Love to have you along Gunner. Still a couple of spots open for Jun and can add a 5th to the Aug go.

Understand, the WuFlu caused "unknowns" regarding travel and such have a lot of people a bit anxious/nervous about committing to any trips at all to anywhere outside the US. Completely understandable!

Gerhard fully understands this as well as do I. That's why I've put enough money upfront with him to secure these prime, dark of the moon dates and someone who just makes a "commitment" now, doesn't have to put any money out of pocket at this time. Once we get to within the 90-100 day window for departure and/or airline tickets purchased, then you'd have to send your "deposit" to him to lock in your trip.

So, what happens if everything goes to hell with international travel, boarders again between now and time to send your deposit - nothing. What happens if things go to hell between the time you wire your deposit and the day we arrive - just like happened with the two groups I had planned for 2020. Deposits just rolled to this year and used them to lock in for 2021.

Know a number of folks will be attending the "Big Shows" in Jan-Mar, if they don't cancel. I had word from Gerhard yesterday they won't be attending the Houston DSC show this Feb as originally planned. With being completely shut down for the entire 2020 hunting season and having to front BIG MONEY to purchase the DG concessions a month before the world closed travel, it's just not to feasible to make the trip. Too, they do have a lot of bookings that have been rolled from 2020 to 2021 so not a lot of need make the trip.

So, with all that said.......we're about 6-months away from the 1st trip.

Morning Bill - I do. He just finished redoing his entire website and got it back on-line a few weeks ago.

Have been messaging with Gerhard over the holidays and things are still on. Country is "open" to international tourists/hunters and flights are starting to come back too, though still a bit limited. Capacity (flights) will be added as demand grows.

As I've stated above, no money required now, as I've got money on deposit to secure/lock in the dates. We MAY have to slide a the dates a day or two earlier/later to be able to sort out the flights. We should be able to lock in tickets 90-100 days before departure. Once that commitment is made, that is when those going would need to send him the deposit to lock in your spot.

Still spots available for both trips and if anyone can't make those dates, your free to contact Gerhard directly and see what he has open outside those dates. I'll still help you sort out paperwork/documents and with flights, but just won't be able to travel with you or your group.

As always, feel free to contact me or Gerhard directly with questions. The above "packages" are just the most frequent ones he does, but he is willing to customize them by exchanging culls for trophies or trophies for culls etc. Will even put together a totally customized hunt for you to your desires.

Can always PM me to request my phone number we can chat about any questions you may have or I can provide Gerhard's mobile number and you can call or message him via Whatsapp directly.

Michael

Edited to Add: PM me your email address and I can send you a short video of our Jun 2019 trip.

By the way, there are at least two members of this forum who've hunted with Gerhard on Sass Post and both of them are going back on the Jun and Aug trips.

They are: Autofire and GDSTX. Pretty sure if you ask them, they'll be glad to fill you in on Bots, Gerhard and his ops in/around Sass Post.

I’m thinking of taking my son for his high school graduation present in 2023. I’ll have to think hard on what we want to do and animals we want.
