Tinie,

I really look forward to meeting you as well and sharing a beer together. I indeed wanted a traditional Africa experience and wanted to learn about you Rhodesians on my first hunt to Africa.

I realize we may not fill our bags but I know you and your uncle hunt hard, ethically, and everyone always has a good time.

To the other readers, I was somewhat coy regarding all the details out of respect for the PHs that facilitate auction recommendations and I was hesitant to post my rates paid in too nuanced a fashion because the rates the PHs charge each individual is their business to publicize and not really mine.

So far everyone has been very above board and helpful from the start trying to find me the type of hunt I was searching for. I'd add that the PH offered me more "South African Style" amenities on ranches with no prepaid bags and lower daily rates in several areas. I opted to take less certainty and pay higher prices for an experience with them that was less scripted in a wilderness area for my hunt. That was my choice but the PHs were willing to provide a hunt that suited me best and spent a fair amount of time assessing my desires for an African experience that I'd truly enjoy.

Bottom line, I'm paying 2x the price for less certainty of an epic harvest in order to insure I will have an epic experience. I thought hard about that decision and it sits well with me.

Hi Bob, how's things going in Wyong?. Down your way a couple of years back but haven't been in NSW since Ebor for the fishing. just getting over some nasty storms up here in Qld, seeing the sun for the first time in a few days. I'm going to NZ in the spring and hope to clean up a few buns while there and perhaps shake the spiders out of my old .303LE (currently owned by my BIL). Cheers Brian

Did you purchase your hunt at a US SCI fundraiser?

Heard you may have load data for the 500 Jeffery,.....any info would be appreciated. Was thinking 535gr, but already had a response that the 570gr would be a better way to go, not sure why.
