    Lately I've been in contact with Jerome from Ozondjahe Safaris. Sounds like it's the place for me and my longbow.
    Now the fun begins. I find hashing out the details amost as much fun as the hunt.
    Is nine months ahead too early to begin packing?

    You will have a great hunt with Jerome
    No 9 months is not enough-it cuts the planning and packing fun time down :)
    You will be banned here if you don't write up your hunt when you get back. WITH PICTURES!

    Cliffy, no worries on the pics...
    Last trip to SA I took over 450 stills and 13+ hours of video (Got my Impala on film at the "Turn your head and cough" moment) :biggrin:

    Brickburn, have to see if I can figure out how to edit/post vids here...

    Also have my zebra on tape, right up until I let go of the string, when I kicked the tripod over (oops)

    Ok, I give up - how do you post vids here? Do I have to use you tube?
    Got the files on the computer, but no url's for them.

    Okay, think I got it....
    Nock shattered when I released, so arrow was going pretty much sideways - but it worked.
    Nice of him to come back - no tracking. :cool:
