2009 The best trip of my life. I would have PMed you but some curious glitch has developed that I am working out. Really fascinating to hear your experience as I will tell you that those are exactly what I did NOT see at that stand. It was mostly warthogs, kudu, and gemsbock at that time. Just goes to show that bowhunting is entirely unpredictable. I did love that stand also.
Did you intend to shoot a giraffe when you went. I find the idea intriguing but would not be allowed to come home again. Pretty much anything else would fly. I am not much for monkeys either but at least in Namibia that is not a likely as in RSA. Nice pictures and makes me "homesick".

Steve: The Giraffe just kinda happened, never intended to shoot one, you might say a gift from the hunting gods. In Africa the Giraffe is just another meat animal, I'm sure you know that, Just here in the U.S. people make them out to be something there not. I thought my wife would be a little upset also, but I explained the meat went to widow lady that Antonie helps support, then she thought that was a good thing. I'm toying with the idea of going back in 2015, don't know, that plane trip gets longer every time I go. FYI, Antonie plans to attend the PBS banquet in Cincinnati in 2014, if he can get things worked out. You shouldn't be too far fron there, bet he would to see you.
