Newsletter 68

Dear Hunting Friends

I hope this 68th version of my newsletter finds you well.

Since my last newsletter in November 2017 we have done some good hunts although the December/January period is our low period due to holidays and since the rains effect our ability to move around the concessions freely due to mud and floods, the rains were not as good as expected however we are currently experiencing some late rain in the Lowveld that is a welcome surprise and will make for very good early season elephant hunting in the Gonarezhou area especially.

We attended the early season hunting shows: SCI where Jono and Adriaan worked our booth there, I went to Dortmund with Steve Meyer for the 11th year in a row that Take Aim Safaris has done the German hunting expo, our fair chase free range hunts are always well received by the European hunters that attend that show, thanks for the support.

For the year ahead I have booked a record number of hunts already with the bulk of the booking season still to come so look out for my 6 or so newsletters that you will receive this year that will be full of interesting information and photos from our hunts. From my own point of view I hope to see you in the newsletters, if not this year then perhaps next year, book now to get the dates and hunting quota that you want.

To all our Spanish clients we will once again be attending the Spanish hunting convention CINERGETICA this year in Madrid from the 1st to the 4th March 2018 we will be in prime booth # 321 in the main hall, please come and visit us there.

You may be interested to know that a client of mine from Russia shot the biggest lion in Zimbabwe last year, judged in accordance with skull measurement’s. The hunt was guided in Matetsi by PH Steve Meyer, here is the award Steve won and a photo of the very old lion:

I do have one more lion on quota in Matetsi for this year, I have already sold two.

I also have a Gonarezhou lion on quota for this year that has not been sold yet.

Since my last newsletter we have done some great hunts, here are the updates and photos:

A client of ours from South Africa hunted this buffalo in the Lowveld of Zimbabwe with PH Steve Meyer in November 2017.

During January 2018 PH Nixon Dzingai guided this client from Europe on this buffalo, crocodile and elephant bull hunt in Sengwe 1 and 2 Zimbabwe.

During December 2017 PH Nixon Dzingai guided a client from Europe on this dagga boy hunt in Malipati Safari area, Zimbabwe.

During February 2018 PH Albert Johnson guided this plains game hunt in Limpopo South Africa:

How about this baobab in the Lowveld of Zimbabwe:

As always thank you for taking the time to read my newsletters and pass them onto your hunting friends, if you are planning a hunt in South Africa or Zimbabwe please allow me the opportunity to tell you more about our hunts and our pricing for instance our Gonarezhou dagga boy hunts are to my knowledge the best priced buffalo hunts available in Zimbabwe, I do have quota and dates available on all big game hunts for 2018 and beyond.

Hunters best wishes.

Newsletter 65

Dear Hunting Friends

I hope this newsletter finds you well.

Since my last newsletter on the 11th July we have had some great hunts to update you on, please read on below.

During July we welcomed a client from Europe who hunted in Malipati Safari Area (Gonarezhou, Zimbabwe) with PH Nixon Dzingai, the client managed to hunt this 14 foot crocodile, this very good leopard and some plains game:

Also during July myself and fellow PH Riaan Louwrens hunted with long term clients of TAS for these two lions and some plains game.

Now if you want to know what a dagga boy looks like then here you go:

This bull was hunted in July by an RSA client of mine on his second buffalo hunt booked with me, last year he also shot a great buffalo. Ernest has just booked his 3rd hunt with me this time another buffalo and an elephant. Hunters this is what you are looking for when you hunt the Gonarezhou safari areas, free range, fair chase dagga boys on their terms in their back yards:

Special thanks to PH Simon Dzingai for guiding this hunt.

Another RSA client of TAS hunted the Gonarezhou Safari area: Sengwe 2 during July where he was guided by PH Nixon Dzingai on this dagga boy hunt:

Also during July this time in Matetsi and Binga clients from the USA hunted these very good trophies with PH Steve Meyer:

During August I hunted with clients of mine on a very good RSA concession that is open to Botswana on the Limpopo River, we hunted this very good elephant bull in the 35 pound class and we saw over 100 elephants including 10 good bulls. We also hunted this crocodile that measured 3.4 meters and this very good plains game including this 30 inch waterbuck. A special thanks to PH Philip Craucamp for the hunt.

Also during August a client of ours from Europe hunted this buffalo bull in the Malipati Safari Area with PH Nixon Dzingai.

As always thanks for taking the time to read my newsletters and pass them onto your hunting friends. PH’s, Outfitters, Clients and Agents please feel free to contact me for bookings in South Africa and in Zimbabwe.

Hunters best wishes.
