    Very nice trophies indeed! Am memories to last a lifetime, or at least until the next safari.

    Madcox, I found your post. What a great hunt. That Kudu is a beast, but all your animals are great. Thanks for the good words on Kuche, we are headed out in 9 days. Any last minute advise, things to avoid, things you must do, titems you must take? Thanks again! Jeff

    Nothing out of the ordinary, really. Good binoculars certainly help picking animals out of the thick bush.
    Hard to hunt and take pictures, but I wish I had taken a better camera. Saw lots of wildlife I wasn’t hunting that I would have liked to have had better pictures of.
    If Never is still the cook, eat well and often. Every meal we had was incredible. I eat a lot of game meat in Oklahoma. Some I really like, some is ok, and some I just eat because I won’t waste something I’ve hunted. EVERYTHING Never made us was excellent.
    All the PHs I was around were great. Myself or my family were with Cobus, Dale, Justin, and Jorse. They were fun and knowledgeable hunters. Mandla was my tracker and he was incredibly skilled.
    Just let them know what you want trophy wise, and how you like to hunt- spot and stalk, blind, tracking. My experience was the whole crew bust their butt to make you happy.
    We were the first clients in their new camp and it was very comfortable and well ran. Koos said they have made lots of improvements just since we were there in August. You should have a great trip. Enjoy and post a report for those of us waiting on our next trip.
