Danie hunts on several different farms of 1000+ha. The farm he chooses to hunt will simply depend on where he thinks your chances will be the best. His high success rates are possible because of this factor. I'll gladly PM you his contact info so you can get ahold of him if you desire.
Gladly Clarified Aaron,
I simply meant he has several different options as to where the hunts will be conducted. Some of them are managed and some are not. My point was having different options is a good thing....
Candor is best. A straight forward, all details covered and explained hunt offer will get you better responses. I have no problem with what you are offering, just give details. You don't want to "hide the ball" at all on here.
Please the attitude given to you by mr Neilson. You will note that all of his posts are in criticism of the hunt offered by someone else. He has designated himself as the expert on all things african and the moderator of all posts on this site. We are so glad he joined us in 2011 and that he can spare a moment from his similar self appointed position on other forums. He is not always this grumpy but I heard that he just returned from an east Australian wombat hunt that he now offers exclusively on his website. He is also an expert in wombats. Finally, and most importantly, he has killed 11 lions. Just ask him.
The managed hunts are more popular however as when folks go that far and spend that kind of money they want to bring home their game and I can't argue with that.
Welcome to Africa Hunting.
Do not lump everybody in that mentality. If it is your cup of tea, great, that is your business. As for myself I will quit hunting before shooting a lion in a 1000 hectacre pen.
As far as Aaron, he is a big boy and can defend his own actions, however based on your above quote I do not see you and him competing for the same clients.
