I am glad that you find the words and thoughts of others touching as not all men would admit this to themselves let alone others.
You are in an envious situation of making a living out of what you love to do and this shows by your actions. Each and every one of your clients both...
I want to thank you all for the kind words and I am glad that you also appreciate the "Extra" mile that Chris went for a client. It is not often that this happens or in my case, never before and will give those additional memories of such a wonderful hunt. Although it was not...
CT-Safaris Goes the Extra Mile for the Client
Most people on this forum know that I went on my first and probably last South African Safari in mid August 2011 with Chris Troskie of CT Safaris and due to medical conditions I was hindered from the start and although I had warned Chris at the...
That is terrific value even if you add another couple of trophies it is still very reasonable. I can not understand why it hasn't been "Snapped Up" already, if I didn't have to pay for my Taxidermy and Freight from last August I would be tempted for sure.
All the best from...
This time it worked fine, it brings back a lot of good memories from August 2011. Keep up the good work and I hope to see you again if God is good to me.
As said many times in the video, you 'Assist' those who are not as agile as they would like to be, fantastic food and the...
I purchased a second hand CZ550 in .375H&H that had shot a lot of game in Queensland and very accurate. I used this as my base for a Custom Rifle, had the barrel cut to 24" Recknagel Barrel Band, Front sight with Moon insert, Rear sight and Scope QD Bases in a Custom Made 1/4 Rib with All the...
The S&B are a truly magnificent scopes, I have a 1.1-4 x 24 Zenith with a FD7 reticule on the .375H&H and the 2.5-10 x 42 also a Zenith with the FD7 reticule on the 30.06 but both are in Recknagel QD Mounts and I have another set of rings for the .375H&H in anticipation of doing...
I'm afraid that it wasn't on the menu but she does like to cook European dishes for sure. I never went hungry which was the main thing but I am never a big eater so there was no problem.
The planning did come together thanks to your guidance and I would do it all again if the...
Thanks, it was a fantastic time and am very happy with the Waterbuck but if Chris had another 100mts of cable he wouldn't get the exercise to keep him fit to keep up with Sabina.... Ha Ha..
Thanks for the thoughts, Chris did a wonderful job and to his credit was able to assist me into the right position to take the shot.
As for carrying the meat up, I thought that they were joking until they butchered the carcass after taking the cape. They were to say the least...
One Black and One Blue Wildebeest but the black is older and of a better size. I love the Kudu and a reasonable size for the E.C. but as for the next trip... well I'll have to win lotto first.
Africa, the mere sound of the word congers up stories of Hemingway, Corbett, Taylor and after 50 plus years of waiting to go to Africa for a Safari, I finally made the decision to bite the bullet and contacted Chris Troskie of CT-Safaris where I advised Chris of my limitations and asked him was...
Thanks for the thoughts, if I get a Warthog I can bring it back to Australia as long as the Taxidermy is complete and with the correct paperwork so that is a big relief.
5 Days and Counting
5 Days and Counting.
A lot of forum members know that I am planning my first and probably the last Safari to Africa when I posted the details in ’50 Days and Counting’ well, we are now down to the final 5 days.
I have taken note of all the information and suggestions...
Thanks for the encouragement, I will ask Chris to point out "Your" animals but can you at least give me a first name (P.M. me if you want) as he sees a lot of people and may not remember "Your" animals without a name.
I am hearing a lot about the Nyala and my arm is going...
