Strange that Atlanta is concerned about the boots, but I've never had Dulles care.
Looks like they had a fine trip to me.
"Once in a Lifetime"??? ya right.. Biggest lie I ever told my ex-wife in 1985... that this was my one chance to go.
So plan on going again, and...
I suggest you pull the rifle very tightly to your shoulder using your outreached hand, to get
the crosshairs where you want them to "stay still".
I've been with Roy at Otjandaue and also to Erindi, and you are certainly on the right track.
I too have had several 270's over the years, and still use one quite often.
With the new 130 Gr Barnes TTSX, it has serious killing potential, as...
I've been here 11 times, and plan on going back again and again.
Love it there.
I've hunted here a couple times, and DeKlerk runs a fine operation and I'd gladly go back there again.
The '06 works just fine, just don't ask it to do what it was not designed to so.
Sorry to disappoint most of you, but I have been thru Joberg at least 25 times, and have had little or no poor experiences.
or it could be...
Yes, both here in the States upon leaving, and in Port Elizabeth.
That 185 gr ammo is great on plains game.
Noticed your post on AF Hunting, and maybe I can help you. If you will send me your e-mail address to TBlauwkamp@superior-sales.com
Can you wire transfer money to your PH?
I'm in Michigan too, my e-mail is TBlauwkamp@ Superior-sales.com if I can help more.
These Kowas folks are "for real", I've been there many times.
I vote Picture # 1
But........ I don't think they will take your firearms..
It sounds like it is quite do-able, but when finished, you will most likely say it is the most difficult hunt in SA.
Just got back, and used their service.
Could not have gone better.
I saw your post on AH about going the first time. I've been there 24 times for up to 6 weeks at at time over tha past many years. If you...
On my first trip to Zim in '86, Ranch owner (PH) had me shoot a Water Buck.. he said it was a "nice" one, and I did know any better until it was...
It is about a 50-50 chance of complete penetration, but, it sure as heck will kill the Eland if the bullet is placed correctly.
I just returned from 10 days with Kowas. We hunted and then went to the Caprivi fishing, and had just a wonderful time. They really know how to...
"Use enough gun"...I agree that Kudu are not as tough as Elk, but they will still take a beating if the shot is not perfect.
I far prefer a...
I had an outfitter that said all Jackal I "kill" are free... but if I shoot and miss him... I owe him $50 as all I did was educate the Jackal and...
I go to SA and Nambia each year, for different reasons. But I am spending more time in Nambia each year.....if that tells you anything.
If you will e-mail me at TBlauwkamp@superior-sales.com I will reply with some articles I have written about going the first time.
Accu-bonds are a tougher bullet, but in the 30-06 they should do just fine.
A Fusion Bullet is not nearly as tough as folks think it is. I found it ok for Impala, Blesbok etc, but lacking in penetration on Wildebeest.
Kowas Safaris ( one of our AH members) does a great job. up Africa Hunting Safaris | African Trophy Hunting | Hunt Namibia
I've been several times and they are great. Going back again in May this year.
I have hunted with them several times, and they are great.
Try Wal Mart for a "Cash Box'.. it is light metal, with a lock. It has worked for me for years.
They sure have a mighty nice looking web site.
I agree, and TTSX are my favorites.
I've been with these folks 3 times, and going back in May this year, They are great.
For Plains Game, 99% of our Deer Rifles will work just fine. I'm not thrilled with the 243 or 25-06, but a 270 Win on up will do fine.
Yes I have been there several times. Info... bring a Bi-pod for your rifle as shots can be long.
If you go after May 10th, be prepared for cold...
Told my wife the same thing... that a was back in 1985... been there 22 more times since.... and going again this year.
Life is great.
Hi, I noticed that you visited my "page" and thankyou for it. If there is something you were looking for, or I can help you with, feel...
Kowas is where I would go.
I have been to Kowas the past three years, and going again in May of this year. They run a great opeation.
I am sold on using a Booking agent for tickets, and a pre-arranging SAPS firearms permits with someone like Air-2000.
Even though I go thru...
What does a Safari Cost?
Now that I have your attention, there is a lot more to going on any Safari or hunting trip them meets the eye...
Just what we need, another regulation to again screw up hunting.
We are going 3 weeks to RSA and 3 weeks to Nambia.
Six different outfitters, so will be quite a variety of hunts.
Taking 30-06 with...
As Good As It Gets In Africa
Each year we have been privileged to go back to Africa, which is 16 out of the past 19 years, anyway. Each time is...

Each morning we would get up and look outside, and exclaim, “Another day in Paradise”. It just does not get...
