Ladies and Gents,

WE, my wife (best friend and hunting partner) and I, are booked for our next trip (4th) to the Dark Continent with Greatland Safaris, PH John Henry Keyser, August 18 - September 4, 2016. On the book for this Safari is Cape Buffalo, Sable, and Leopard (depending on tag). My wife's wish list includes: Giraffe, Zebra, and Warthog. If no leopard tag we will consider a lion hunt in the kalahari along with plains game - problem is we are running out of wall space. If we can't secure a tag this time looks like we will calling Jaco to book a leopard hunt. We were really impressed with Jaco and his outfit.

A year away, but my dreaming has never stopped since our first trip to Africa.

Dreaming of our Return to the Dark Continent,

Wow, sound like a great plan. Running out of wall space is a familiar dilemma for me.

Haha;) Guess it's time to build a smaller house and a larger trophy room. I have learned to pick 2/3 primary species and see what else crosses our path and just enjoy the journey.

Pretty much what I'm going now, I want a garage, man cave and small living space.

Wishing you only the best for your upcoming hunt DT!

If the Leopard tag does not work out for 2016, you certainly can't go wrong with @Jaco Strauss for a Leopard hunt. He is a straight shooter, and you know exactly what you get. One of the most reputable guys I know.

Take Care,
Marius Goosen

At least your wife is into hunting. Then again I get a real hunting holiday while she looks after the dogs.

My wife becoming my hunting partner has become expensive: she has her own list too now: Giraffe, Zebra, and Warthog;)

Small world and what timing. I just got back from Africa where I was hunting in Thabazimbi with John Henry Keyser at Greatland and I was there from the 11th through the 18th. I wanted a leopard but I heard there were no tags available. I got a Cape Buffalo, Blue Wildebeest, two Bushbuck, a Kudu, a Zebra, a Giraffe, an Impala, a Nyala and an Eland, all with a bow.

I had the time of my life and it was actually the first time I had ever gone hunting. And like you, I am also dreaming of my return to the Dark Continent in July of 2017.

I have a like new VC .450 I might part with. I had it built in 2013 and it has served me well. Also have a VC fitted leather trunk case for it along with the plastic case it came with. I'll take 14000 for all of it.

Hi Jody,
I have been looking for ideas on the best way to display my European mounts from Africa. I came across some of your shield work and was wondering if you would be willing to make one for me? If so, please let me know the cost. I like the shield with the two spears that you built for a member years ago. Thanks.
