    Bluey, Africa does not take kind to woman, like everywhere else in the world they are seen as soft targets. To each his own, I agree to disagree. I am just not banking on a female PH to hunt with me ever.

    Gordon, I did my course through Uncle Jacques, hard man, but fair. Failed a few guys and girls on my course. Two things he hates are PH's with Jack Russels and Oakley sunglasses:D those are besides his general intolerance for unprofessional conduct and wise asses;)

    Next time I go to Africa to hunt, I think I will demand from the outfitter that I will have a female PH.
    I am sure I will have a great hunt.
    Even if she doesn't look like a supermodel, as it sounds from a few in this thread that keeping you warm at night is what women are good for besides cooking and cleaning.

    Yes for sure Jacques if from the old time, if he don't like a person he can for sure show that... Know him for years and respect him !! Do you know that he never ever take a client for hunting during a Sunday ? Then you probably also know Quintus from NC in Grahamstown, super straight and hard, will not give anyone a chance to pass the General Knowledge for even 74,9 % when it should be 75 % !!:cool::cool::cool:

    Gordon, many of us still won't hunt on a Sunday, says so in my client info sheet.
    Don't know the other fellow,but respect his old school ways!!

    I never come across the "sunday" problem when clients pay for 5/7/10/14/21 days it is what we deliver, for Jacques it's not a religious issue, it's that things was going bad time after time when he hunting with clients during Sundays...

    I know he also refused to leave camp with a client one day, the same client that kept slamming a round in the chamber ever time he got on the back of the Cruiser, got to respect a man who sticks to his guns:)

    Hi Bluey
    i am not one to have the time to read all the previous posts - some of us have hunting to arrange and do! but thanks for your support and i am looking forward to hunting with you later this year! I am confident that your post hunting report will clarify a few of the mentioned issues!!! Some people have some valid points but others are total hogwash and I firmly believe that you cannot generalize a PH by sex but rather by each person character and experience in ALL of the related areas that make up one's hunt.
    cheers
