Return just now from Matetsi 5 in Zimbabwe with @Martin Pieters Safaris after hunt elephant bull (over 41 pounds) and buffalo (over 40) I only can say that was my best Safari after have done in Africa more than 13. The camp, the staff, the hunt, was really nice and Martin is one of the best PH I Know. I have finished the hunting days with one nice spoted hyena, one warthog and one impressive reedbuck. All I have to say is Thank you so much Martin for this Safari, will hunt together soon. Use one LARM rifle 458 Lott.

Looks like a very successful hunt in the Matetsi. Great area from what I've read about it.

Congratulations!

Congratulations some very nice trophies, excellent reedbuck. Nice to hear Martin is getting some good reports in. Previous reports have been sketchy.

What a safari. Martin is a great guy and excellent PH. I hope to hunt Matetsi someday with him. @Martin Pieters Safaris
Do you have more pics? Scenery, camp, etc? I’d love to see more of Matetsi.

Philip the camp is perfect, and is recently renovated (this photos are old). You will enjoy with Martin, is a very good hunter and better person.

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...

Ellwood Epps has 1 box of 25-20 in stock. Look them up on the web. They are located in Orilla Ontario.

Many thanks for re formatting my article for the forum

I served my time in both the bush and during the bush war

I hope it did it justice

Good morning friends

i‘ve taken to heart a suggestion to tell my story about a lion hunt 37 years ago. ‘I don’t know, but am thinking there are site rules as to posting and file type. Three of the four posts (chapters?) are done, I took time away from here to write up the story. I have a couple of photos too.

also, I’m going to dissemble the rifles and see if Butch may have signed them. I’ll let you know.
