This past June was my first hunt with Gordon, observing a lioness hunt in the Kalahari with a good friend; and continued on to a plains game in his Limpopo concession. The PH's were highly competent, extremely hard working and a helluva lot of fun to be around. The camps were fantastic in every respect and the food was outstanding. Gordon and Jon are the kind of first rate people that would be welcome in my elk camps. In 40 years of hunting elk and mule deer in the Colorado, Wyoming and Idaho Rockies, very few individuls have ever had that privilege extended to them. With Gordon, you meet as individuals sharing only a common bond and brotherhood of the hunt and leave as valued friends.

Just got back from hunting Plains Game with Gordon. Stopped in to see old friends at Chanaca Camp and shot a beautiful trophy red hartebeast. All I can say is thank God for "Justice" and
"Johnas". The shot was a long one through some heavy brush but they were able to track it down. Then we visited one of Gordon's "new camps"/the River Camp loaded with hippo, crocs, bushbuck, waterbuck, warthogs and lots of plains game. This is an ideal place to take a wife or girlfriend. The lodge and service is 5 star. The staff is outstanding. Shot some animals. Gordon shot a beautiful bushbuck for his game room and got to try out his new rifle. Then we were on to "the Mountain Camp"--a huge 55,000 acre tented safari concession. Everyone sleeps in their own huge tent with in-suite bathrooms and varanda overlooking the valley and the mountains in Botswana. Pool, of course, huge baobub trees, baboons, game filled water hole right off the dining area. The hunting, again, is outstanding. Shot wildebeast, impala, warthog, gemsbuck, etc.--all trophy animals. Gordon won't let anyone shoot anything but trophies. While I was there a hunter from Johannesburg came to hunt giraffe and managed to connect with a huge 20-25 year old black male giraffe. The trip was fantastic as usual. This was my third safari with Gordon and again was first rate. Can't wait to go again.
