wswat - If he looks to have mass and age (thick chest, dark black, sagging belly, etc...) and most importantly, you have enjoyed the stalk and you think he is beautiful...put him on the wall and don't worry about the inches.

Sorry Eric..not the intent for sure...lol I've always said "I'd rather be lucky , than good". That was definately the case with my Sable. I'd love to be there when you and Mr Sable have that meeting! Drinks would be on me!

These are all nice trophies above......Sable are one of the most majestic of the Antelope anywhere...

Here is one I shot in June of this year in Limpopo Province.. Horns measured 44"

One frontal shot at 224 Yds. Using my Griffin and Howe 30.06.

There is no Ground Shrinkage on these guys. (Bigger than they Look when u get close)

G'day, Von Gruff; Could you give me an idea on your Bearded Chef Knife, as per your posted photos, delivered to Australia? I'd like to reward a good mate (excellent amateur chef) who has done me big favours in the past. Cheers, Geoff Rath

I just received a forwarded e-mail from you, concerning our Web Site. We just finished a leopard hunt yesterday. While on the hunt my wife mentioned to me that she had finally had it with the person that was maintaining the site and that she was going to get someone else to maintain the site.

If the site is not active you can contact me thru the AH forum.

Cheers, Lon Denney
