I recently hunted for free range Damara Dik Dik, Hartmann's Mountain Zebra and Damara Springbok with Westfalen Safaris located near Outjo, Namibia. John is a consumate PH and we were able to shoot a 3 1/2 inch Dik Dik, great Mountain Zebra Stallion, and an old 15 inch Damara Springbok, along with three Gemsbok for meat, one of which was 41 inches. Juliana's food was gourmet in every respect, the accomodations were very nice and the company of the van der Westhuizen family was wonderful. We also visited the local Himba village and took a day and toured Etosha National Park. The Hartmann Mountain Zebra hunt ranks up in the top five hunts that I have had in over 13 safaris to Africa. It was tough! If you want to hunt free range and take great trophies then consider Westfalen Safaris.

Welcome aboard. Looks like an ancient cow gemsbok? - heck of a trophy - think I would have had to bring her home. Could not agree more about Hartman's. Hunted an old stallion in '08 outside Omaruru with Nick Nolte. It is a trophy which you will earn. And congrats on one hell of a dik dik.

G'day Bob,
Just had a yarn with A G, and he has filled me in on how much work he puts in to such developments, referencing QuikLoad, tightening tolerances, load development, range testing. He indicated that of you wish to contact him directly he can go into details far better than I.
If you wish , contact him directly, he has given the OK for me to pass that on.
Hunt: Alaska, Canada, Mexico and USA: particularly the Western states.
Hi,
Going through and old thread I see you mentioned having a William Douglas double in 470NE for sale. Just touching base to see if you sold the rifle, or if it was still for sale?
Regards,

Hi Chris
Yes, I still have it
Cheers
