    HWL, do not let that stop you...bring clothing resembling what we have at the hunt...long sleeve shirts, corduroy pants and bandannas..it will be fine.. a good hat is essential since it is winter in our country , the days /sun still burns hot ...the nights are colder or better put cooler..(y)(y)(y):LOL::LOL:

    Good Evening to you HWL. We really try to make every hunt memorable event for every hunter who participates . For every hunter , this is a memorable event in different forms, from making food on the camp fire to the actual hunting of every game we hunt and shot for camp food and biltong/game wors...every year I try to add another aspect to this hunt. This year we manage to bring two donkeys, courtesy of Hansie Minnaar ...next year Johan Greyling and I want to take our horses with. It will give me the opportunity to hunt out further and get nearer to the game on horseback. I wil be taking an ox wagon to Herman Nel to build a three quarter canvas canopy on the transport ox wagon Johan Greyling gave to Wallace Vosloo since he lost his ox wagon with all his original 1883 era items . It was destroyed in a huge fire around Knysna forest, killing a whole family who was close friends of Wallace Vosloo..it still is something he finds extremely difficult to overcome.... Please come and enjoy this hunt, that is the only main aim we expect you to do..make friends, as well as teach us about how you in your country does hunts. Every this is an enormous learning experience for all of us...every one learns a lot from every body on this hunt...on the end it is important to enjoy every moment since it is so special to do this hunt....I will forward your shoe size to MC Heunis so he can make your pair of " Velskoene/Vellies as we know it....As I mentioned previously, I will supply you with my first self build 1883 era tent...stretcher, linen , blanket and pillows.
    I will give you all the information/you will be able to follow us on the What`s up group when we usually commence with preparations around February 2019...
    (y)(y)
    There are a few members who will converse in your language, German as well...Germany was part of the Anglo Boer Wars by supplying the Boere with 7X57 Mausers who made the marksmanship of the Boer nation legendary...:LOL::LOL:(y)(y)
