Hey everyone. I've been a lurker on here for a long time and wanted to say hello! Leaving for SA in less than three weeks. (16 days)

Hunting with Limcroma. Wife and I are very excited and nervous at the same time (like I said, first trip!)

We will be there from July 24th - August 3rd. Figured I would see if anyone on here would be at Limcroma during the same dates.


Hi

I feel your excitement and wish you a great first safari!
I didn't hear you mention anything about taking care of getting your trophies home to the US. This is probably the single most forgotten piece of the puzzle BEFORE you leave. We would be happy to speak with you about the details of managing your trophies so that you don't have to stress about who is handling your export matters to make sure your trophies are safe and returned in the most efficient and most economical manner.

Wishing you all the best!

Rober

Did a family safari at Limcroma few years ago. They are a first-class operation in every way. You will have a great time. I wish we were going there during your time frame. You picked excellent dates.

Once you get there and see the incredible variety of game you will be blown away. Good luck with that budget:ROFLMAO: And, don't think your wife will help in that department, she will be as mesmerized as you! Oh, and I should warn you, there are some fantastic jewellery artisans in that country. So, there may be more hunting than you planned on

Hi Luke. Just saw your message. I am in Dillingham, and have been since 2002. I took an elementary teaching gig here, taught here five years, and then got a job with Togiak National Wildlife Refuge as their education and outreach specialist. Recently I just got a promotion and now I'm the Visitor Services Manager. Prior to DLG I spent 6 years teaching for Lake and Pen in Nondalton.

Hi TT
I am glad you found some useful info in my posts. Hard cast WFN with GC will do the job fine. I trust Veral Smith (owner of LBT company) - I believe that he can provide you with some finest HC bullets. Many companies are coping his design. I can help you from here in developing max loads (40.000psi) just let me know which powder you are using (I use Quick Load software which turns to be very reliable).
