I just got an Email from BSC that Neil is retiring. He wouldn’t know me, but was always cordial and helpful with question even when I didn’t book a hunt with him. I’m sure lots of guys here have many great memories thanks to Neil.

Damn, can’t edit titles and realized Summers got autocorrects to Summer, sorry about that…

He’s hosted me on hunts and I’ve hosted him on a few Whitie hunts. Class act, admire him a bunch. Enjoy the rest as you have the past. C

I've known Neil for 30 some years...good guy! Happy retirement to him!

Neil helped set up a very short notice bowhunt for me when I sent to Zambia for a work project in '96. Bowhunt was in Zimbabwe an hour south of Victoria Falls on John Lay's place. Wonder if John survived as a white farmer down there?

Nothing but good to say about Neil! Wish him the best!

As cordial and chivalrous as the come. Booked my first african safari with him. Mark is a class act as well. G

Wishing Neil the best for a long and enjoyable retirement. He is a prince of a gentleman.

Congratulations to Neil. Met him in South Africa in 1994 after BSC setting up the trip. Just the start of using his services over the long years. As has been said, a fine gentleman. I can't begin to imagine all the successful bowhunting trips he has been responsible for arranging over all these years.

From: Mad Trapper
Good luck Neil on your retirement!

Neil is a friend of mine and we hunted together in Australia and in Spain. It was always easy to see how Bowhunting Safari Consultants has been so successful for so many years. He's a fun guy and I enjoyed every minute in camp with him.
