    Well folks, I'm heading back over for another safari in a little more than 1 week and excited! I am blessed to be able to take the time it requires off of work to do trips like this! I am also blessed that this will be my 7th trip to the African continent, the 6th for hunting!!

    I have been to Zim once before in 2017 in the southern part of the country, this time around I will be in the north on Lake Kariba!! I will be joined by friends @whitetail and @JKO Hunting Safaris and really looking forward to sharing camp with them.

    For the first time I am really doing a "what Africa gives you" type of trip after the 1-2 species I am specifically targeting. I will be after DG (2 or 3 species in mind), and on the lookout for any PG of opportunities such as hyena, kudu, bushbuck, warthog, and klippy!

    I will start a hunt report thread asap once I return (y)

    We have been counting down the days basically for about 8 months and now it’s finally time!!!. Going to be an epic adventure for sure buddy!!! Really looking forward to hunting again with Jacques Spamer of JKO Safaris. And couldn’t agree more- this will be my first “take what the Dark Continent gives you” as well- but the also with the 3 DG species I have in mind . We must not forget our sunscreen and DEET!!!

    Hey buddy- I really am going to be hosting a gathering within the next couple months when I’m back from Zim. My taxidermist is mounting a few pieces for me now so the trophy room looks a lil more “complete” (he still has several to do from last summer still lol)... The Castle Lite is already stocked in the fridge and Amarula by the bar . We’ll have a grand time reminiscing about Safaris past and making a plan for the future!! I’ll keep y’all updated on time.

    Just an FYI about the company that makes it. According to my outfitter, he refuses to buy Amarula any more because the company has gone viral against hunting!
