    Yip, will not trade it for the world.:barmy: Hunting NW of Omaruru in May - Kudu. Then early June off to a farm in the Maltahohe district - Springbuck, and then late June to a farm in the Karibib district - Gemsbuck. A friend also invited me end July for a hunt in Otjiwarongo district - Eland - but with all the hunting before that i may well be stocked to the brim allready by that time - maybe i will just join the trip for the outing.

    I take it you are from Namibia?
    Where do you gentlemen (Kuduman incl.) plan your hunts this season, and what species?

    Hey FHM,
    I'm down the road from you,in the Bay..! I'm trying to find a fellow hunter from the USA who might bring some fibre-optic sights for me. I've lost money trying to order over the internet. Brownell's has front sights for the CZ 550's which are better for 'older' eyes.:cool:

    On June 13th,my wife and I will leave Dulles for a 12 day hunt with Ozondjahe Safaris. At 52 years of age, I probably shouldn't wish time to fly by so quickly but I have been for about a year now. It hasn't been working. Obtaining a leopard permit and a extra 5 days in Cape Town thereafter for a anniversary celebration with my wife has me feeling like a teenager days away from getting a driver's license.

    Thank you Jerome and Lori Ginn for making the endeavor all the more pleasant and exciting.

    PS...sorry I didn't begin my time here in the newbie's crib. I saw this thread and had to leap!

    Welcome to AH Robert! Glad you decided to jump in. I have a feeling that by mid-May you'll have your bags packed, ready and sitting by the door. :plane:

    Check the thread list as we just did one a week or so ago on this subject. Lots of good advice. Mainly take lots of pics, enjoy the change, and try not to get impatient, its easy. Have fun!!
