I shot the tuskless and buff cow that is shown in these pics. I had the pleasure to hunt with chap and Pierre and meet lindon in the camp in chewore south. the group that hunted with including myself had an awesome time with some top professional hunters! They delivered big time and all 4 of us went home with a once in a lifetime experience and the trophies we wanted. I have no doubt that I will be hunting with mbalabala safaris next time I am going to africa!

You sound, and look, like you run a great outfit!

What is this creature? It looks like a super-duper raccoon

Flip - that is a serious Leopard taken at Mbalabala (second last).

And how did you get that first hyena to give the camera 'the eye'? Very well posed trophy.

Hoping you have a spare tuskless end of year:)

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.

hi Mr fowler

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...
