    I want to let everyone here on AH know that PH, Outfitter, Friend and former AH Sponsor Pieter Erasmus has taken seriously ill. In recent months Pieter has not felt well and as some here have noted in Private Messages to me he had lost considerable weight.
    I am saddened to inform everyone in this community that Pieter was taken by ambulance from his lodge near Rustenburg to Pretoria SA this past Saturday. That evening he underwent extensive abdominal surgery. Pieter remains in the hospital at this time recovering from that ordeal.
    I would humbly ask that everyone who knows Pieter to keep him in your thoughts and prayers.....“ and pray one for another that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much. James 5:16 (KJV)

    I am in contact with Pieter’s sister and lady friend and hope to share encouraging news soon.
    Thank you all in advance for thinking of and praying for Pieter. You might consider reaching out via Facebook where has has a page under his name. However, replies at this stage will doubtfully come soon.

    Hello,

    Just saw this. Thoughts and prayers to him and his family. I had hunted with paw prints back a few years ago and he was a gracious host.

    Here’s praying for a speedy recovery!!

    I met Pieter at an AH get together and a year later hunted with him. A great guy. My thoughts and prayers will be with him and his family.

    Thanks Charlie for the update! Please keep us informed.
    Pieter, I knew something wasn’t right when I saw you, but as usual you were a gracious host. Please get back to your old fun self. You will be in our thoughts daily until you come out of this a well man.
