I am very sad to see that Felix Marnewecke passed. I’m not sure what happened, anyone with any information please feel free to add information. I saw one post that alluded he may have been killed in the field but I DO NOT know this to be true and certainly don’t want to spread misinformation.
At any rate, my sincere condolences to his family and friends. Rest in peace sir.
 
I see Felix was nearly killed by a buffalo back in 2012. Wonder what happened to him.
 
I see some condoences up on Facebook but nothing indicating death from mishap. He was quite well known and respected in African hunting circles.

I had just seen a post saying he had “died doing what he loved”. I don’t know.

Thanks for posting this.
 
Condolences to his wife, family and friends. May he Rest In Peace.
 
Felix contracted Typhoid Fever down in the Bongo areas. He died while being transported to a hospital in Douala.
He survived an ambush by a cape buff only to die from a treatable, preventable, bacterial organism. This is even more heartbreaking.
 
+1 on Typhoid and tetanus.
 
Sad news, RIP

I would be interested in it if you pass. Please send me the info on the gun shop if you do not buy it. I have the needed ammo and brass.
Thanks,
