A great season so far

Several huge Kudu in the 60 inch plus range have been taken. A possible new world record Suni, numbers of great Lions/Leopards, Elephants over 60 lbs per side, and lots of record plains game. Everyone has reported great hunting and each said the game dinners was outstanding. One of my clients took this huge Lion with his new Chapius double rifle.

One of my friends is in Mozambique hunting with one of the outfitters I promote. Four of them took 4 Leopards and 4 Buffalo in 8 days!

4 leopards in 8 days is literally unheard of, let alone throw in the buff's. Great job to everyone involved there.

And, That's one heck of a Lion.

Another friend just took an 85 lb-88 lb tusker in Zimbabwe. Now the only problem is getting enough quota to fill all my clients bookings. That's not a good thing when people want to hunt.

These days, any elephant over 60 is darn good. That's an awesome animal. It's on my bucket list...
