    So far Wade@crosshairconsulting has done a great job and been a big help booking with Andy Renton of Kei River Hunting Safaris for a 10 day hunt. Great and prompt response to my many question from both before the trip. Debbie likewise first rate with the flight arragements. :) Wife and I are looking forward to a couple of days in their beach house on the Indian ocean before the hunt. Lots of planning and shooting getting ready. My 300 WSM Kimber Montana always shoots <1 moa 5 shot groups with 180 gr Barnes TSX. My new Ruger Hawkeye Alaskan 375 shoots 1 to 1 1/2 moa with Swift A-frame 300 gr (at least that is all I can do with it as I am not used to the heavier caliber) . These should do well on game from blue duiker up to cape eland. I will post my experience and success when I return.

    Hi Bangor bob
    I have hunted with Andrew i Sep. 08, it was my first trip to Africa. Andrew and his wife Sharon are very nice people, they will make you and your family fell very wellcome. Andrew has hunting reights on some very impressive areas in Eastern Cape. Ranging from the coast to mountain tops, both fencets and open country.

    I got all the trophies I came for and they all took gold in SCI.

    Please say hi to Andrew and Sharon from Poul from Denmark.

    Have a nice trip.
