      Have a great hunt with them. Hope you are headed back over soon. Just back from Namibia, and I am off to Argentina for ducks and dove next summer, so will be '13 before I can head back to Africa. Will try to take my son again. Can't afford elephant, so trying to decide whether to repeat leopard or buff.
