Headed to Namibia with @Jaques Spamer next month and as with all hunting trips the anticipation is mounting.

At first I thought Covid and the testing requirements were going to be the toughest hurdle associated with the trip. However as the weeks have passed since booking, the airlines have changed or canceled my fights 3 times. Of course Jennifer with @TRAVEL EXPRESS has worked it out each and every time. I’m certain if anything else changes she’ll handle it as well.

A few years back I shared a story here of a missed opportunity in Botswana. I really thought that after that encounter I would never get another opportunity like it again. Below are a couple of pics from my missed opportunity. They may give you and idea of what I’m after.

Then you are heading to the caprivi. What concession are you hunting. I got back from there in mid October. Hunt report is filed. Good luck. Anything else on the plate besides jumbo?

Have you got room in your luggage for another hunter. I'll pay the excess baggage.

Of course it’s a non exportable tag. Memories are what I’m after.
Exactly my opinion since I have no space for much of anything! Oh Am I envious! I can’t wait for your report and pics!
Have a grand time!

I don't know where you're located, but I'd be happy to let you try out my Krieghoff. I'm located in West Tennessee and the local gun club has a skeet layout and is located not far from my farm. We're about five miles from the Kentucky state line and about 100 miles west of Nashville.
I just joined today, I live in Louisiana. I joined mostly because of all of the 35 Whelen discussion as I am now very interested In the 35 Whelen. I have an 1885 Highwall that J.E.S.S. rebored to 35 Whelen

Also own 338s 375 and both a 416 rem and Rigby
