    Thank you sir. It was my first time hunting in such wide open terrain. I really enjoyed it. Very fun to be able to spot animals from huge distances then figure out how to close on them. Very challenging too. That area is in a severe drought right now, there were late rains that made the few trees and bush very green and beautiful but it was too late for the grass to grow this year. Hope you have a great hunt in September.

    Thank you. Already excited to get them back and on the wall. My wife wasn’t even sure she wanted to mount a Wildebeest until she saw this one up close. Now she is having him done as a wall pedestal to show off the hide as well as the horns!

    That was one hell of a report. Glad to hear its possible to have such an amazing adventure with your wife. This sounds exactly what i'm looking for as she is not interested in going with me on my backpacking trips in the western US or BC. I will definitely be adding Wintershoek Safaris to my list of places for our trip i'm planning for our anniversary Africa trip. Congratulations on your beautiful trophies.

    Great report! Very enjoyable to read, and very real. Your emotions really came through. I am happy for you and glad you had such a wonderful trip.

    I think this is a can’t miss hunt for you and your wife. My wife has never been a hunter and I was unsure how she would enjoy a week of following me around. She is already planning to head back and see Nyara with Wintershoek.
