My trip to Namibia is finally here. Will be jumping on a plane at JFK, J-burg and over to Windhoek on October 6th. Hunting plains game for 10 days with Kowas safaris. This is my second time hunting with them and I can't wait based on the fantastic time I had with them on my previous hunt. Will send a report after I get back. Good hunting

Good luck. I have seen a couple of good reports about them recently. I'm sure that you will have a great time. Looking forward to a report and Pics. Bruce

I have the following plains game on my wish list: black wildebeest, blesbok, Impala, mtn zebra, warthog, springbok, red hartebeest, and gemsbok. The rifle thing is a long story but I decided to use one of theirs and leave mine at home. I am flying Jet Blue from Dulles to JFK. I found out after booking my flight that JB will only check my rifle to JFK so I have to basically go through the whole TSA thing again at JFK. I learned this out from a fellow AH member who said it was a PITA. We'll see how that goes. In hindsight I should have gone through a travel agent who specializes in dealing with hunters as I did on my last trip.

I totally agree with your thoughts on using a travel agent. I would not consider a flight to and from Africa without one. They know what's in the "small print" re. handling of firearms and steer their clients around the pitfalls.

Definitely a lesson learned. You are definitely correct on the small print.

Hello, saw that you want the Jeffries brass. So you an either send a USPS money order or paypal i guess, which ever works for you is fine with me at this point. If you want to us Paypal use [redacted] friends and family and dont mention gun stuff at all or they will go bananas! LOL!

Let me know what you want to do.
Thanks,
Rob

Hey Jim, I read that you’re from Dequincey and just returned from Africa. I’m from Lake Charles and went there in April. What outfitter did you use and would you share your experience and pics? I won our trip to Kuche through DU.

Hello! Nice rifle! I have IDENTICAL rifle in 375 H&H so i was wondering what gunsmith did the work on it? Appreciate it and if you decide there is anything you are willing to take in partial trade, let me know. I have quite a few pistols, long guns and sxs & o/u shotguns as well.

Let me know if you are looking for anything in particular.

Thanks,
Rob
