John Sharpe looks good and is a known quantity.

In the bush, John Sharpe is the man we all wish we could be.

I endorse him 100%.

Having hunted with him twice, in Zimbabwe, I'll hunt with no other. Truly the consummate professional.

Damn it...I have been saving for a grizzly hunt and would hate to blow it on a buff hunt instead, but from what I have read John Sharp is THE man to hunt Africa with.

May have to ponder this opportunity.


All women want me. There's no point in denying it, nor trying to change their nature.

It is something I have come to accept.

Please feel free to PM me or if you want to talk on the phone. John is truly a fine gentleman and as a client, you are the center of his universe. I know there are many other great PHs out there, but I just don't think one can do better. j

Thanks Jorge...I have a 5 hour layover in Denver tomorrow so I plan to google-fu my heart out looking up all things buffalo hunting...I still have my heart set on a griz but will think about this opportunity.

Griz can wait. Call John Sharpe and have a life enriching experience.

Unless you're hunting with Phil Shoemaker. Then it's a coin flip. wink

I'd personally do the griz hunt. Especially if being done spot and stalk and via spike camp. The terrain and elements are tougher, and I'd personally want to scratch that off my bucket list at a younger age because of those circumstances.

Besides, who the heck can get excited walking for days on end in the heat just to simply shoot a fricken cow?! grin


As to the man offering the cape buf hunt.... never heard of him. Is he any good? wink

Ted, I tend to come down on FOsteology's side. Grizz hunting is for the younger guy, so I would tend to do that first while I was younger and save hunting buff until later. That being said, John Sharp won't be around forever. I don't know how old he is, but at some point he may decide there are better things to do than chase after dangerous game with a client in tow. Just my two cents. I only know Sharp by reputation and I'm sure you couldn't go wrong with him as your PH.

Put me on your PM list as well if you like. I hunted buffalo etc with John Sharp in 2015 and am planning to hunt with him again in 2018 or '19. Spend your money now. Grizzly hunting isn't going to go away, but African huntin, especially DG, is getting more and more difficult to do. Seize the opportunity.

Add my name to the list of encouragers. I've hunted buffalo twice with John (2013 and 2016) and it is a grand time. John's stories and watching Isaac work are worth the price of admission, a buffalo is just gravy.

LOL, I got your old 577 and my 500 Nitro out today with q-tips and some fresh rig grease for the lynch pins, then drug clean oiled bore snakes through the barrels, they're ready. smile

I will be heading out with these folks in a month or so. I count on Wade Derby for my booked hunts and he has never let me down. A pile less money than John Sharp and I believe it will be a great 12 day buff/sable/?? hunt.

I recommend both.

Sell body fluids....
and/or your body.
Deliver papers.
Borrow against your 401k.
Sell a horse.
Or just smash it on your VISA.
You're single.
Drink cheap beer.

After being to Africa in May,
I would say do it sooner rather than later.
