Terry and family from Alaska joined Karoo Wild for a terrific 9 day plains game hunt. Nibbs and Arnold guided sons Robert, Gary, Jim and James (son in law) and daughters Laura and Claire on their hunt for a multitude of different species. Gary was fortunate to take a zebra on the afternoon of the first day and a very successful hunt followed. We were all impressed with the knowledge and hunting abilities of the entire family. Mountains were climbed, animals tracked and near and far shots taken. The skinners did a fine job in skinning out the two giraffe and the meat will be used to feed the local community. Congratulations also to Laura and James for hunting their first ever antelope/deer with us. We enjoy introducing hunters to new experiences and watching the excitement grow in a new hunter. James and I worked especially hard for his impala and it was a joyful moment for him. Laura's first animal was a world class blesbuck taken after a good stalk. Gary was like a kid in a toy shop and the grin never left his face the entire 9 days. Encouraged by the persistent Arnold, he made a once in a lifetime 420 yard shot to get his first kudu bull. Robert and Claire enjoyed their hunt as much as Gary did and had some memorable moments. Robert's giraffe kill and kudu bull taken high in the Winterhoek mountains will surely be memories he will cherish for some time. Their tenacity and love for hunting and new experiences encapsulate what we all love to see in our hunting guests. Terry and Jim took some terrific animals themselves and were determined to experience the hunting moments of the rest of their family. We enjoyed the family's time with us and hope someday to welcome them back to the Karoo for some more hunting adventures.
