Enjoy your trip! Keep notes of your questions now, you will find a lot of answers on this site.

Take what Africa has to offer! When the PH says that is a big animal, trust him.

My brother and I have hunted with Philip twice. On both occasions we kept an on-line daily journal of our hunt for friends and family to enjoy. You can still read about our journey by visiting www.broadtopbushmen.com. The password to enter the site is Magnum. It isn't a fancy site and doesn't contain advertising; its just two brothers who do their best to let their family and friends know we are safe and having a good time. The stories and pictures will give you some idea of what to expect and maybe even some ideas of what the area is like.

I've also posted a couple brief hunt reports here of our time with Philip and Thomas Highlands.

Feel free to PM me if you have any questions.

Be sure to allow time to see the country. Namibia is gorgeous. Save yourself some aggravation, and use their rifles.

There is no real aggravation taking your own rifles if you want. You just have to learn the do's and don'ts of the process.

There is something about taking your first animals in Africa with your own rifles and reloads that you just can't replace with the outfitters equipment.

However if I do go back I'll be using the outfitters equipment since I now have my first safari under my belt.

I believe you may have Sent me a PM but it won’t let me open it. It’s says I need a “conversation ID”

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.

G'Day,
Long time no talk. I had a bad accident and was discharged from the hospital last Thursday after a three month stay. Am home now and all is well. So glad to be back. Missed you all on this board. Hope all is well with you. Killed a nice Mule deer last October and used the stainless Buffalo Skinner that worked to perfection and love the wood.
Regards, Mike in California.
