Hunting with Jaco Wentzel at Kirabo Safaris. Met him multiple times and has been very helpful in set up since I had to push back a few times with dates. One of his repeat clients has been helpful in info about travel and customs and my taxidermist here in NH was great so I feel somewhat prepared. I am used to roughing it hunting and have spent 25 years playing rugby so if the hunting was bad at least I can catch some rugby down there. I am pretty sure the bowhunting will outrival Iowa, Kansas, PA,, Texas and Sask Canada. My wife is worried about Ebola. What are the chances that an Ebola outbreak hits when I can go to Africa?
