those are some awesome pictures. I can't wait till the day that I get to experience Africa. I am applying for a position studying large carnivores (lions, cheetahs, hyenas, wild dogs etc) for next summer. I am really hoping I can get it. It would be a once in a lifetime experience.
Kevin, I really appreciate the photos and the stories about your African hunts. Like many others on here it is on my destination list. Don't tell my wife, but I am planning to go to celebrate my 60th birthday. i am 7 years from that so I have time to plan and save, so keep the stories and photos coming.
Let me start off by saying that I am a scaredy cat.
For someone that spent 3 years in 82nd Airborne jumping out of all manner of military aircraft, my friends find this ludicrous - but... it is what it is!
Climbing stand? Yep, still scared - put me up 15' and that is about it.
Ladder stands? I am better in these - but still cautious.
Chain on stands? Used to love them, now they terrify me.
I was once ridiculed for putting chain on stands waaaay too high - some of my friends...
