Hello John: This is my first post on this site, but thought I'd give you a reply because my I, my wife, son, and a good friend have just returned from our first African safari. We used Garry Kelly Safaris and ....you guessed it.....The Hunting Consortium. I am, by no means, an expert on the subject, but since you sound like you're planning a similar venture, I might be of some help. First and foremost...DO IT. We had a fantastic time hunting in the Mkhuze Game Reserve near Kruger Park and ZuluWaters Game Reserve in Natal Midlands. Garry Kelly set us up with 2 great PHs...excellent guides, knowledgeable about the animals, and great fun to be with. Bob Kern 's operation at the Hunting Consortium planned our 3-part trip with "military precision"...everything was organized for us, and they were most patient with all of our "first-timer" questions. I think you have picked 2 winners for your first safari. I don't want to bore the other good folks on this forum, so if you would like to talk further with me, feel free to send an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org or call me at 410-287-5086. Good luck with your trip, and don't forget...planning is half the fun.
I have a like new VC .450 I might part with. I had it built in 2013 and it has served me well. Also have a VC fitted leather trunk case for it along with the plastic case it came with. I'll take 14000 for all of it.
I have been looking for ideas on the best way to display my European mounts from Africa. I came across some of your shield work and was wondering if you would be willing to make one for me? If so, please let me know the cost. I like the shield with the two spears that you built for a member years ago. Thanks.
