    Only have an impression of the man from speaking with him. I have not hunted with him.
    The impression was a good one by the way.

    I have not hunted with them, but I have friends who have and they had a good time. They do a fair amount of business with the SCI chapters in WI.

    I put a deposit on a hunt with them four years ago, but was unable to make it due to business considerations; I told him 6 months before the hunt I would not be able to make it and did not ask for my deposit back or for it to go to another date. He got a bit "chippy" about my cancellation, but I didn't ask for my $ back and there was nothing I could do about the business reasons for me not to go. It is the only hunt in over 25 years that I had to cancel.

    I spent a good bit of time researching him and talked to several references, including if I remember correctly, a gentleman who had hunted with him twice. All was favorable and mentioned that you hunt with him, as he runs a small operation. It's a bit of a challenge to get to his operation and I think the best was to fly to Keetmanshoop and he picks you there, or air charter. Don't hold me to that, however.

    I was looking at going to Namibia this year and had no reservations about trying to book something, but I found an operation that was a bit easier on getting to.

    Hope above is helpful.

    Very helpful, and I appreciate it. I'm wanting to go to Namibia, so I kind of narrowed it down to him, Kowas, and Orpa. Any other recs or ideas would be helpful and appreciated as well. I would like to know more about Ozondjahe's operation as well.
