rest of the story

Critter..... While in Africa, I wrote a pretty extensive journal every day. It took me plenty of hours but I now have it typed and on my computer. It's over twenty pages long but gives a detailed description of every day and what happened. If anyone should want to read it, just put your email on here, and I'll send you a copy. I think it's too long for this site. Now that it's typed, I'll go back and add pictures. Will probably end up about 50 pages or so. I may put in into a PDF format so I can send it out. Will also make it into a book. There are a couple of very interesting stories that took place while we were there, one dealing with a cape buffalo.

Thanks

Thanks Quinton. I can tell you I'm looking forward to having them in my trophy room. Especially the nyala as it will be a full body mount. They are one spectacular animal! And the warthog is just too ugly not to mount. Africa is a fabulous place to hunt.

I was thinking that you could

I was thinking that you could always give us the story here on the forum on the installment plan. A page here and page there, it would keep us in suspense that way.

I picked up a bottle of Amarula cream to toast your successful hunts and safe return

I met a guy in Florida who was from south africa and he told a story of the elephants and monkeys eating the fermented amarula fruit from the ground and then trying to walk.  Funny story... and then we had the same amarula cream on the rocks.  Quite good!

It appears that the powers to be haven't checked out his story yet after he submitted it to the forums.

I had him send me a email with it so you might want to PM him with your email address or to me and I'll forward his story on to you.
