    Namibia July 2018 ( a return to Africa)

    Hello Tikka We were hunting on Otjiwa. A conservancy in Otjiwarongo in northern Namibia through my company Global Pursuit. I appreciate it very much!

    Yes sir, the pics with the trees is Deadvlei. Its probably one of the most photographed places on earth for dramatic nature pics. It was really incredible to see! The dune behind Deadvlei in the photos is called Big Daddy. Supposedly the tallest dune on earth. Sossusvlei was very close by. Just on the other side of the canyon. It isnt as dramatic as Deadvlei with its standing dead acacia forest, but it has the most beautiful dunes. Also the 2nd tallest dune is there, of course named Big Mamma. These areas are great to see but they are WAYYY out there. It is 5-6 hours of washboarded dirt roads just to get to the entrance of the National Park. Then its another hour drive to these areas plus an hour walk in from the parking. Theyre way back in there! Id recommend Swakopmund for just all out fun. Tons of stuff to do there and dang near just as much sand! I appreciate it, guys. ✊✊

    Yes, PH’s dog. My daughter loved her so she was in pretty much every photo we took. Her name was Wrinkles and she was a tracking whiz. Luckily her services were not needed by us!

    Thanks. The Roan was measured as the 2nd largest ever to come from Namibia. He truly is a monster bull.

    Sossusvlei and Deadvlei. You have to REALLY want to see these to go. 5 hours of dirt roads to get here. Stunning place though!! It is literally the middle of nowhere. Tallest dunes in the world and theyre a beautiful peach orange color.

    Swakopmund. An awesome little German enclave town right on the coast.
  7. Hello CWT Been awhile since the last time I poked my nose in. Probably since my Spain/Russia trip last November. Well, didnt draw anything anywhere... again. But I DID finally return to Africa after a long 8 year hiatus from the dark continent. Ive been mountain hunting as hard as my finances would allow the last 8 years and Africa just took a back seat. I made Namibia the priority this trip as I have never been there before, and because it is the safest country in Africa, I decided to take my 10 year old daughter, my wife and my mother on this trip. Ill spare the written details other than to say it was a fantastic trip. 10 days of hunting with some incredible trophies taken.. a few for me I had been waiting to hunt for many years. We hunted north central Namibia not too far from Etosha Nat Park. I was fortunate enough to have taken a monster sable bull and Roan bull as well as Hartmanns mountain zebra, Damara dikdik, steenbok, and 2 gemsbok oryx bulls. My daughter was Annie Oakley this trip. 6 kills with 6 shots from her 243. Im pretty sure she has the bug as badly as her old man now! She took 4 springbok, an impala, and a blue wildebeest. After the hunt, we spent an incredible week in Swakopmund on the coast as well as a few days in Soussusvlei and Deadvlei in the Namib Desert. National Geographic stuff 💯!! Beautiful place! So here are a handful of pics to enjoy. It was great being back in Africa but now the mountains call again and Oct cant come quickly enough! Good hunting to you all and congratulations to those with a sheep tag in your pocket!

    These two Tur completed my Tur Slam and when I was successful with the Chamois, they called it the Caucasian hat trick! Got it done!

    Spain & Russia 2017

    Well I didnt draw a single tag in about 10 state draws but that didnt stop me from going hunting. Just back from 3 1/2 weeks in Spain and Russia. In Spain, I was after Iberian red stag and a Fallow buck. Was successful in taking fantastic representatives of both. We then headed over to the Moscow and on to the Caucasus Mountains in the south of the country. I hunted these same mountains on the far SE end last year in Azerbaijan for the Dagestan Tur. This trip had us in the middle part and far west end of the range. In the west, you find the Kuban Tur and Caucasian chamois. In the middle portion of the range, you find the naturally occurring hybrid between the Dagestan and Kuban, calling them the Mid Caucasian Tur. It was an incredible trip. It wrapped everything I love about our sport into one trip. Exotic travel, incredible trophies, big mountains, difficult conditions, different cultures and people, new foods, sights and smells. A trip I will never forget. This trip puts me one Capra (goats) away from my personal hunting goal of a Capra super 20. Hopefully Ill complete this journey next year in Switzerland with an Alpine ibex. Hope you enjoy the photos.

    Water buffalo taken

    So I've wanted to plan a red stag and water buffalo hunt in Argentina for several years now but just never had the time. It now looks like it'll be a stag only trip down there when I finally make it!! Big Argentine water buff bull down this morning for me. The only difference was I took this bull much closer to home than the requisite 5000 mile trip south. I took this big boy on a friend's 7000 acre ranch in the Tex hill country. Not only did I end up with a great bull, but it also put 625lb of boned out fantastic meat in my freezers and the freezers of my friends and family. The 375H&H made short work of him with a frontal brain shot with a 300gr Sledgehammer solid. I was amazed at just how big this variety of water buffalo is! Certainly larger than any Aussie water buffalo or Cape buffalo I've taken. He'll look great on the big boy wall. Great way to kick off the 2017 hunting season with Spain and Russia in 2 short weeks!!!
