Awesome trip report (even though you didn't take a shot), and cool pictures. Looks like a successful hunt and life-changing experience to me. I can't wait to hunt Zambia next year!

What a great adventure! Thank you for sharing and being such a great diplomat for hunters everywhere. I didn't know Zambia was in such bad shape. You are a true humanitarian.

Hey, bulldogmark, great trip report. Thank you.

I have a question... My family will be going to Zimbabwe and South Africa in a few weeks and are filling up our excess luggage space/weight with clothes and school supplies to donate. What would you say are the most needed items based on your school visit?

Apologies for late reply, I would suggest asking them what they need when your there but if you have weight spare then writing books, pens and pencils is good. The rest you can get there. Just be carefully dishing out food and sweets as I nearly got crushed.

I'm sure I am a day late and a dollar short but if the deal on the .416 falls through let me know and I will buy it.

Kevin,
Played rookie league for the Yankees in Paintsville after winning the College World Series at Fullerton State, in1979. All I could think about was the movie “Deliverance”- lived up in a hollow with some other players. Refused to go on a moonshine run because it was a dry county-no way. Met some of the nicest people on the planet there! Van Lear the home of Loretta Lynn was highlight of summer LOL.

im happy to do these deals for 2021

i will knock off 10% off each deal if you take 2 so $18000 per package

look forward to your response

regards
Mule deer and Colorado elk seasons almost done! Hunters driving farm roads, looking for racks, their PH driving them along, I ask that you not pull into my drive. The buck behind me, on the boundary line of the GMU somehow knows. The hunter laughs, I would invite you in to see my Searcy rifles but social distancing prevails, darkness arrives and the buck slides away into secret tree grove...
