Amazing
Well done
 
Great trophies!
Looking fwd to the report!
 
WOW, congrats!
 
Bongo on day 2! Wow. Love the ivory tips on mature bongos. Bongo and sitatunga in 7 days...that's just fantastic. Congrats and I look forward to the rest of the story.
 
Nice you look like a very happy hunter. Very nice animals. Looking forward to hearing the details of the hunt.
 
That went well !!!
 
Who is the outfitter/PH? I would be thrilled with the bongo only much less the sitatunga a few days later.

About Lon's Elephant hunts w/Tokoloshe? I hear Lon is battling cancer? What is his long term prognosis? I am already booked to hunt Africa in 2024 2025. Might consider 2026 for another African hunt. I want to hunt a more wild open region devoid of civilization. Concern is the risk that I book f/2026 then find poor Lon has passed on? Does Lon have any assistance to carry on the business in his absence?

Is your 22HP still available? If so have the original case?

Hi Ian, I'm contemplating my first outing, leaving UK via Dubai to Africa, taking rifles as you did.

I presume it went okay for you, would you have done anything differently? Cheers, Richard East Sussex

Are you still looking for a 375 H&H?
