Hi I'm new to this site! I'm a sixteen year old girl who went recently went on a hunting Safari with my dad for a week at Tootabi Hunting Safari I the Eastern Cape of South Africa. This was a whole new experience for me because this was the first time I left country and it was the first time I have ever hunted in my life. I would say it was the best week of my life. Tootabi is a very welcoming of me and my dad and made us feel like family. Before the trip, I was very nervous that I would be bored or not have lots of because typical hunters are not sixteen year old girls who dance and shop in their free time. However, at Tootabi, they managed to keep me entertained by taking me on amazing places to see all the exotic animals. For instance, my first night there, I saw giraffes, zebras, and many other animals native to South Africa. They took me to see all the amazing animals within hours of stepping off the plane. My favorite animal they took me to see were cheetahs. I enjoyed them the most because I actually got to pet one of the cheetahs. Another cool thing I got to experience was seeing wild elephants, lions, rhinos, hippos, hyenas, and many other animals with in feet of me when we went on a safari car ride through a park that housed all these animals. I can't forget the hunting. What would be a hunting trip without the hunting?! On the first full day I was there in South Africa, I went hunting with my dad, our ph, and tracker. It was the morning and we were only out for a short amount of time tracking the animal I was hunting for. We were searching for an impala. We found a beautiful bull and I got it down in 3 shots(okay well technically 4 shots) That was the first time I have everyone hunting in my life, and it was so much fun. The thing that stood out about the animal I shot is was it was actually much bigger then the average bull impala. I would have to thank my ph and tracker for finding such a magnificent animal. We actually got to eat some of the meat from it. It was one of the best things I have ever eat. All the food there we had was amazing and prepare by such a lovely lady. She always made sure I had food I liked and I was happy with it. She and everyone else at Tootabi really treated me like family. To add on to the hunting, I went on a few of my dad's hunting trips. Those were actually fun. I thought it would be boring just following them around and waiting for an animal to show up. However, it wasn't like that. It was really fun, and I got to really see the beautiful terrain. All in all, Tootabi is amazing place, and I can't wait to go back. The worst part about the trip was having to leave. I wish I could just stay there forever.

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.
