I would like to share with everyone here the amazing time we spent in Namibia with Philip and the entire crew of his hunting camp. I was first intrigued about hunting with Philip after all the positive hunts reports I read on this site and the great deal he advertised on here about the Namibia top 10 package. After a few phone calls with previous clients about there own personal experiences and some well answered emails from Philip the hunt was booked for myself, 2 good friends of mine and my wife as an observer! We were booked in from the 6th of july to the 19th.
We choose not to bring any of our own guns along and just to use Philip's. I was shooting a sauer 202 chambered in 300 wm topped off with schmidt bender glass. The rifle was a little worn but shot just fine and i really enjoyed the quality glass that topped the gun. For the first week I primarily hunted with Isaac and his driver Marios. For the second week of the hunt my ph would be a young fellow named Ralf. Hunting with Ralf was a true pleasure, he was completely dialed into his surroundings and very informative not just about hunting but about every thing Namibia had to see and offer.
The majority of our hunting took place on Philips farm Heusis. On the home farm I was lucky to take several really nice animals. We spent one day and an over night stay at Okambara elephant lodge were we hunted for black wildebeest and a beautiful impala my friend took. We also spent a day hunting on Philips friends farm where myself and friend killed beautiful free range waterbuck!

A few of the other highlights from Okambara. This porcupine showed up as we were eating supper and hung around for awhile. Philip actually had to chase him away as he was at the bottom of the stairs that led up to the room we were staying in.

A very big thank you goes out to Philip,Ralf and the entire Hennings family and staff for a very enjoyabl, memorable stay and hunt. Also to my American friends we met down there we really enjoyed your company and sharing the time together, hopefully someday we'll cross paths again in Africa. If anyone is hunting with Philip in the next little while be sure to ask him about the hunt Team Canada had there and maybe he'll show you a few pictures of his own!

Question: are those lion tracks?

Don’t see many here in Kentucky in the USA (though some big hosuse cats prowl my neighborhood).

Hi Luke. Just saw your message. I am in Dillingham, and have been since 2002. I took an elementary teaching gig here, taught here five years, and then got a job with Togiak National Wildlife Refuge as their education and outreach specialist. Recently I just got a promotion and now I'm the Visitor Services Manager. Prior to DLG I spent 6 years teaching for Lake and Pen in Nondalton.

Hi TT
I am glad you found some useful info in my posts. Hard cast WFN with GC will do the job fine. I trust Veral Smith (owner of LBT company) - I believe that he can provide you with some finest HC bullets. Many companies are coping his design. I can help you from here in developing max loads (40.000psi) just let me know which powder you are using (I use Quick Load software which turns to be very reliable).
