    Congrat's Herve on the first of probably "more" safaris. Getting one's self hooked is bad enough, now you have your son and girlfriend hooked also! Truely not a bad problem to have. Great pictures by the way!

    Thank you all for your warm messages. I really appreciate that you post a comment.

    In fact, I imagined the post cards so that, without a word, a hunter like you guys could figure out from the set of images what happened during the hunting action, from beginning to end. Well, I guess it worked!

    I spend more time getting shadows out of the picture. Very creative to get them in the picture.
    AWESOME!

    Day 3 - 6th animal of our safari, the second for Marie
    [​IMG]

    This was not really a trophy animal given the broken tuss. Marie was very disapointed. The PH, very Professional, acknowledged that he made a mistake in judging the trophy and took this one for him (he was also the owner of the ranch were Marie shot the warthog).
    I will translate her reaction and the discussion that we had tomorrow. It is so funny to listen to it on on the video!

    I did some minor translation for myself and it is pretty funny.
    The look on her face when she is assessing the boar says it all.

    Hi There - We were 3 hunters, myself (herve, 47), Marie (my girlfriend, 47), and Pierre-Antoine my son, 14 years old. I would like to congratuate you three, glad everybody got some nice animals, and that you lot are enjoying my beloved country. Now look I know everybody at the moment is well done, I also say well done, but I want to thank you and your family for teaching me more of my country , the places and things i never knew of, I can relate to now.

    If you ever make a DVD of your hunting holiday, I would be honourd to buy the second copy, from you to watch it whenever I miss the bush, keep the stories and fotos coming,

    Enjoy LIFE AND SHOOT STRAIGHT AND ALWAYS TEACH PIERRE the rights and wrongs of the bush

    GOOD LUCK
    BAAS303
