Hello everyone. I was very excited to start my research for my next hunt. I will be heading to South Africa in August and I am finding this website very helpful. Thank you.

Welcome Cowboy! Tell us a little about yourself...where you live, what you like to hunt, what are you planning to hunt in RSA, who are you going with, have you been to Africa before, etc.
There's a lot of info here to plow through. Good luck on your hunt!

I live in Hamilton, Montana. I have hunted Big Game in the Rocky Mountains my entire life. I typically hunt traditional archery style with a recurve. But I do carry a rifle now and then. I am planning on hunting a Kudu, Warthog, and a Wildebeest this August. I can't wait. I have a feeling that this may become trip I try to make every couple of years. Thanks for the welcome.

Ridgewalker, I see that you hunted Limpopo - South Africa. That is where I am heading with Matlabas Game Hunters.

You live in some fine country! I've bird hunted mostly while in Montana and mostly around Havre and south to Miles City.
I use to bow hunt, killed 7 deer (white tails and mulies) all with a recurve plus one 5x5 elk using a compound which I called in to 17 yards. Blew all 4 tendons out on my rotator 30 years ago mountain biking in Moab. Had to give up bow hunting. I might try it again just to see if I've got what it takes.

I hope Limpopo has received some good rains. They really needed it last June.

Greetings! Montana is my home away from home, on occasion. Mostly down around West Yellowstone, and the Madison Valley. One of my favorite places.

Looking forward to your hunt report from SA.

Hi Cowboy
Spent my first 21 years in Scobey MT and MSU.
Since then have been moving south. Now I am in Colorado and am mostly a bow hunter but I am still on training wheels:).
My first trip to SA was with a bow and I also had an Impala on my list.
The second time I went I did it with a 300wm so I could get out and see more of the country.
Take what you can with a STICK!!!! But either bring your rifle as needed.
With a bow I left my impala there but I did get it the second time.

This is the shot that left it in SA. A half inch higher and I would have spined it and it would have been mine.
Was so pumped that they were videoing my hunt. Found out above it was to prove I hit the animal or not. Got great videos of the other three trophies.

300 WM went about 30 yds.
Would be happy to answer any question PM me.

Tom

I have a like new VC .450 I might part with. I had it built in 2013 and it has served me well. Also have a VC fitted leather trunk case for it along with the plastic case it came with. I'll take 14000 for all of it.

Hi Jody,
I have been looking for ideas on the best way to display my European mounts from Africa. I came across some of your shield work and was wondering if you would be willing to make one for me? If so, please let me know the cost. I like the shield with the two spears that you built for a member years ago. Thanks.

I'm at <pappas@mtaonline.net> Send me an email with your phone and I will call you about a skull I have. I went to school in Boston and am from Bernardston in the west part of the state. Moved to Alaska in 1984 adn never looked back.
