Just returned from a great hunt in Namibia. I booked the hunt, air travel, and rooms through our very own safari gal, Lori Spears. My friend and I have hunted Africa several times so our list of animals we wanted to take was quite small. That being said if my wife had not been with me my list would have grown considerably. I saw so many trophy animals of different species as to be unbelievable.

This is the first time I have taken a bow to Africa, but I知 sure it won't be the last. The ranch we stayed at and hunted on had nice lodging and good food. Animals we saw ranged from Damara dik dik to Livingstone eland. We saw cheetah tracks on several occasions but never actually saw a cat. Instead of a long write up I will let the pictures tell the story.

















And of course, what's a trip to Windhoek without bargaining with the Himba women.

Jaustin welcome back!
Happy to hear you had a great bowhunt in Namibia.
Very nice Kudu. The picture of the Go Away Bird brought back some memories LOL!
Which outfit did you hunt with?

Thanks Thomas, my wife and I really get a kick out of those go away birds. This place was unbelievable, I had up to nine kudu bulls at a time coming in. One day I had over 20 kudu bulls within 20 yards and at least six of them were definite shooters. I ended up seeing bulls that would out measure the one I took but he had the shape and mass I wanted in a kudu bull. I booked this hunt with International Outdoor Consultants which is owned by Troy Ginn and Lori Ginn/Spears (safari gal). She took care of everything from start to finish. The hunt was with Antonie Louw (sp?). If I didn't already have an eland I would have taken one here, man the were huge. I saw tons of water buck, gemsbok, wildebeest, hartebeest, giraffe, and some great impala. I forgot to include a photo of my best shot of the trip; two guineas one arrow.

Jaustin, glad to hear you had a good time and nice shot on those guineas! On my last day, I had a chance to take at least two "doubles" on guineas, but I passed out of fear of spooking something larger. Looking back, I wish I would've taken the opportunity. Congrats to you on the fine shot.

Thanks Thunder and ndbwhnter, I waited until the last day, actually the last evening for my guinea assault. My wife said no more trophy fees so I really didn't have to worry about spooking anything. They had been tempting me all week and I was almost as happy taking them as I was the kudu.

You are right Jerome, Namibia has been very good to me, both with a rifle and a bow. I think next time I won't pass this big fellow:

Mule deer and Colorado elk seasons almost done! Hunters driving farm roads, looking for racks, their PH driving them along, I ask that you not pull into my drive. The buck behind me, on the boundary line of the GMU somehow knows. The hunter laughs, I would invite you in to see my Searcy rifles but social distancing prevails, darkness arrives and the buck slides away into secret tree grove...

Many thanks for re formatting my article for the forum

I served my time in both the bush and during the bush war

I hope it did it justice

Education is where it is at - without it the wild places are history

You - sir - are well placed to make a difference
