WOW! Nice job @Matrix! Now you have to update your avatar photo to that giant Cape buffalo!

Congratulations to you and the Mrs. on a great hunt! You both took spectacular trophies, and from what I can see, the Limcroma guys are still hitting it out of the park! We had the pleasure of meeting Jan Loots on our safari which I believe was Jan's first season with Limcroma. He is definately a very easy going, and engaging PH that seems to know his stuff very well. We enjoyed many conversations with him at night during dinners and around the fire. In fact, all of the PHs at Limcroma seem to step up and act as hosts for the entire outfit. They are collectively an impressive bunch.

You took some great photos there too. Thanks for sharing your report.

Well done Sir! I am extremely happy for your success on getting your buffalo. I am also pleased and impressed that your wife had an exciting, successful safari as well. You are great folks and your success is well-deserved.

Thanks for sharing your fantastic safari. Congratulations on some impressive trophies. A Cape buffalo with a bow and arrow has to be the ultimate rush! Great photos too. You have some wonderful memories there. Jan is one of our favorite phs. He is a lot of fun to be in camp with.

I'm glad to see a report from Limcroma, those guys are all great. My father and I rifled hunted with them a few years ago and had a great trip. That archery buff hunt must have been extra intense. Thanks for sharing all your great trophies and experience. Africa is a special place.

South Africa is an extra special place and the people are some of the best you will find anywhere. Going back to Limcroma is like going home again. In our trips there we have made some truly great friends and they have become like family....In fact when we arrived Riann, one of the PH's laughed and said we were like old furniture there! LOL
I cant thank everyone there enough...My PH Jan is the best, he has become like a brother to me over the years and we work great together. Jennings our Tracker is just a wonderful person, always smiling and working hard. Not to leave anyone out but thanks to everyone, Hannes, Riann, Drian, Maryke, Amanda, Karen, Otto, Guillaume, Henco....they are all great people and I cant wait to get back and see them again!

Mr. Terry,

Thank you for taking the time to write such an amazing hunting report for us. It was our sincere pleasure hosting you and your wonderful wife once again. . Congratulations to both of you on some great trophies and particularly an exceptional Cape buffalo bull with your bow! You proved up to the challenge and we are very pleased that you were rewarded handsomely for your efforts.... You both will always be a part of our extended Limcroma family, and we look forward to the next time we can share camp together to make more wonderful memories.

Warm regards, Hannes

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.

Hi Jody,
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.
