    Very Nice… I did a trip to Namibia and we hunted with Rifles.  Our guy can do bowhunting… but he really doesn’t like sitting in blinds for long.  He’s too restless.  When I go back, I’m definitely taking my bow.  Hunting over a waterhole looks like way to much fun!

    Those are all nice critters, btw!  Did you Kudu have the Ivory tips?

    Man, that looks like a great time!  I love to see this stuff except for the envy it tends to produce. {#emotions_dlg.mathews_embarassed}

    I’ll likely never get there, but it’s fun to see the experiences of others. {#emotions_dlg.mathews_thumbs_up}{#emotions_dlg.mathews_cool}

    Never say never Chris… Yea the trip costs some coin, but bargains can be had if you know where to look.

    The Outfitter and his family are the best. It’s in Namibia and it’s called Makalaan Safaris . Not an easy place to get to though.It’s a six and half hour drive from the airport.It’s two days going in and out from JFK airport. Not a put and take preserve and no guaranties. His property is 25 square miles and even though there is a perimiter fence to mark out the property line the animals can either go over it or through it. The good news is there is very good amount of game. All the animals have the nose of a whitetail .Nothing will come in if the wind is wrong not ever the warthogs! My animals were average except my Impala which is not the one in the photo was exceptional  for the area . I took the animals on my list that presented the right shot opportunities. I saw bigger Kudu, Gemsbok, and Warthog.

    I had a feeling that was Namibia.  Were you hunting up in the north or in the south.  Our outfitter was up in the Triangle… which was only about 3-4 hours from Windhoek.

    That is the link to our outfitter… Haggen and Bridgette…  very nice people.  Very down to earth.  I think their main farm was 7000 ha which is about 27 square miles.  He ran cattle on his farm which he also hunted… The game had no issues moving around/under the cattle fence.  High fences kept the critters out of the corn and away from the neighbors to the east that shot anything that moved.

    I’m very glad you got blood on your knife!
