Hi all,

Straight to it, there is a guy on Facebook by the name of Kobus Wild that's advertising hunts at **outstanding** rates. I'm making no accusations, but the suspicion among the locals is that it's a scam.

He claims to be working out of Thabazimbi, issue being that he can't provide an exact details and the PH's that I know from the area have no idea who he is.

Please be careful, if I am wrong I will most definitely apologise and retract the warning, just hoping to save any of the AH members from dodgy dealings and huge disappointment.

Hope all are well, stay frosty.

Thanks for the heads up. Will keep an eye peeled.

There is an old quote that is relevant here. "If it seems too good to be true, it probably is."

I'm sure I am a day late and a dollar short but if the deal on the .416 falls through let me know and I will buy it.

Kevin,
Played rookie league for the Yankees in Paintsville after winning the College World Series at Fullerton State, in1979. All I could think about was the movie “Deliverance”- lived up in a hollow with some other players. Refused to go on a moonshine run because it was a dry county-no way. Met some of the nicest people on the planet there! Van Lear the home of Loretta Lynn was highlight of summer LOL.

Mule deer and Colorado elk seasons almost done! Hunters driving farm roads, looking for racks, their PH driving them along, I ask that you not pull into my drive. The buck behind me, on the boundary line of the GMU somehow knows. The hunter laughs, I would invite you in to see my Searcy rifles but social distancing prevails, darkness arrives and the buck slides away into secret tree grove...
