    Update this morning on the Limpopo Outfitters Whatsapp Group.

    Results of DNA on the possible human remains found in the stomach of the Crocodiles exterminated in the immediate area where the situation occurred has been confirmed by HPG.

    At least the family now has closure and our thoughts and prayers for the family in this difficult time.


    Regards,
    Adriaan

    To the van Zyle family know this, your loved one had many people thinking and praying for him throughout this whole ordeal. You were never alone. At some point in time, when this sadness passes know that Scott touched many lives...even those he never met (like myself).
    As a Catholic I will continue to include the family and Scott in my prayers and offer candles in my church for your beloved Scott.

    Thinking of you all from Philadelphia, USA

    So sorry to hear this. Praying for the Lord's comfort, love, and healing for the family and friends. You have people all over the world lifting you up in prayer, and with time the Lord will bring you through

    This is truly sad news for everyone but at least we have closure. Scott's family and friends are close and strong and will pull through this difficult time together.

    Very sad to hear. His family will be in our thoughts.

    Lets celebrate the life he lived rather than focusing on the various social media distractions.

    amen to that. Scott loved the life he lived. His job was his passion. You can't get a better job than that

    Even though we can't choose our, time and method, of passing from this life, it's always difficult to see a hard working family man have to leave in this fashion.
    My sympathy to Scott's family in this very difficult time. Godspeed!

    I only met Scott once at SCI, but he struck me as a very capable, energetic and sincere individual. At this point let's remember the good things about him and try to help the family as we may. May the good lord bless them in their time of grief....... Bruce

    May our thoughts and prayers be with Scott's family. I believe that Scott died doing what he loved and joins a fraternity of PHs that have gone before him. Although I had never met Scott I truly believe that we will meet one day on that vast open savanna where the game is plentiful. Scott's memory will live on in all of us and I do hope that we all take the time to remember him each time we are lucky enough to harvest one of God's great creatures.

    The funny thing about life is that all men must die....but not all men will truly live!

    I know that you truly lived. I will miss you buddy; until we hunt together again....

    We should all be so lucky to have such a fulfilling career and life. He got to do what he loved until the end

    @Salome de Villiers,

    Thank you for the updates you provided during these last couple of weeks. It would seem you knew Scot personally and I'm sure that it was difficult to take the time to come onto AH to give those updates. Having been attending DSC and SCI both for a number of years now it is surprising that I had not met Scot one way or another. Regardless it feels as if we have lost a brother. As a father and husband too, my heart is torn for Scot's wife and boys.

    If I may be so bold, please pass along the condolences of the AfricaHunting community to Scot's family and friends.
