    After years of dreaming of going to Africa it seems the time has finally got here! I fly out in a few hours for my journey to hunt Namibia with Jamy Traut safaris! I will be planning to hunt Kudu, gemsbok, zebra, hartebeast and whatever else might come along! I will fly delta to joburg, overnite then fly air Namibia to Namibia! This is just too surreal! I am beyond excited! Thanks to everyone that helped me out over the years with all of my questions!

    Good Luck on your Safari and remember take an extra second to make sure your first shot is right and you'll save hours of tracking later.
