    Yummy looking, what seasonings do you use to cook your meat? I love trying new things.

    on a lighter note...

    In my case I would sure hate to see what my crafting and cup making stuff would sell for! My children will probably take it to the dump, ah well, what can you expect?

    Basically, that was my reaction in a nut shell!

    Well, I applaud your honesty! I hope you were not upset by my comment. I have been on sites where folks were not particularly nice to each other and it struck a cord. However, perhaps there are things I do not know involved and that is your business. Regards, kudugirl aka echo.sue!

    What not to see outside your blind while bowhunting in South Africa

    I totally agree, I am pretty sure that had we seen it in the blind there would have been quite a load of laundry to be done and someone could have died, either from the snake, the fright, or the number of round going off inside the blind. Or perhaps the less then rosy smell once things calmed...

    What not to see outside your blind while bowhunting in South Africa

    As you are from Australia, I think you have some venomous nasty little snakes too don't you? I would love to photograph Australia! Keep on hunting and look where you are walking, k.

    What not to see outside your blind while bowhunting in South Africa

    Believe me I was taking some very dainty steps and my head was swiveling like LindaBlairs in The Exorcist! Suffice it to say I did not linger either.

    What not to see outside your blind while bowhunting in South Africa

    Thank you for your comment, I would have liked to have gotten clearer video but through a one way glass window it is a bit hard. And you probably could tell I was a little freaked out. I cannot imagine nearly stepping on a snake and am glad you did not. It could have been a very bad thing for...

    What not to see in South Africa outside your hunting Blind!

    This video was taken in 2018 in the Limpopo District during a bowhunt. I had my bow with me but no other weapons were available. We tried to manage to get out of the blind to take a shot but it heard the door open and quickly (very quickly) went into and hole a few feet away. The PH with us felt...

    I am sorry, but might I point out that snide remarks accomplish nothing! Respectful comments are appreciated by all however. But perhaps you are simply attempting to be funny and it fell flat? Hard to tell.

    Tipping Guide

    It seems to me that basing the tip on the day rate is encouraging expensive day rates without providing anything more than their normal service. Again please reflect on the fact that tipping in my opinion should be based on service and whether or not it is poor, good, or exceptional.

    Tipping Guide

    As someone who has spent more than 18 years in a service oriented job (waitress/bartender) I know that tipping is a very necessary part of any service oriented position including hunting lodges and professional hunters. I believe that it is really important however to tip in a way that promotes...

    I guess I might be getting old, but...

    I can say that I take my phone with me but it is turned off. I have such great luck that I would probably turn the stupid thing on and it would ding ding ding just as something that I really wanted to shoot came into the hide. I admit it is easy to use it for taking after the hunt photographs...

    Bowhunters left alone in their blinds

    Yes and I can say that having someone sick in close proximity to myself in a blind is not my idea of a great idea! Glad you did not get sick!

    Bowhunters left alone in their blinds

    My husband and I have hunted both South Africa and Namibia a number of times and most safari companies prefer to have a PH with the hunter during the hunt to facilitate not only knowing what truly is a trophy animal prior to the shot but to help with shot placement and recovery after the shot...

    SOUTH AFRICA: BOWHUNT: Bowhunting Trophies 2018

    That is a very true statement my hubby always says it all comes down to having everything well tuned including the shooter! I have always shot my game close and tried to be well practiced for my hunts, but no one that had hunted much can say they have never made a mistake. Good luck in the...

    SOUTH AFRICA: BOWHUNT: Bowhunting Trophies 2018

    Corrections: Yes I am not perfectly in tune, but my husband makes sure my bow is! I shoot a Diamond Razors Edge set at 50#'s. My arrow weighs 480 grams and the other head besides the Magnus Stinger is the Wasp for smaller animals. Thanks all for your nice comments.

    SOUTH AFRICA: BOWHUNT: Bowhunting Trophies 2018

    It did work out well and I will have to make sure I ask my husband for all the stats as I have forgotten the exact specifications, but I have a 26 1/2 inch draw length and was shooting 50#s. My arrows were heavy, I believe around 500 grains. I shot a magnus stinger for the larger animals and a...

    Here are some of the photos from our last trip to Africa in 2018. After an incredible trip to Kruger Park with Tsala Safari's and spending some lovely time with their family I got the chance to hunt a bit at Dries Visser because my husband got his black wildebeest on the first morning of his...

    Thank you so much for your comments. I appreciate them greatly. They are ceramic tiles that have been handpainted and then epoxy poured for durability. This makes them heat resistant. I use felt on the back for protection from scratching.
