    Well I having been watching this with interest and I am going to throw a little twist in here for all too consider. I know this will in a way be self-serving for our SCI Chapter, but what the heck?

    I have noticed a few bidders posting with their bids going to an as yet undetermined SCI chapter. I realize that lots of people do not yet belong to SCI, and many who are members do not actually belong to a chapter.........which could be keeping some of you from bidding on this hunt.

    We recently started a new SCI chapter in Manitoba, Canada and in fact just received our charter at the SCI Convention a few days ago. Our plan is to use future proceeds to help support big game studies in our province, to fund youth initiatives and hunter advocacy. Our first fundraising banquet is still months away.

    So for Canadian hunters out there who would like to bid and who do not belong to SCI or to a chapter, the SCI Manitoba chapter would be very appreciative in receiving the funds from you if you are the successful bidder. You can be sure the money would be used for worthwhile projects that further wildlife conservation and promote hunting. Just something to think about if you have been hesitating to bid.

    And lastly I would like to encourage all of you who do not belong to SCI or to a local chapter, to take the plunge and join. It is the premier hunting organization in the world and it fights the good fight for wildife and hunters all over the globe and in your back yard. :)

    End of plug........back to regular programming.;)

    to whom ever wins this auction you will not be disappointed. I hunted with Chris on my first safaris this last May-June and had the best hunting experience of my life. I am an outfitter here in the states and have been hunting over 30 yrs and can honestly say he runs a first class operation. Chris dose as advertised and will not over sell him self he tells as it is instead of what everybody wants to hear. I did not get all the animals that I was after but that is hunting and chris put in every effort to make it a hunt of a life time.
    (Chris that sure is a good lookin Nyala and Kudu you have in this post) Good luck to all and I wish I could do this hunt myself.

    I guess I should have elaborated on the animals I did take or did not take. The only animal I did not get was my waterbuck. I hunted for 10 days and took Kudu, Eland, Nyala, Blesbok, warthog, Impala, Black and Blue wildebeest. Not many hunts you can do and have a 90 percent harvest rate and all animals were top notch.
    Again thanks Chris.

    Yes it does! Congratulations FFemt5287!
    Thank you and please let us know which SCI chapter you wish to make your donation to so that we can finalize the auction payment. Not to influence your decision, but if you are as of yet still undecided about the chapter, I appreciated Skyline suggestion to help his newly formed SCI chapter... but of course the decision is yours.
    Do not hesitate to contact Chris in regard to your hunt. I know that you will have an amazing safari with him and he'll take good care of you. Take lots of pictures!

    Thank you very much, Jerome! Since I'm a recently new member of the Connecticut chapter, I feel that they should receive my donation. They are a recently formed chapter. I will be contacting Chris soon to coordinate this hunt, as I'm going to try and catch the week in SA after my 12 days with Martin Pieters in Zimbabwe.

    Thank you both for this great opportunity!
