    A college buddy is working on a cape buffalo hunt with Wes Hixon Outfitters and a PH named Razzy Erasmus. It sounds like a pretty good deal and I'm thinking about maybe tagging along. Does anyone have experience with this outfit?

    Welcome to AH! Sorry I have not hunted with either of the guys but as I understand it Wes Hixon is an Agent selling hunts for outfitters in Africa, perhaps someone else on here have heard of them. where in South Africa would the hunt be done?

    I have hunted White-tailed Deer and Black Bears in Saskatchewan with an outfitter who goes through Wes Hixon's agency to book his hunts. I can for sure recommend Wes Hixon as a booking agent, as he deals with some top-notch outfits who provide great hunting experiences. I have bowhunted with Rassie Erasmus of Louwlardus Bowhunting Safaris, and I can definitely highly recommend him also, but I didn't know he used Wes Hixon as an agent, so maybe you are talking of someone else?

    Wow - I just asked this question a week ago and already so many responses. Thanks very much.

    About Rassie (not Razzy like I thought at first) this isn't the same Rassie as the one NDWildlifebio bowhunted with. James (college buddy) asked Wes Hixon the same question and was told no, this Rassie is a 51 year old PH who was a Magistrate Judge at one time, who has a wife named Kristel who is in the legal profession, and who has been a PH for 20 years or so. He has several concessions in Limpopo. We don;t have references yet but have a slew of good looking pictures and James plans to talk with them in person in Jan at the Dallas SCI show. So, does anyone know anything about this Rassie?
