2021 21 day July Family safari with Jamy Traut safaris PH Louw Lotter. Hippo and PG. this was delayed from 2020.

Fall 2021: idaho Elk, Montana elk/antelope/deer.
Cancelled 2020 events that may happen include the UK and Japan. If we go to Puerto Rico again for the Xmas holidays I want to hunt iguana.

2022?? The Mrs. lives to travel. She is coming around to the idea of dual purpose trips with some hunting. I’m hoping to hunt in the UK somewhere, as I’m sure we will be there. Assuming she enjoys the 2021 Safari, my chances of some type of repeat are good.
It is fun to reflect on what I thought would happen and what actually did.
2021: we completed the postponed family safari, although it was 28 total days. My vegetarian daughter became a hunter!
Fall 2021: yes on elk, deer and antelope. Fishing in the Bahamas.
2022: deer and antelope completed. No luck on elk this year. But, big success on getting a bunch of teen boys (and my beekeeper buddy!) out for their first animals (and Felipe and deer) in Montana.
Next: deer hunting in England over Xmas break, December 15th I fly over to visit my daughter and hunt with her.
2023: June: hippo for above mentioned daughter.
2024: my son will have graduated, that spring, so who knows what kind of flexibility my spouse will allow.

PS: my good friend once remarked that when he went on a hunting trip, he would return to his house and find his wife had bought a new piece of furniture (to balance out the discretionary spending for each spouse.) I find that accurate, so I work and save accordingly.

I hope to draw a Mt. Goat tag in Alaska for 2023, if I do, that will be my 2023 trip. If I don’t draw I’ll be watching out for a late season deal in Africa.
2024- I’m looking to try and get a buffalo hunt scheduled in SA. I’ve been in contact with a couple of outfitters from the forum here. I plan on being at SCI in February and looking there as well and hope to have something booked by March of 2023.
2025 or 2026 I plan to be back in the Caprivi with the folks I hunted with this year for buff and hippo and maybe even a non-trophy elephant.
Also, if I’m lucky with the western state draws then I’ll be adding trips for whatever I get drawn for.
It’s always fun and exciting trying to get a plan put together for an adventure.

I seen a post saying that you do taxidermy in WV. Where are you located in WV and do you have a price list?
I'm going on my first safari in June.

Hey There,

Im looking to book my first African Safari for 2024 for my 40th birthday. I've never hunted Africa before, but was going to head to SA with my wife for a week then see her off and then stay and hunt.

Saw your safari come up as a recommendation and wondering if you had any time to chat.
Thanks!
Steve
