2021 – and that is a wrap
Why would you hunt in Namibia? Well, for a start – and I am not even going to talk about the game – it’s the people. I was reminded of this in the beginning of the month when I visited the professional hunters’ AGM. Aside from their few squabbles, which seems to change little every year, what hasn’t changed is how wonderful the people are and how incredible that country is. The feeling of wide-open spaces, sunshine, fresh air and so few people! If you have not visited this African destination, I cannot say enough about how wonderful this country is. We have a number of African Dawn Members in the country if you are thinking about it.
On to the cover pic. Sure it’s a buffalo. But no ordinary one. Part of our mission is to get content and stories from travelling international hunters. It’s a way to share what they have experienced with our audience, hear more of their personal accounts. What is more of a challenge is getting our professional hunters to write! We have been fortunate to have a few masters of the keyboard as well as being hunting professionals. But it is great to get fresh input. This month’s hero picture is from Zimbabwean PH, and African Dawn member; Thierry Labat. The story is about this buffalo in the picture, that his client hunted. Do me a favour and make a point to comment on his Facebook or drop him an email ([email protected]). PH’s do not seem to understand how their day in the office is actually pretty incredible, even if only to read about - let alone experience on a safari!
On that note – have a wonderful Christmas. Treasure the special times with family and friends. If we meet at the shows, or on African soil back in 2022 – it will be a real pleasure.
