    I have hunted plains game with him. He has contacts with some concessions there. Clarify anything beforehand with him.

    Research carefully. Seems to me like there has been some controversy in the past with that name. Search function here as well as the other network may be helpful. Then again it could be someone else I'm thinking of.

    I think you're thinking of Theo Blignaut.

    No idea what, if any, relationship JD has. As previously stated, research any outfitter carefully. And if you find smoke..... :A Outta:

    Yes. Prices were much higher than posted ones, farms too small. He said farm owners went up. Got a much greater deal from outfitter that has over 22Ha that he owns himself. I’m booked for March.

    Can you tell me who you booked with and how to contact. This other outfitter has called me on the phone, texted me pictures of beautiful trophy animals. He has given me some decent pricing but really no bank account info for a deposit or if my money will be safe. Also only saw 2 reviews. The person I spoke to said they lease land in East Land Cape I think it was called. That he had a 30,000 ace ranch and and 10'000 ace ranch available. There was a dispute years ago and the property hasn't been hunted since until just recently.

    I booked with Huntershill Safaris. huntershillsafaris.co.za
    Highly recommended by Keith Warren of The High Road show on The Pursuit Channel. Youtube carries several of his shows filmed at Huntershill. The owner is Greg Harvey. gregh@queen.co.za
