Good morning gents, just came back from a 16 day Leopard hunt with Jan Du Plessis of Sebra Hunting Safaris. Unfortunately I didn't connect with Mr Spots so am of course disappointed but know that Jan done everything he could to make it happen including pre-baiting and constantly topping up and checking 12 bait sights. We suspect that the Gemsbok dropping there calves earlier than anticipated had a lot to do with it as we saw plenty of tracks of 3 separate Toms.

Lots of elephant in the area caused a few heart stopping moments when we bumped into some ele cows and we was very close to giving one the good news in self defence. I took gemsbok for baits and 2 jackal, a nice klippie and a Huge Damaras Dik Dik.

Environ,
Bad luck on the cat. Jan is a very well respected outfitter when it comes to hunting Leopard in Namibia and I have only heard excellent feedback from hunters who has hunted with him.
Please post a photo of the Dik dik for all to see.

Congrats and hopefully you will get another chance at that cat.

Take Care,

As others have said, sorry about the cat and great on the dik dik!

Dik Dik is very high on my list, but likely at least another Safari away.

Took me two hunts to get the leopard. Great PH and lots of hard work both times. These are smart animals and both skill and luck are involved in bringing one home. You have an excellent reason to go back!

Incredible DikDik trophy.

Next time for the Leopard. At least you had lots of proof they were there.
Timing is everything.

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.
