    Gert was my ph when I hunted in Namibia with another company in 2007. He really worked hard to get me the best trophies possible during my hunt. In six days I killed a 5-inch steenbok, a 50-inch kudu, a 16.5-inch springbok, a 15.5 inch springbok, a 36-inch gemsbok bull and a big Hartmann's Zebra stallion all on communal land. This is all when I weighed 90 pounds more than I do now.
    Gert is an awesome ph that I would hunt anything with anywhere.
    I still think it was the most amazing hunt that I will ever experience. I've been told that guys spend their lives trying to recreate the magic of their first safari.

    This hunt is now discounted for 2011 only. Take 10-percent off daily rates and 15-percent off trophy fees. Also, after the trophy oryx has been taken, hunt cull oryx for $100 each.

    Gert, that sounds like a wonderful hunt. What distances do you travel per day, how much does each member carry, and what is the terrain like (so I can get my fitness levels up)? Will you also be offering hunts like these in 2012?

    Great offer Gert,
    I am everyone participating in such a hunt will put it up there as a high-light in their personal hunting experiences. It is different and very challenging.

    I have hunted like this in the Ugab river (Namibia) years ago, also in the Northern Cape and Kalahari and today still - years after - it remains my hunting high-lights in the 33 years i hunted RSA and Namibia.

    However, as i am residing in Namibia, and not being a trophy hunter, i would love to see you putting up a similar hunt package in 2012 for meat hunters only - i am convinced you will have a sell-out. I will deffenitely be very interested.

    If anyone would like a backpack meat/cull hunt I'm sure we could arrange that. PM me if you are interested and I will get a price.

    I will check on this. Yes, we will offer this hunt in 2012. But, the prices will probably rise a small amount.

    Thanks Jriley,
    So far it is myself and Docman (both Namibian residents) who are interested in backpacking meat/cull hunt. As this year's cull-hunting time is running out, keep us "biltong hunties" in mind when you do offer backpack hunts for 2012 please.


    Self control out of the equation....:whistling:

    Gert is hunting right now but will be back in a few days. As soon as I get the 2012 prices I will post them. If anyone would like to check availability for dates, just email me and I will get back to you as soon as I talk to Gert.

    Thanks
