    Thank you to AH and all those who contribute. You were a great resource in planning my first Safari in South Africa. Thought you might like to see some photos. Had a great experience with Eland Safaris.
    Can't wait for my next.

    Welcome to AH JOHunts! Glad you had a great time on your first African hunt! You took a lot of beautiful trophies, well done and thank you for sharing... certainly a nice way to give back to our community as many live through just that between their own hunts. Please post a hunt report when you have a moment, that would be nice!

    Thank you, I am very pleased with the quality of my animals. I spent many hours here and other places determining the characteristics of each species. I knew what I wanted before I went, but that still didn't make it easy. Had to work hard at it most of the time and the rest of the time I was just lucky.

    Wow, what a bevy of beauties you got. Lots of "Gold and Silver" in that bunch. Please write up a report, we'd all like to share your adventure. I only have one question. What are you going to do for an encore???

    JOHunts, Eland Safaris is a very fine place! I went there with a group and had a grand time! Very nice compound and facilities. Their skinning area was amazing!
    Glad you had a good hunt and you took some fine trophies!

    Man, Those are some awesome trophies. Congrats on a great hunt. This has to be the coolest and most informative forum that I have ever come across. Thanks Jerome

    Great photos of great trophies. I am sure there are plenty of us on this site who have been on numerous safaris and not taken the quality like yours. The waterbuck in particular is outstanding.
