    Hi Guy's

    Thanks for all the nice comments it is appreciated!

    JP thank you for a great time we sure had fun, that plank in the tree is one mothered of improvisation that I am not likely to forget. Bricksburn I am thinking of putting a flat screen tv up there as well the springbucks might be playing well the next time I am in a tree on a plank :laughing:.

    Best Regards
    Louis van Bergen

    I forgot to mention that Louis brought a cushion for the second evening's hunt. He was in the lap of luxury. Thankfully , we only had to wait 90 minutes for the gemsbok to show. I really appreciate my treestands back home and tree with no thorns. Thanks for the comments, happy hunting. jp
