I personally met Ivan leaving the Maun, Botswana on the 24th of this month. I think he said it was his last elephant hunt there. A nicer gentleman I have not met. He was down to earth and friendly and took the time to talk to me. I was also leaving Botswana from my first Africa plains game hunt. He said with Botswana closing and other areas it was especially important that all hunters practice fair chase and prioritize ethics. Much of the public has the wrong impression on hunting and it is up to us. I consider meeting him in Maun and talking again a little bit in the airport in Joberg the icing on the cake to an already fantastic time I had in Africa. This is the kind of man we need carrying the torch for hunting.

Highly experienced PH and conservationist. He is an elephant expert. Only issue I have is he is sometimes a bit too relaxed when close in...someday standing a couple yards away with a double still in the african carry may go wrong.....by all means get in close and then 10 yards closer but be ready....complacency and over confidence can get you in trouble...

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?
