    BOTSWANA: BOWHUNT: Has Anybody Bowhunted With NKWE SAFARIS?

    Didn’t bow hunt, but hunted with them a couple years ago. My Dad and 13 year old went, it was a great time. I wrote a report I’m sure you can dig up.

    Looking for a spot on a Texas lease for son

    I graduated from Mines as well (mechanical engineering) and now run an IT company in Lubbock. Always amazed at how small the world can be. I’m no real help for a lease, but if I hear of anyone leasing land, I’ll shoot you a message.

    Botswana Hunting Packages

    I hunted with Jaco in June of 2021 with my dad and 13 year old. It was a great hunt, had an amazing time! Great area, great camp,great animals. They worked really hard to make sure my Dad and Son got on stuff, even though we lost a day to Covid tests in JoBerg (I hate CVS). Add in a couple days...

    BOTSWANA: 3 Generation Hunt In Botswana With NKWE SAFARIS

    Day 3 - Eland! We awoke to another glorious morning, tea in the room to get us going and then a great breakfast. I love getting up, heading over and sitting next to the fire while they finished breakfast prep. It was just a wonderful way to start each day - and Noah (13 year old) has brought...

    BOTSWANA: 3 Generation Hunt In Botswana With NKWE SAFARIS

    Back at it! So our trip started on the 10th of June (we drove to DFW on the 10th, flew out on the 11th), but we didn't get to Botswana until the 15th with the delay. By the time we got to camp is was getting dark, so we settled in, had some food and some drinks and went off to bed early. Up...

    BOTSWANA: 3 Generation Hunt In Botswana With NKWE SAFARIS

    I got back a few days ago from 6 days of hunting and a couple days of fishing in Botswana with @NKWE SAFARIS. It. Was. Great! Quick back story on the trip. We told our kids when they turned 13, they could take a trip with one parent. The problem was we didn't really limit the 'where', so...

    Travel with minor and 1 parent Question

    It looks like I have to get a court order or travel with my 13 year old? Has anyone traveled to SA with their minor children and not the other parent? Seems crazy to have to get a court order?! The rest is no problem, but I’m not sure where to start for a...

    Best gear you’ve found

    So many people don’t put enough thought into socks! Smart wool socks are my goto for hiking and hunting! I like Osprey backpacks, but they aren’t really quiet for hunting (I have a badlands pack for hunting). I love them for travel or keeping at the blind or in the truck. Wear them hiking a...

    Anybody with bad knees?

    So my wife and I had knuckle pain, and my Dad joint pain. Osteo Bi-Flex really helped. My joints feel fine now and I haven’t taken it in several month. My mom had knee pain, used Voltaren creme from Mexico (just buy it in the pharmacy there, but it’s prescription in the US). She swears it...

    AH Get Together In Dallas During Dallas Safari Club (DSC) Convention 2021

    I drive over every year with my kids. We usually get a hotel about 5-10 min away and then Uber over each day. Cheaper hotel, no parking to mess with, makes it easy. Just buy tickets at the door, although I would say to keep watching the website this year in case they have to enforce 50 or 75%...

    I’ll offer a new service. Anyone that wants can be a 1099 contractor for my IT company to do WiFi inspections and testing at any hunting campsite. Since the list doesn’t apply to those traveling for business, it should work, right? [emoji38]

    COVID-19 "Free To Fly" procedures and tests for Americans

    Just a quick note, I needed a PCR test to get into Alaska a few weeks ago for a fishing trip. I was able to call a local clinic that was doing the 15 min Abbot Labs test. Drove up, they took sample, did test and gave me results in 30-45 min. About $200. The Nurse was even kind enough to to write...
