Great first trip. I love that Kudu.
I'm booked with Kowas for 2020 and can't wait. It'll be my 3rd safari, but first time to Namibia. The Strauss family has been great to communicate and help plan the trip.
If you have time would really like to hear some more of the hunt details. Helps the rest of us bide the time until we are over there again.

Thankfully no rugby-tackling drills for me. My body and temperament are better suited to sitting by the fire, eating fresh game meat, drinking red wine and recounting wild adventures and tall tales in equal measure!!

We had this conversation at Kowas because I teach and coach in Texas. It was very interesting that when I returned home and we started football staff meetings and our Defensive Coordinator starting talking about developing the rugby tackle into our program. I had been taught by some very knowledgable people.

We did a bunch of the sitting by the fire, eating well, and telling stories too. (y)(y)(y)

If you only knew how MANY skilled and experienced hunters MISSED their first shot on jackal!!! It's very weird, but certainly true...

I have a like new VC .450 I might part with. I had it built in 2013 and it has served me well. Also have a VC fitted leather trunk case for it along with the plastic case it came with. I'll take 14000 for all of it.

Hi Jody,
I have been looking for ideas on the best way to display my European mounts from Africa. I came across some of your shield work and was wondering if you would be willing to make one for me? If so, please let me know the cost. I like the shield with the two spears that you built for a member years ago. Thanks.
