    Taxidermist outrage?

    Special Zimbabwe Hunt with Steyn Caracal Safaris

    I originally booked my hunt with Steyn Caracal Safaris. It was switched to "Steyn Safaris" prior to firming up the dates. I was told Steyn Caracal didn't exist anymore. Ben

    SOUTH AFRICA: BOWHUNT: South Africa Disappointment With Steyn Safaris

    I'm not bashing Steyn. I've never even met the guy. He never even visited our camp. I didn't hear on the internet about the litigation. . . I spoke to my PH on the phone. Recall, my PH was a nice guy, and agreed with me that this hunt was a mess. I don't believe "it was me," as Mike...

    SOUTH AFRICA: BOWHUNT: South Africa Disappointment With Steyn Safaris

    @ Mike M Part of the problem was A) Abie never once spoke to or visited us, and B) Although we were told we would be staying at his new 5 star lodge, we were taken 4 hours away to a two star place. I'm almost a year out, and my feelings have not changed. No one has any idea where our...

    The Frankfurt Stopover and Bows

    Friends Our stopover in Frankfurt is almost 11 hours. I got a room at the Hilton connected to the Airport. What about our bags? Since the stopover is 11 hours, we can't check the bags through to Jo Burg. Will we have any problems with the bows and broadheads going through customs/security...

    Bowhunt in SA in August. . . A Few Questions/Concerns

    Thank you all for the tips. I am going with Abie Steyn. Their main camp is very near Krueger, and I like the idea of doing that before the hunt begins. Thanks for that tip. I'm not going to bring a gun. I'm not averse to it like shooting from a car, but just don't enjoy it as much...

    Bowhunt in SA in August. . . A Few Questions/Concerns

    So my trip I never thought I'd get is finally coming together. It all started after getting drunk at the NWTF banquet. My wife let me have the final say at the auction, and 10 days with Steyn safaris was mine. They have been more than accommodating in helping me schedule the trip around the...
