    Have been reading here for a while as I intend one day to make it over there and thought maybe sooner might be better than later. I am a 51yr old solo dad to a 15yr son and have been into shooting/hunting all my life. Have always had a thing for kudu horns and would love one day to get one. At the moment I am going through the motions of planning a hunt there and figuring if I actually can afford it, then I saw the Bob Puckett Huntershill deal and thought wow. Shame its only for 1 as my son wants to come as well, hopefully someone else will have a great offer like that next year maybe. Anyway time to keep searching this brilliant website.

    Thanks to all and cheers

    Neil

    Hey Neil,
    Welcome to the forum! Give us a better I idea of what type of trip you would be interested in. How many days, how many hunters/non-hunters, species and I am sure that you will get loads of messages.

    Take Care,
    Marius Goosen

    Hi Neil,

    I would be more than happy to put something together for you. You and your son could hunt together, he would only pay the observer rate and trophy fees for his hunt. let me know roughly the species you are looking for and I'll see what we can do to make it work

    Neil,

    Welcome to AH. See it doesn't take a day and you get people offering to help you out. There is nothing better than a father/son hunt. Go make a memory!
