Has @IvW ever said what the name of his operation is? I bet he'd definitely be fun to hunt with.I’ve been thinking that I’ve crossed swords with IVW a few times, yet I wouldn’t hesitate to hunt with him if the opportunity arose. Should make for fun times around camp!
Jerome of course, I doubt many in the forum wouldn’t hunt with.
I don’t have any experience of hunting with other “punters” in a camp, domestically I hunt alone more than ever so it would be interesting to give it a go.
When that big male lion was roaring at us when we were tracking him, that was definitely something I'll never forget!Toby458, I’ll pay you for the compliment the next time I see you.
Just kidding! I thought we had a good time and there was certainly no confusion on who was to pull the trigger…age before beauty!
Actually it was nice to know you were at the tail end and not me when we found out one of my lions had circled around!
@spike.tjust a slight word of caution,...... as i know of very good friends falling out totally when one got better trophies, or trophies the other didnt get at all. this not a one off either and these were people who had known each other for a long time.
@spike.tunfortunately i think you are correct.....or the reasonable amount/in moderation clause would be invoked!!!!
I see the point regarding AH members/acquaintances as couples on safari could complicate things. But I wonder if the concern would be reduced any if 4 couples were involved? (I.e. more than two)In all seriousness though, I would consider it with the right folks. It is definitely better that you know someone first, but that doesn't always mean anything either. My best friend growing up and I lived together in college. We almost killed each other....
Now what would be even harder, but not impossible, is to do couples. If that is involved I would definitely want to have spent time together first.
@kevin PeacokeI have made good friends on this site, would love to have someone along some time, but they need to love Land Rovers! And impala nuts for snacks, and single malts, and cigars.
