    My buddy Denny and his hunting partner just returned from Denny's 3rd hunt with Chris Troskie, his partner Gary's first. Between them they took 18 animals and had a great time. Between them they took that I know of, Cape kudu, Cape eland, waterbuck, rhebok, black, copper and white springbok, mountain reedbuck as well as some of the more common species. All at least near record book animals and most would book. I dont have too many other details, just saw Denny today at the range and he was still suffering a bit of jet lag and post-safari withdrawls. I used to call it post-safari bummer! As I get more info I may post more.

    Unsolicited recognition. Very nice touch Chris,
    You obviously know that when you take care of your customers, they will take care of you.
