It's amazing what 10 minutes can do for your attitude at the end of a hunt.

Congrats on getting your bull.(y)

Thanks for sharing the story with us.

How did you find unit 2? was there good numbers of elephant there? did you do a report? if not how did you get on there Hank?
Environ, this is your story, and a great one it is! I won't clutter it up with mine except to say I got on well. Lots of elephant when I was there - but shooters are always rare!

I love a good hunting story of triumph at the last possible. I bet you were extremely excited, and emotional. I would have cried as well.

Congrats! Unit 2 is leased and operated by my dear friend and mentor Eduard Katzke (Katzke safaris)
Also Vice President of PHASA.
It is a very good area, keep in mind bull migration and movement do not always coincide with cow movement.
Without a doubt I would nominate Unit 6 as the best elle area of all Matetsi units, but as a U.S. citizen you'll struggle to hunt there, as there is a general (rank) connection.

However, the Stiles brothers also operate on Panda Masui (good for elle) as well as Kazuma.

My best always

I have a like new VC .450 I might part with. I had it built in 2013 and it has served me well. Also have a VC fitted leather trunk case for it along with the plastic case it came with. I'll take 14000 for all of it.

Hi Jody,
I have been looking for ideas on the best way to display my European mounts from Africa. I came across some of your shield work and was wondering if you would be willing to make one for me? If so, please let me know the cost. I like the shield with the two spears that you built for a member years ago. Thanks.
