    I just returned home ... not from South Africa ... but from Animal Artistry in Reno,NV after hearing that my trophies arrived. Upon leaving a fairly hefty deposit for a few mounts, memories from the hunt came flooding back; the type of memories that leave one daydreaming with a bit of a smile and a longing to return.
    About 6 mos ago, Henk Brink Outfitter & PH of Kido Safaris picked us up at the Richards Bay airport followed by a 2 hour trek to some fine hunting grounds. I couldn't have been more pleased ... camaraderie, Amarula with a tad of Jack by the campfires, biltong, sounds of the night and,of course, the stalks.
    Here are a few pics:

    Great photos, and you look as happy as a man can be. It must have been a wonderful experience! Great start to the story, too, so tell us more: The travel, the people, the place, the stalks, the hits (and the misses?). For those still waiting for their first Africa experience...
    Anyway, welcome aboard, I am sure you will enjoy the site.
