ADDITIONAL HUNTER COMMENTS AND/OR OUTFITTER/BOOKING AGENT REBUTTAL
Unless you want stalk and crawl like a sneaky predator, you must have a good marksmanship, because most of the shots were over 200 yards. Be prepared to walk around two miles, crawl about 200 yards and stalk all day. For perfect shots, I would recommend practice and a good range finder. The outfitter was fantastic, friendly Namibian people, since your arrival at the airport, you will receive care from all Kowas family. Great place to take your spouse, the farms have everything to make you feel at home. We enjoy the accomodation and hospitality. Also, you can try, your game at dinner and breakfast some kudu liver hum delicious.
