    I like your magazine, hell I love any Africa book, video, etc.

    I'd like to hear about each wildlife offense, educate me. Heck educate the rest of us. I'm willing to forgive but I have to see hard felt remorse or understand that the crime was minor or a misunderstanding on your part.
    My understanding of most wildlife crimes are based on greed, misunderstanding of the law, blatant disregard of laws, and stupidity. Because most of the time if you read the regulations they are usually pretty clear.

    It's true we are talking about you on this medium...the internet, we are NOT talking behind your back.

    We are openly talking about you in front of you and the world. Publicly.

    Why don't you save us all 100 skypes and phone calls and PUBLICLY give us all your excuses and rationalizations as to why what you did really wasn't so bad and you had good intentions yada, yada, yada....

    As far as "doing your time"...all I can say is that the judge went way to easy on you and I am appalled that you were not imprisoned the first two times to be honest. You are a ... that profited handsomely by raping nature. I have no sympathy for you.

    There is no B.S. you can make up to convince me that what you did was "OK" or that there is a reasonable explanation why you were caught 3 times raping nature.

    You are just slightly better than the people whacking the horns off the Rhinos. I hope this follows you everywhere you go.

    Bell407 ironic that your handle is the name of a helicopter. P.S. tell your brother I will NOT be renewing my subscription I support the legal and sustainable use of wildlife!

    "Terminater", I was 100% guilty and got 30 months from a qualified judge. Only a few are interested and the whole yada yada yada will take ages to write. I am a hopeless typist so Skype me. I will be glad to chat. Look forward to hearing from you. Regards, Jeff

    It's a lot easier to give forgiveness for a first time boo-boo.
    But after shooting yourself in the foot time, after time, after time, it's harder to believe anything except that you're either daft or an habitual criminal that is damaging to my favorite activity.

    EDIT: to add, you were only caught 3 times.

    How many more offenses did you actually do and got away with it?

    Answer, TOO MANY!

    Hi AHMike, daft, irresponsible and stupid. Will never go down that road again. I feel like the guy on the sitcom, "My name is Earl". I just want to make things right. Done my time, got a job and starting my life over. Any other suggestions will be welcomed. Regards, Jeff

    Donate all the money you made on the trips where you didn't get caught to some charity protecting birds of prey....

    70,000 Brit Pounds x what...10 times = 700,000 Brit Pounds (over $1MILLION USD) That is a crap ton of money you made. Who knows what the real number it is, maybe twice or three times that.

    Tell us, how many times did you get away with it and what princely sum did you make on raping nature?

    I am sure you are too chicken to tell us the truth but if you did it would at least tell me you are not in denial about your guilt

    I don't feel sorry for you banking over $1M by raping nature. Sorry. And I hope nobody is stupid enough to reward you further by buying your book

    I also am going to start a global campaign with SCI and other organizations to make sure no member gives anything to do with Future Publishing (Pty) another dime.

    I like most knew nothing about this until today and much of this is a bit confusing and of course WE dont really know all the facts of the case. While what Jeff was convicted of is of course very objectionable, it appears at least from info put forth on this forum that he paid his price. Fine so be it. Lets not let our righteous indignation get too far ahead of the facts. I dont skype.

    I take it that you have no desire to tell us how many times you DIDN'T get caught and how much money you made with your illegal rape of nature?

    Not surprising. You probably have a giant pile of money stashed and you wouldn't want anybody to start looking for it.

    I have no desire to talk to you if you can't publicly explain yourself to everyone here.

    Righteous indignation?

    Try disgust.

    In my book this guy is right there with the Rhino Poachers and no matter what you do(support their magazine or not) I will make sure no publication he works for profits from his disgusting activities via MY money nor anybody I can inform of this situation.

    Don't feel sorry for this guy. He got a slap on the wrist and probably has a pile of money sitting somewhere waiting for him.

    I must confess the level of anger displayed here by some, sort of baffles me. I am much less offended by what happened here than things taking place in my own country by our wonderful young President.

    I am no less disgusted by THE President of the U.S.

    He is not MY President.

    Also, do the people on this forum realize that most of the Rhodesian SAS during the war with the rebels was engaged in wholesale poaching and profiteering from wildlife under the cover of the war?

    Perhaps our fellow criminal has been profiting by the rape of nature well before his first conviction going all the way back to when he was in the R SAS.

    Do you not read what I have said above. Call me as it will take about 3 hours to explain. The anti terrorist police that caught me and the assist forfeighting unit had everything of mine. And short of putting on rubber gloves and going through 20 years of statements found nothing. Would you like the investigating officers number? I take it you are perfect and have never done wrong.
