Rod,
I had the pleasure of hunting with Jacques Strauss of Kowas Hunting Safaris in 2016.
He was the junior of two Professional Hunters on my safari and was there to assist on what became a successful hunt for a big tom leopard that had managed to survive two previous safaris that had sought this cat. Don’t let his youth fool you . . . Jacques is an absolute leopard MASTER. Beside a few warthogs for bait, I did not pursue any other species with Jacques, so I can’t speak with first hand experience to his expertise on those. BUT, since he grew up in the Camelthorn bush of the central part of the country, I’d fully expect him to be VERY GOOD at his craft on all the classic Namibian species, gemsbok, kudu, springbok, eland, zebra, etc., etc. as well as the big stuff. I’m guessing he probably shot his first kudu at about the age most of us were learning to ride a bicycle. He also happens to be great company, so one word of caution . . . if you hunt with him, you WILL want to do it again. And needless to say, staff, vehicles, equipment . . all excellent. I can recommend him without hesitation. I’d be happy to discuss more . . . pm me and we can talk by phone.

Here's a photo of Jacques holding the cat.View attachment 340200

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.
