    Thank you all for welcoming to this great site. I recently got home from my first trip to Africa where I scored a stunning Kudu (54") and a fantastic Impala (22") along with a unique duiker and a few other amazing critters. I am a combat wounded marine and this trip wouldn't have been possible without the help of Mark Daniel Brasal of the Send-a-Vet foundation whose mission is to send wounded veterans on the outdoor adventures of their lives. A massive thank you to John McAdams of Big Game Hunting Adventures for arranging everything for me and his immediate responses to any inquiries or needs that I had. My hard working PH's Johan Seyffert and Kobus Kok of KS Big Game Hunting for their incomparable skill in scouting analyzing a trophy animal and dedication towards giving a hunter the ultimate African experience, at no moment did I ever feel that this experience was fabricated. The genuine hospitality and dedication to the purest form of a perfect hunt shown to me by Johan and Kobus was the exact kind of experience a first or fifteenth time "Africa Hunter" would enjoy. every amenity one could ask for but with the remoteness and feel of a "Back Country" hunt in the states as soon as we stepped away from camp. I was lucky enough to have Izaak Steyn on the hunt with me to capture quite a lot of breathtaking footage, ill try to post the video below. please get a hold of John at Big game hunting adventures to fulfill the ultimate experience in hunting Africa. I cannot wait to get back and spend some time with my new friends and looking for the next great trophy.

    Mike: It was an honor and a privilege to host you on that safari. We had a lot of fun with you on your hunt and we're thrilled that you had such a great experience.
    We could not have put this hunt together without the help of Mark Daniel Brasel from the Send-A-Vet Foundation. They do great work for veterans and you can learn more about them at: http://www.send-a-vet.org
    You can check out the video we made of the hunt below.

    As previously stated I am a Marine and its a miracle I don't forget to breath sometimes so you'll have to forgive me for a couple of grammatical errors (a little fuel for the other vets/service members on here). First Johann's last name is Seyffert not "seifert" and second, John's responses were immediate not "intimidate" haha. I'm glad you enjoyed the video Izaak worked very hard on it and was with us every step of the way and as a part of your hunt package you can hire him for a nominal daily fee just ask John about it when you book.

    WOW, first let me say thank you for you'r service. Second this is definitely an organization I will get behind and support.
    Looks like you had a great hunt and one that is well deserved. I am going for the first time in april/may. Hope we have as good a time as you did. I am on the board of a 501 veteran organization honor flight kentucky, we fly vets to DC to visit the memorials. Glad to see there is someone providing this for our vets!

    Mike's kudu had a 3rd horn growing out of his forehead and the duiker had a deformed horn. So, he ended up taking 2 very unique animals on his hunt. I don't think we could do that again if we tried! :)
