    Philip,

    The pleasure was all mine. I will return one day. You have a first class operation and any hunter should give your outfit a hard look before making a decision on where to hunt. I can assure them they will not be disappointed.

    Best wishes to all the crew.

    Chris

    Thanks, the memories will last a lifetime. I hope to add more African ones to them. Glad to see the Whelen has a following down under. It truly is a great cartridge, kills like the hammer of Thor.

    I will give the project thread a read.

    We to didn't care about the tape measure until the last day of the hunt. He'll we didn't care as long as it was a good representative of the animal. Once mounted on the wall it's the memories that are important. After all it your trophy you worked for it and it makes you happy, that's what matters.
    Cheers mate Bob

    My wife and I also had a great hunt with Phillip in September 2019...We did a conservation hunt with Adab and Eric as guides ..My God they have good eyes and fun to be with...Everyone was great and you can't beat the food...Besides the normal plains game we each took a giraffe...Boy are they big...We shot Swift A-Frames in/06 and .300 Win..Velo dog helped us also...

    HeyAck,

    How was the giraffe to hunt?

    I’ve always thought they would be an amazing animal to go after.

    Never really though about hunting them before but they needed to remove 100 or so from the area (these were wild,not fenced)where they had water but depleting the available forage..When I saw them it became quite exciting and challenging to knock over a 2 story building..These things are huge when in the bush ! Roughly 18' tall and about 2500#s ..Lot of meat for the locals...Said there were app. 300 in the area..They can be dangerous too...Wife dropped hers with 1 shot ..Mine was about 200yds and I hit it to left of center and took a couple more while it was getting the hell outta there..Phillip got the whole thing in a Toyota bed somehow....Two trips to take 'em both..Doesn't matter where you are,they can see you,lol.
