    Big Game photography!

    You won't need to take your lamp if you are going to use rangers to guide you, all "night drives" are done by using a huge lamp to pick up eyes in the bush, i shouldn't think you will be able to hold a camera and a lamp? If you are using an organised/tourist guide, they will have ample lamps etc. Most use a tracker, who is responsible for shining the lamp and finding game, if its an organised thing, i would doubt that you'd be allowed to shine your own lamp around at will. Plus tbh the trackers are trackers for a reason they know the game and the land inside out and will find you what you want to see. That said in Africa pretty much anything goes if your prepared to pay for it, money talks I spent 6 mths working in Southern Africa, and took night drives out most nights, photography wise its tough! Even with a red filter you struggle to get decent quality images, however night drives tend to leave around 3pm so you do get a wonderful hazy light before you stop for sundowners which is stunning for photography purposes. African wildlife and Photography are my 2 biggest loves in life . . . what i learnt to do was leave the camera at home on night drives and keep the memories as mental photos. Daytime was photography time. Have a wonderful time, Africa is a magical place, it gets under your skin and you never quite get over it.

    Puppy show . . . . Our Old English crackers!

    On paper your right a tenth season hound shouldn't be still doing the job and to a degree that warrants his food bill . . . . however a professional huntsman that knows his hounds as well as this one does, would not keep him if he was not up to his job. As has been rightly pointed out, an experienced hound will lead the young guns and teach them to not always rely on exuberance and pace to find a line. A pack of hounds is a working being, a well put together pack will hold hounds that cover all manner of skills to get the job done in the most effective way possible, young, old, fast, slow, athletic, hard, and thorough hounds are all needed and all serve their purpose in a days effective hunting. Having followed this pack for 10 years i can assure you there is not one hound in that pristine kennel that is not up to its job, perhaps its about being a professional huntsman and knowing more about your hounds, country and job at hand, than the avid follower, interested in speed and numbers. . . . . . . .

    GSP . . . STOLEN!!!!!

    CROSS POSTED. Stolen in the Dover Area in Kent While out walking my 2 GSPs this evening a scum bag in a white Berlingo type van managed to grab Mischka my GSP bitch and get her in the van before I was able to get close enough. The police have been contacted and have the details of the vehicle and the details of Mischka. If anyone in the South or anywhere gets offered a Liver and White Ticked Bitch, please contact me if there's no paperwork. She is just coming in to season as well so someone may realise and be looking for a dog to cover her keep an eye out. She is chipped and I have notified the national register so hoping at some point I will get a result.
  7. I've got an earth already sorted and in use for fox cub shots.
  8. Well done all . . and congrats to Bradley and Dolls . . well deserved.
