    ALERT!!!! Important Notice for All Who Imported And Exported Trophies Into or From the U.S.

    I’m a lifelong hunter/fisherman. It’s part of my heritage. My trophies were imported in 2015 so I’m not part of this current issue but if I were, I’m not sure I’d opt out. A big part of me wants to “draw a line in the sand” and stand up to these bullies! I’m retired and have plenty of time...

    SOUTH AFRICA: Hunt Kubusi Safaris 2016

    Great post/photos. Keep it coming! My son and I hunted with Kubusi in 2014. First class outfit! We had a great trip. Ed could use some communication skill improvement. We learned that calling him was far better than e-mails.

    Santa came early! Trophies delivered!

    Finally got a chance to work on my bases. I used the materials from the shipping crate. They turned out OK but I hope to build something better in the spring. These will do for now. Here are some photos.

    SOUTH AFRICA: Plainsgame With Kubusi Safaris East Cape

    That he is! We doubled on Zebra and the fun began. I didn't think we'd ever get them loaded. I wasn't much help as I had arm surgery 6 months prior to our trip.

    SOUTH AFRICA: Plainsgame With Kubusi Safaris East Cape

    We went for 7 days and were pretty much done in 4. Took 11 animals in all. Started to shoot more but decided we would plan a return trip instead so we saved some for next time. I saw the Giraffe hunt video on Kubusi's page. Wow! Great shot on a great animal!

    SOUTH AFRICA: Plainsgame With Kubusi Safaris East Cape

    My son and I hunted with Kubusi in late May. We also had the good fortune to be guided by Hennie. He is as you say a hunting machine and a blast to be around! In fact all of the PH's we met were top notch as was Longmon, our tracker. . Wish we could have stayed longer but we certainly...
