Several African PHs were honored recently by the African Professional Hunters Association. Of particular note is Eric Pasanisi of Tanganyika Wildlife Safari, who received the John Sharp Award for Dangerous Game, as well as The Ox of Okavango Award. The dangerous game award was for that 82 x 83 pound jumbo Pasanisi lead a client to in Tanzania this past season. You can see the photo in the Trophy Gallery section of our web site. The Ox of Okavango Award is for Pasanisi's generous support and leadership in heading off the lion crisis this past year. You can read more about that in this issue of John Jackson's Conservation Force Bulletin delivered with your Hunting Report.
For the best trophy non-dangerous game taken, Harpreet Brar received the Robin Hurt Award. Brar led Hunting Report subscriber Mike Ambrose to a lesser kudu that measures 35½ inches and 36 inches long with bases of 7½ inches. The trophy is a contender for the number one spot in the SCI record book. (See photo in the Trophy Gallery section of our web site.) Other APHA Award winners include Johnny Chipman for the Young Professional Hunter Award, and Roger and Katherine Flahive for The APHA Hunter Conservation Award.
