Has anyone hunted with this outfitter in Namibia, Otjinuke Hunting Ranch. I've checked some of their references and so far so good, but I'm hoping to hear from some around here who have been hunting with him. Thanks for the help.

Having looked at their website I see they have been a round for some time. That in it self says something good. Good reports (although some what dated) but contact as many as you can. And then see how your questions are answered to get a feel of "is it a good fit for me". Good luck and you should have a great time.

JG Raider,

I recently hunted Otjinuke in November 2012. I had a wonderful time. Mr Muller and staff were outstanding and I thought went above and beyond. The lodge was very spacious and comfortable. The food is delicious consisting mostly of game from previous hunts. I took nine animals with only three not gold. The Steenbuck (just missed), warthog (by choice, but saw plenty of gold metal quality animals) and Kudu, misjudgment on my part. I saw several Kudu later that were definitely Gold Metal. My Impala is the new ranch No. 1. There is plenty of game and the hunting method is your choice. I mostly hunted by stalk, but took a couple of animals from the truck. For the price and quality, I was very happy and I would highly recommend the ranch.

I have personally hunted at Otjinuke Ranch twice. Once in 2006 and then again in 2010. Each time I hunted I was extremely happy with the quality of animals available to be hunted. Method of hunt I preferred was stalk. Gert has about 6500 hectacres (1600 acres) which provides lots of land to hunt. My frist trip, I took seven animals - kudu, gemsbok, red hartebeest, impala, blue wildebeest, hartmans (mountain) zebra and warthog. The warthog I belive is still number 5 in Namibia. My second trip, I took five animals - two blesbok, two impala and a burchells (plains) zebra. I really can not say enough about the quality of the hunt and everything involved with the hunt. Gert and Marina went out of their way to ensure the hunt was what we expected and wanted. I am hoping to go back there again soon to hunt again. If you do hunt there, I am sure you will have an excellent hunt.

6500 hectares equals 16061 acres.

I make plenty of errors too. I just didn't want some one to think it was 1600 acres.

My son and I just returned this past Tuesday (June 8th 2015) from Otjinuke Hunting Ranch, Namibia. Our stay was 12 days, 10 of which we hunted. We took 11 animals, most were Gold, the rest were Silver. From the very first day we explained that we're not about record book animals, just mature, representative animals of their species. With this being said, we still took animals that surpassed our expectations. The PH, Tracker, Driver, Skinner's, and the entire staff were outstanding. The Muller's, Gert and Marina could not have been more accommodating, friendly and concerned about our every need. The food was excellent and seconds and thirds was the norm. The accommodations were immaculate, with no shortage of hot shower water and clean linen. The U.S.A. representative, Gert "Jim" Muller (their son), who resides in Texas, was always available for questions, or concerns. I've hunted all over North America, with a host of great outfitters and guides, and I can say this operation surpassed them all. I'm afraid they've created a nuisance, in the words of Douglas MacArthur, "I shall return".

Does anyone know where to buy a chamber reamer to convert .458 win to .458 Lott? I hear it is very easy to do—?

Mtn_Infantry,
That's a monster buck you have in your avatar! Very Nice! Anyway, my brother in law and myself are planning to do some fishing while in Port Aransas. I think he/we are planning on taking a boat charter out a couple of days. He's a serious fisherman and I am not. Any suggestions?
Thanks!
Mark Griffin
