What is meant by private charter flights?.....bit strange not saying commercial flights
There is suppose to be further guidelines with regard to charter flights as well as Covid rules regarding entry...

From what i have heard its their start up phase to kick start the tourism sector therefore only charter flights into kasane and maun.

Will update if there is any further news.

Botswana Elephant seen Sunday...
Which block? Nice looking tusker....

Thick enough bases, long curving tusks, symmetrical .....although I do not like judging elephant from the rear this is a dream bull....

Not as thick as typical Botswana bulls but has length, no worn down/broken tips, no tattered ears, no shaggy skin, no real sunken temples, no visible askaris,.....from the rear appears to be 84lbs plus....I would say 74-76 lbs unless I can see him from the side or front...great bull never the less...

So good that Botswana has opened up again, will be the main go to place for large elephant again....

So, who's taking a risk on purchasing your commercial airfare now to Botswana for 2021? I'm still in the 'hold pattern' for ours.

Mule deer and Colorado elk seasons almost done! Hunters driving farm roads, looking for racks, their PH driving them along, I ask that you not pull into my drive. The buck behind me, on the boundary line of the GMU somehow knows. The hunter laughs, I would invite you in to see my Searcy rifles but social distancing prevails, darkness arrives and the buck slides away into secret tree grove...

Ellwood Epps has 1 box of 25-20 in stock. Look them up on the web. They are located in Orilla Ontario.

Many thanks for re formatting my article for the forum

I served my time in both the bush and during the bush war

I hope it did it justice

Education is where it is at - without it the wild places are history

You - sir - are well placed to make a difference
