    I spent my entire hunt without a PH in Namibia .
    The Ph was getting over some broken bones so he drove the truck only .
    Hunted with the tracker the whole time and loved it .
    Ive spent my whole life hunting by myself so it was no problem .
    I didn't really give it a second thought .
    The tracker grew up in the area in the bush so no problem .
    Ive hunted for a living and spend weeks alone in some pretty remote country .
    So if you have the confidance i cant see a problem .

    Brickburn brought the most light to this thread by posting the actual legal description of the requirements for much of SA.

    Yes I did once... the client and his new wife weren't getting much privacy in the tented camp... so I built a honey moon blind up in a huge tree overlooking a waterhole complete with creature comforts and left them there for the late afternoon hunt:giggle:... they had a ball.. the trophy arrived 9 months later... we're still friends since 1988! :E Blush:

    I left my clients to stalk on their own within visible and call distance in areas where there's no DG. It also depends on how proficient the client is and then only if we've singled out a single and particular trophy.

    If we hadn't gotten peace restored here, I'd remind everyone that Dodge trucks are the best

    This one just made my day!!! That is the quintessential African P.H. for you, done with grace and class. Only one problem - I have never seen trophies out of Zim in 9 months....Many other jokes come to mind but for another time... Thanks for the post.

    Says the cat with feathers sticking out of his mouth.:D


    I have had Lessor Bustard and it was great. I have heard that Kori Bustard tastes great as well but don't know that personally.



    The following is a Kori Bustard story from two of my fathers friends. The story is from the 1950's or 1960's:

    Two friends went elephant hunting on the Ruaha River. One went upstream and the other down stream. Hunter One came back to camp to see Hunter Two cooking a Kori Bustard over the fire. Hunter One says you can't shoot them, they are protected. Hunter Two said this one wasn't!:D
