    A very warm welcome to our most popular Bush Breaking Newsletter of the year! It is indeed a great honor to present to you -Wintershoek Johnny Vivier Safaris - Top Trophies of the year 2011!! As well as the categories; Rifle shot of the year, Bow shot of the year, & Under "Teens" Young Hunters of the year.

    With the 1st year of operating in all 4 of our unique areas under our belts, we can boast that each and every client that hunted with us this year took quality trophies in all 4 of our hunting areas. In actual fact, the superior quality of our animals has been so phenomenal throughout the year, that it has been an extremely difficult task for us to narrow down the top trophies to being only 25 photos. Therefore, with great consideration and fairness which applies to all 4 of our areas that yielded the most amazing trophies this year, we have selected 55 specimens that we would consider to be the WJVS Trophies of the year 2011.

    Our trophy selection has been based on the following criteria: The challenge of the hunt: The quality of the Trophy: The difficulty in hunting the species:The overall appearance and presentation of the trophy. Our proven track record of supplying our clients with remarkable trophies and unforgettable safaris is legendary; our repeat business can attest to this! Please enjoy and acknowledge the superior quality that each and every animal deserves.

    Nice to see lots of young happy faces.

    Strikingly, A Darted Rhino Hunt?
    Can you still do those? Obviously, but... wonder where.
    I may just have to drop by one of those shows and ask some more questions.
