Hi guys,

Well after years of dreaming about it I am finally off for a hunt in Africa, flying out Sunday our time.

I don't have a list of critters I wish to adorn my walls, more so I'd be happy with one good animal...everything else on top of that will be cream in my opinion.

So... The BHs are sharp, arrows packed. My recurve, optics and camera gear stowed.


Back on the 13 oth next month....until then guys, keep the breeze in your face.

Hi again Guys,

Well what can I say... other than my first hunt in Africa was something else! I am speachless on my time spent there, I really am.

For years I have always wanted to hunt Africa after reading so many books on the place, hunters who have been there and also watching many a DVD to get my fill of the place. Well let me say this for those that have never been and wish too... those books, DVD's and hunting stories in mags like TBM ...DON'T do the place the justice!!

I was asked along on this trip - a group of 4 rifle hunters were originally booked in - but one lad had to pull out for personal reasons. Being the only bow hunter out of 3 other rifle hunters raised some eyebrows when they asked where my bow was at Sydney airport... they were expecting to see a compound case. But alas... tis I, the recurve shooter in your company I replied!

We had a 6 days touring around Namimbia, seeing the sights and acting as the tourist. We stopped into a local Taxidermy place on the way to the Airport...

Here is me alongside an Elephant skull... I'm 6'2"

And here is just a sample of the amount of animals these guys work with. Good only knows how they keep track of it all!!

More to come guys, still unpacking etc...
