Some photographs of our Namibian hunt for you to enjoy

Hi all, I thought I'd share some of the photographs I took during my latest hunt - this time in Namibia.

One of my regular clients was on a business visit to South Africa and asked me if I could put something together for him on short notice. As this particular client had hunted with me on 5 previous occasions - every time in SA, we decided to do something different this time around and opted to go for the Namibian experience.

We hunted a game ranch in the Windhoek district and over a period of 5 days we were successful in bagging 2 kudu, 2 gemsbok and a springbok. Herewith a couple of pictures:


Gemsbok taken from 180 yards with a 7 X 57 Mauser


Client, tracker and I on the hunting vehicle


Big kudu - also taken with 7 X 57

I can recommend Namibia to any hunters out there who are considering an African safari. The daily rates are affordable, animals plentiful and accommodations and catering outstanding.

Regards,

Chris

Thanks Don, I hope to see a bit of the South West next month when I'm in the States. Unfortunately it will probably be cold and snowy sad but on the upside I will be hunting white tail for the 1st time - something I'm looking forward to. Thumbs up

We really had a great time in Namibia and I'll try and post some more photo's as soon as my client has sent me some of the ones tat were taken with his camera.

Thanks for sharing those pictures. I really enjoy reading about hunting in other parts of the world. I am heading out soon for a whitetail bow hunt. Hunted yesterday morning and saw a small buck. We'll see what this afternoon brings.

Good chance you won't run into a lot of snow in the S.W. next month. Where are you going?

Question about the photo's. I just noticed what looks like shot shell's in your client's shirt? Were you also hunting birds?

Yes we were hunting birds as well: guienea fowl, sand grouse and pigeons. Just for some fun. The wing shooting was excellent up there. I was invited to hunt white tail in North Carolina, Misouri and Wiscinsin and am really looking forward to it.
