    All the animals look to be good quality but that impala and nyala are dream animals for sure.

    Looks like a great hunt. Fun to take someone new to Africa and watch them take some trophies. Nice Nyala. The mass in the horns make him look shorter. Darn nice bull. Congrats Bruce

    Sestoppelman,

    Welcome home and I salute you as a proper Father.
    Proper Fathers are mighty scarce these days.
    Because of your diligence, that son of yours will grow up to be a fine and proper man.

    Regards,
    Velo Dog.

    I want to give a big shout out to Afton Guest House in Joberg. They were there to help get me thru SAPS both ways and took us right to our gates as well. On return our flight left Polokwane 2 hours early due to a flight change and we didn't get the word to Afton, but they showed up at Jo anyway and helped facilitate the whole process for us. They off great service at a reasonable price. I hate to say this but its easier to get a rifle thru Joberg than it is to get one thru JFK! No joke.

    You mean a service provider did not have to be told what your needs were?
    They did not have to be told that airlines change schedules?
    All on their own?
    Perhaps there are a few folks in the Taxidermy and Shipping industry that should be sent over to these guys for some training!

    That is a nice change. Someone who knows there job and gets it done right.

    A++ for Afton on that one.

    This is Zephyr from Zimbabwe who we spent a few days hunting with. He helped us load up the nyala after we got him, though he wasn't there at the taking. He is a very good hunter and friendly as well.

    The python and rhino really add a special note to the trip...cherries on top of the sundae.

    Your son performed in a stellar fashion! You guys will be sharing memories of this trip as long as you are breathing.
