There were so many great pictures to choose from which made judging this contest more challenging then ever before! The nine finalists pictures were selected by three judges, myself, AH Sponsor and donor of this hunt Arc Africa Hunting Safaris and AH member Velo Dog whom I would like to thank for taking on this challenge. There are three photos from each judge represented, which are posted below in no particular order. Registered members of AH who have been members prior to March 10, 2015 may now place ONE vote for their favorite picture from amongst the finalists (judges and finalists cannot vote). To place your vote, reply in this thread by including in your post the number of the picture you are voting for. Voting will take place from March 16th until March 23, 2015 (ending at noon Pacific Standard Time). I am extending the voting by one day as I am posting the finalists a day late. The finalist with the most votes when the contest closes will be the winner. In the case of a tie the winner will be selected by the panel of three judges from the pictures that have tied. The winner will be announced on March 24, 2015 in this thread. Thank you again to everyone for all of the amazing entries and good luck to the finalists!

My vote for picture number seven. Captures the essence of Africa. Gave strong consideration to number five and also number two. Nice ensemble for the finalists. Nice job to all.

I'd say 5 but if you can shoot elephant you don't need a free hunt! So for that reason, number 1 for me :)

Picture number two. If the antelope was a little more off centre the picture would make a perfect Bateman print. Superb photo.

Picture #Two ....great depth and focus. Was torn between an African and non-African photo but for photo excellence Photo Two takes it for me!

I bought some bullets from Rimshot and he is good to trade with!
Greetings all! I've been a hunter for 50 years, but only now planning a trip to Africa. I was fortunate and successfully bid on a couple hunts for plains game in SA later this year and next. Also a rare Native Texas (5th generation) and USMC Vet. Hunt safe y'all!

I am looking for a Safari Express. Was yours made in New Haven or South Carolina? Any other details you can give me? I am very motivated to buy.
