I met up with Pieter from Bandur Hunting Safaris in SA at the SCI show last year and was intrigued with his operation. Does anyone have any experience hunting with him? I am interested in taking my wife who also hunts but is not so keen on traveling out of the country. Thanks in advance for any feedback

Thank you for your reply. We found Pieter and his wife Eloise very pleasant and would like to book with him. However I was unable to reach many of his references.
I'm trying to do a little research before is book

Always speak to references sir! If you can't contact given references that could well be a Red flag. Keep trying to contact them because on the flip side of the coin they could have just the positive information you desire.

I have personally hunted with Pieter at Bandur Safaris and my son and husband are there for the 2nd time right now. We have another large group trip planned with them next summer as well. We have hunted at other lodges and there has been NO COMPARISON to the amount of animals we were able to see/stalk/etc at Bandur. The amount of land and variety of animals is amazing. I am not a big hunter so although I did hunt 2 animals, I spent one day in a blind with my camera simply shooting HUNDREDS of animals that visited for a drink at the watering hole. The staff is amazing from the private hunters to the kitchen/cleaning staff. Pieter, Eloise, and their 2 young sons are lovely to be around and every hunt with Pieter is exciting. He has such an amazing love for what he does that it is infectious even to someone like me that isn't a big hunter! Travelling to South Africa is truly one of the best adventures that I have ever been on and I highly suggest you make Bandur your lodge of choice. My husband and I would be happy to be of any further assistance if any of you want more info!

Hi Luke. Just saw your message. I am in Dillingham, and have been since 2002. I took an elementary teaching gig here, taught here five years, and then got a job with Togiak National Wildlife Refuge as their education and outreach specialist. Recently I just got a promotion and now I'm the Visitor Services Manager. Prior to DLG I spent 6 years teaching for Lake and Pen in Nondalton.

Hi TT
I am glad you found some useful info in my posts. Hard cast WFN with GC will do the job fine. I trust Veral Smith (owner of LBT company) - I believe that he can provide you with some finest HC bullets. Many companies are coping his design. I can help you from here in developing max loads (40.000psi) just let me know which powder you are using (I use Quick Load software which turns to be very reliable).
