I was close to booking this hunt, couldn't get the logistics to work. It was a great offer and glad you are going to be taking advantage of it. Should be an awesome hunt and cant wait to read the report!!!

Enysse looks like I'm going to miss you by a few days, I'm leaving on the 30th to hunt with Abri, purchased the warthog package he advertised. The sable price he has is outstanding, I also want to hunt one when there, along with a Limpopo bushbuck. I hope to read some of your report before I leave, everything so far has been positive with Abri, (ie) communications, pictures, I feel he has a good outfit. Warthog shouldn't be a problem for you, Abri has sent me some pictures of some nice big ones, going to try and harvest some with my bow. Good luck, can't wait to see your pictures.

Abri has been great with me too! It’s raining in Chicago and Wisconsin today. I have to work day shift at the hospital and drive down to Chicago after work.

@tay50, hopefully the warthog gods will be with me they have worked against me so far. In order for them to get big they have to get some protection. I have my fingers crossed. I’m sitting here at ORD (Chicago)exhausted and the flight has not started. I never sleep well on planes.

Wish I was having these kinds of problems today...

Good luck with the Warthog gods.

I don’t have pictures of the animals I have taken. On day 2 I took a 41” sable in the morning around 1000. We were driving around and it was bedded. We drove past and parked the truck. We got out and sable took off running. We took up after it and then the sable stopped by some bushes to see what was chasing him. I got the gun up and shot him just behind the shoulder. The sable started to run again. It took us awhile to sort the trail out but we found him after an hour plus of looking. The blood trail was not very good. It was a very nice trophy. Horn spread at the back was 25 3/4. The animal was 6-7 yrs old. A little gray, black and brown in color.

On day 3 we found a roan as we were going around the outer fence. He was facing us and not presenting a great shot. The roan ran off and then we pursued on foot. We caught up to him standing in the brush, looking back at us. I got the gun up and hit him right behind the shoulder. The roan ran about 100 yards and piled up. The horns were between 27 1/2 and 28 inches. Very beautiful roan!

We have seen many big warthogs but they have all escaped from getting a bullet yet! We have seen many big nyala, waterbuck, red hartebeest, zebra, gemsbok and giraffe.

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.

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.
