    SOUTH AFRICA: KMG Hunting Safaris

    Well, one of my long-time Clients just came back from a successful hunt with Marius, KMG Hunting Safaris. On his list was mainly Spotted hyena, others to be followed after that. The baits were prepared Long before, so it was just a matter of time, to be there at the right time. See the result...

    Lion - stalk vs. bait

    Thanks Shakari. You see? A foreign hunter comes to RSA, prepared himself for that what comes and - again - has to trust. OR: has to accept the practise.

    Lion - stalk vs. bait

    Thatï½´s what I meant with trusting. As far as I know the law says that the Lion to be hunted must be there for at least 6 months.

    Lion - stalk vs. bait

    Donï½´t want to say pro or contra to any of the types, to me itï½´s a personal decision. Just two things to think about: - Spot and stalk in a - lets say 20000 acres area, fenced. Is that a "real" hunt? Many hunters say that they never want to hunt in any fenced areas, no matter how big...

    SOUTH AFRICA: KMG Did It Again

    As promised here is my short report of my latest trip with KMG. We, my friend Ingo and I had 8 wonderful and special hunting days. I took all of them to be out in the bush, knowing that I will miss it from the very first day after returning home... Ingo was satisfied after 6 days and relaxed...

    Although this was not a 60 Kudu bull it is still a once in a lifetime trophy

    Superb bull! Congrats on this unique trophy! Anytime I would prefer shooting a bull like this instead of a "normal" bull.

    Anyone used Maple Freight in Zimbabwe or Spherical Freight in South Africa to ship trophies home?

    I used them a few times in the past, for my own and also clients trophies. I had never any problems. Always got informed what where and when, recieved trophies in good condition (letï½´s say 99%) and it took not too long, around 6 months after hunt was finished. We here in Germany have a few...

    DNA test on hunting trophy

    So, Bart has just left my shop. From my point of view I can say the following: 1) It is definitly not an old mount, this one I saw is maximum a few years old. The artificial jawset what was used is a modern - in South Africa produced - one, the base is made from fresh PU-foam, still in...

    DNA test on hunting trophy

    The first step of tanning a skin is to put it into acid solution, that stopps all bacteria growing! So hair slippage starts before that. The problem is often you canï½´t see it before tanning. Unfortunately I had this before on african skins. They came in in optical good condition, but while...

    Hi folks, before I say a word about the caracal, I have to see it directly, that will happen within the next days. Itï½´s still open! But about the Gemsbuck I have to tell my experience, in 95 % of headshots the skull is destroyed - and gemsbuck skull bone structure is not that hard as eland...

    Ok, Ladies and Gents, I want to share the story of my and my friendï½´s latest hunt with KMG-Hunting-Safaris, owned by forum member Marius Goosen. The plan was to go for Lioness first in Kalahari region, than go way south to Eastern Cape, KMGï½´s main region to hunt plainsgame. So we arrived on...

    Buffalo Outfitter in Zimbabwe

    Personally I can recommend Terry Fenn, Chinanga Safaris. Hunted with him twice for elefant and it was so much great. He hunts different areas depending on what you want.

    Trophaendienste Taxidermy Namibia

    That's no speciality of african taxidermists, look at some crap coming from there, and they all "know" their game... A good taxidermist can deal with game from all over the world. He knows anatomy, movements, and all that need to be known. Go to the taxidermist, look how they work and if YOU...

    Not happy with my trophies

    Sorry, but a good taxidermist will NOT drill holes in horns to add a tag! I saw it a few times, canï½´t believe how they go with clients trophies... a shame! Look at other RSA-taxidermist, there are some who do their homework very well, so no need for the others do like this. I would...
