    The mood here in Pretoria is somber regarding the passing of FC, one of a close knit fraternity that has lost one of their own. I was privileged to be able to talk with fellow PHs here tonight and here stories of a good man and hunter. My condolences to his family and friends.

    This is real shocking to hear about.

    i had the pleasure of having FC as my PH in 2017. he was a fantastic guide and human being. we kept in contact over the past two years and felt like family. As a physician who cares for trauma patients I was worried about his injures but hopeful all the same. I am very saddened to hear of his passing. Prayers to his wife and family. I will miss him dearly

    Our hearts are shattered and broken today. Our dear friend Professional Hunter, FC Prinsloo has gone to heaven, succombing to multiple injuries from a cape buffalo attack. Please pray for his dear wife Estelle and the Bushmans Quiver Quality African Safaris family. We are all simply devistated, but we know that he is at peace in heaven now with Jesus and no longer in pain and suffering. Please consider donating to the Go Fund Me account as all donations will go directly to Estelle for medical, funeral arrangements, and living expenses through this very difficult time. Hug your loved ones extra close today in honor of FC. Rest In Peace precious friend, we love you so much FC.

    Hi everyone,
    I wanted to leave a voice note, but I will stumble over my words.
    For each of you who has made a contribution in whatever way from finance to prayer to uplifting words: Thank you so so much.
    I was convinced that FC would make a 100% recovery after the accident.
    There was so much prophecy that FC would be 100% right.
    Now I can say with great joy in my heart that it all happened exactly that way.
    Yes, FC's borrowed flesh is no longer here on earth and we will miss it terribly, but its spirit is now in a sanctified body, 100% strong, happy and without any pain.
    The traces he had trampled here on earth were deep. The positive impact he has made on so many people is enduring and will continue to affect many people.
    My heart overflows with gratitude to our Heavenly Father for the time he was here.
    We choose to celebrate his life.
    Thanks again to each of you, and thank you Abba Father for Your Love, Grace and Lordship.
    Let Your Will be done on earth as it is in heaven.
    Blessings

    Stephan Vd Merwe

    FC was a great PH as well as a great person. He will be missed dearly by Estelle and the entire hunting community. The GOFUND me to help Estelle with expenses was set up by Scott Whatley of The Sportsman of Colorado radio show. My wife and I had the pleasure of spending time with FC, and Estelle as well as the rest of the Bushmans Quiver family in 2016. Please continue to keep them all in your thoughts and prayers. God speed my friend.

    Very sad to see this. Heartbreaking on the one hand, but so grateful to hear he was a man of faith and his family can move forward with confidence in his eternal state.

    All very sobering personally as I was in Zim Buffalo hunting while this ordeal was playing out.

    None of us is guaranteed tomorrow on this earth. As was said earlier in this thread, love on those who matter to you as if you will not be able to tomorrow.

    May God bless the family and friends of FC as they deal with this great loss.
