    @CAustin will be the new AH representative for Pawprintsafaris.

    I have known Charlie Austin for more than three years and in this time we have become great friends. Whenever I am in the USA I stay with Charlie.
    Charlies first hunt with me was during 2015 for elephant along with his son Bryson, since then Charlie has booked with us each and every year, returning again during July 2018.
    Charlie has already hunted four of the dangerous six as well as numerous species of plainsgame during his six African safaris. Our relationship is built on mutual respect and trust.
    Since many people helped Charlie plan his first safari he feels he should share his knowledge with others and help where he can.
    Charlies words when I asked him to represent Pawprintsafaris was "I will be honoured and it will be a pleasure assisting prospective hunters".
    I look forward to working with Charlie, his phone number and e mail can be found in his new signature, feel free to contact him.

    Congratulations Charlie! Don't go and get too excited now and quit your day job!!!
    I believe you made a good choice Pieter. Charlie gave me a lot of advice on the little things to be prepared for on my first trip over.

    Congratulations to both of you.
    Not knowing any of you, but Charlie has always been helpful, welcoming and courteous to the people here as far as I have seen.

    Good luck and all the best.

    Congrats Charlie. You like so many of us were helped by AH members that had hunted Africa previously. Now paying that favor forward brings a personal satisfaction in knowing that your knowledge and experience can help others to achieve their "dream hunt." Those broad shoulders of yours come with a sense of humor all of which will make you a excellent Rep. for Pieter and Paw Print Safaris.

    Pieter,
    Thank you for the kind words and welcome to the team. I am indeed honored to be part of the Pawprint team and very much look forward to helping other hunters plan their Safari. As you say our relationship is built upon trust and mutual respect. I have trusted you literally with my safety while hunting dangerous game and can attest to your skills and competence as a PH and outfitter. I have the utmost respect for you sir. You and the entire Pawprint team exceed expectations of your clients and I hope to add value where possible to that overall experience.
    I want to thank @billc for helping me with my hunts over the past three years and for being so gracious with his time during this transition. When I called Bill this week he was hard at work but stopped to answer my questions. There are no doubt countless happy Pawprint Safris clients who have benefited from Bill Capwell’s assistance over the years. Thank you Bill.
    To all of my AH friends please allow me to say in advance thank you for your support and continued friendship.

    Charlie Austin

    Thank you my friend. Hunters helping other hunters is the way it should be. Don’t worry about me leaving the day job as I still have to put a roof over the family’s heads.

    Congrats Charlie!

    You gave me so great advice a few years back when deciding to go after buffalo and I know you will be able to help many new hunters as well.
