since Corona in Zimbabwe is a standstill everywhere.My(black) PH told me for a few month,that he is thinking about to sell his gun (!!!) when I asked him how he was doing.
I felt that this Shona was far too proud to ask me for money in times of need.
So I have been paying him a small pension of $50 a month since April and told him that I will do this until December and then we will see.

Guys, I'm not saying this to make a big deal, I just want to give some of you a suggestion on how you can directly support people who are worth something to you.
And in Africa pretty much everybody is in a bad way, especially the black teams in the hunting camps.
I thought to myself, before I donate to a big organization where a third of the administration disappears, I'd rather do it myself.

I transfer money to this country via WESTERN UNION without any problems and 50.- USD costs me only USD 4,50 (my bank wants for the transfer 29.- Euro!!)
The money arrives there, is paid out in cash and the important thing is that he gets it in US Dollars, which is the gold standard in these times and helps people who are up to their neck in water.

As said, it should only be a suggestion for some, if you can afford it and there are already 20.- USD much money today.
African hunter solidarity should not only be a word.

My best always

This is a truly noble thing for you to suggest , Foxi . 50 American Dollars is equivalent to 4000 Bangladesh Taka , per month . I can easily provide this amount .

Any thing to aid the international hunting community .

That is a great gesture. My RSA PH/outfitter is also a farmer and I asked him about his trackers. He told me they are doing other work on the farm and still everyone is getting full salary. The boers are some special people.

Hogpatrol,
my boer PH in Gobabis is cutting grass now in the Kalahari and delivers that to other farms.
Times can change in a spilt of a second.
Carpe diem.

Hi Bob, how's things going in Wyong?. Down your way a couple of years back but haven't been in NSW since Ebor for the fishing. just getting over some nasty storms up here in Qld, seeing the sun for the first time in a few days. I'm going to NZ in the spring and hope to clean up a few buns while there and perhaps shake the spiders out of my old .303LE (currently owned by my BIL). Cheers Brian

Did you purchase your hunt at a US SCI fundraiser?

Heard you may have load data for the 500 Jeffery,.....any info would be appreciated. Was thinking 535gr, but already had a response that the 570gr would be a better way to go, not sure why.
