I’m from lee county right in the western tip wedged between Tennessee and Kentucky. I have a hunt booked with KMG hunting safaris in late April. If you are looking for a hunt contact Marius. He is very personable and will respond to your questions and is great to reply quickly. Lots of great hunt reports also.

Awesome! Have you hunted with them before? The problem I'm ruhnning into now is that there are alot of Outfitters and I do want to get the most bang for my buck without breaking the bank too hard.

This my first hunt with them and Africa so I can give you info when I get back. They hunt the Eastern Cape province and I think he does Namibia also. I did a ton of research when I was planning. If the Eastern Cape is something you are interested in I would give him a call and let him give you a quote for your hunt. There are a lot of good ones on this site. Do research and get prices that a lot of the process.

Awesome. Yes please keep me updated. The eastern cape is definitely an option. Right now the three plains game trophies I'm interested in are Gembok, Zebra, and blue wildebeest. I cannot afford any of the big 5 but I'll have a lion hunt before I'm dead. After you get please let me know the total cost including taxidermy and shipping. That's a hard one to calculate.

Welcome to AH! I live in VA as well but I am up north now. Went to Virginia Tech so I am really familiar with that area. Feel free to shoot me a PM and I will see if I can dig up some shipping and taxidermy quotes/receipts for you.

Hi Luke. Just saw your message. I am in Dillingham, and have been since 2002. I took an elementary teaching gig here, taught here five years, and then got a job with Togiak National Wildlife Refuge as their education and outreach specialist. Recently I just got a promotion and now I'm the Visitor Services Manager. Prior to DLG I spent 6 years teaching for Lake and Pen in Nondalton.

Hi TT
I am glad you found some useful info in my posts. Hard cast WFN with GC will do the job fine. I trust Veral Smith (owner of LBT company) - I believe that he can provide you with some finest HC bullets. Many companies are coping his design. I can help you from here in developing max loads (40.000psi) just let me know which powder you are using (I use Quick Load software which turns to be very reliable).
