Thanks watched my case get on the plane no hassles. Thought everything was going too well. Just got a fraud report on 3 of my credit cards. Oh well still going hunting

Sounds like Africa up next ? Or where ? No matter, who needs credit cards when you're going hunting ? :-) Good luck and tell us how it went !

Africa is the destination.

if you used your credit cards in a different state or for unusual purchases this can happen. Just call the number and find out what's going on. they can usually clear it up pretty fast.

Good Luck and have fun! Scar

Yeah I did just that. Cards are back at the office locked up. Seems someone is having a great time running them up. No worries though I'm going hunting :)

Well this morning we walked across the compound and I'm set with a borrowed bow hunt tonight

From: Fuzz
02-Dec-18
Gonna assume your bow didn't take the trip? That's a bummer! Hopefully it gets there soon! Good luck... Shoot straight!

From: ELKMAN

no bow?

Yup borrowed bow. One Springbok in the salt . Keeping a good attitude and a big helping hand from my PH and the landowners is making this happen. Could have been a disaster. Maybe Ken can post a picture of the animal for me.

So what happened with your bow? Just didn't show up? Or broken? Or what? Glad to see you are persevering!

Dave continues with a nice zebra....Cape Town wine tour yesterday and a deep sea adventure (25 miles out) scheduled for Monday... the Western Cape is a beautiful area for combining a hunting & touring adventure AND, given the climate, you can hunt here during the “off season” from the typical May - September season in the northern parts of SA.

From: Fuzzy
06-Dec-18
Hey Dave! Looks like you're havin fun!

From: t-roy
06-Dec-18
Definitely some nice animals. Congrats!

Ken...... is the Cape area still in drought conditions?

06-Dec-18
There’s been enough rain to stave off the “disaster” status that seemed imminent. It’s drizzling rain there now.

06-Dec-18
Hope the wine tour went well...we did that a couple years ago and had a blast! Yea...what Dale said...no eating the elephant crap this time! Hahaha...

Dave just can’t help himself. He bagged two nice Cape Kudu today. Cape Kudu are smaller versions of their Greater Southern Kudu cousins...but wait...didn’t he mention his credit cards had been compromised??? No wonder he’s shooting everything :^)

07-Dec-18
Nice bulls Dave!

Looks like Dave is really enjoying his trip! Congrats on some great animals.

09-Dec-18
Yea, you do Casey. We’re not anchored in the same area, same lodge, same hides, same old same old. We have a variety of venues situated in the best hunting areas. A different quality experience every hunt. Same team of PHs, cooks, etc. but variety of options with either myself or my partner on every hunt with you.

09-Dec-18
My wife and I will be with Ken in the Limpopo in April. Come join us Casey.

From: Highlife
10-Dec-18
Boys and girls this is the last animal. fishing tomorrow than the plane flight nightmare lol. I'll do a recap and answer any questions when back in the states. That gemsbok was an amazing all day spot and stalk. BTW sometimes they flush like pheasants lol had to be here
