playbacks were needed either. i feel that these types of video and headings of, "20+ kill shots on loads of animals" or "target rich", doesnt reflect that well on hunting........................regards mike

    Mike,...
    Thanks for your opinion. All entitled to them.
    I make my videos as I see fit. I found that 10 days of amazing action warrented a fast paced, action sequence to mimic the "target rich " environment this ranch had to offer.
    I've been to many ranches that lacked such action and made for tuff and slow hunting. Going to a well established ranch and having the season and little rainfall all made for condusive elements to make for great hunting.
    My style of video and view is opposite of yours - no worries. - c

    What distance were you guys shooting? Looked like some string jumps. I'd like to do a crossbow hunt there.

    We were shooting mostly 20 yard flat. However, ranges did vary from as close as 15 yard up to 35 yard.

    Looks like you had a good to great time.

    Video was built for You Tube i see and you did a good job. It is hard to build a video that appeals to everyone. Some times the music or the sequence is what is taken objection to. For 2 hunters the action needed to be fast paced to get the footage in. Or you could have built 2 separate videos for the 2 of you and showed a little more slow paced format.

    You built a self video that you shared with us and you did a good job in my opinion.

    By the way you have some nice trophy's.

    Love the video. I don't listen to that kind of music much but it fits the video and you did a great job.

    I too am glad that you had a good time and a successful hunt. I also think from a technical aspect the video was done quite well. However, I do tend to agree with Mike that the video seems to showcase a 'parade of animals being arrowed one after another' rather than portraying an overall field and hunting experience. Just my view.
