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 bought some bullets from Rimshot and he is good to trade with!
Greetings all! I've been a hunter for 50 years, but only now planning a trip to Africa. I was fortunate and successfully bid on a couple hunts for plains game in SA later this year and next. Also a rare Native Texas (5th generation) and USMC Vet. Hunt safe y'all!

I am looking for a Safari Express. Was yours made in New Haven or South Carolina? Any other details you can give me? I am very motivated to buy.
