Normally, being a gunmaker, I wouldn’t promote the use of a Bow, if only because it would not seem in our best interest! However our congratulations go out to Kim Gattone on her first bow hunting safari in Africa, where she successfully took various game with her bow under the experienced guidance of Gerhard and Yolande Vos, owners of Daggaboy Safaris who kindly hosted her trip.
Kim, an accomplished athlete and high altitude mountaineer, now works for The African Hunting Gazette and Covey Rise magazines in the capacity of advertising executive. Travelling to South Africa to attend both the PHASA convention and the NAPHA convention in Namibia, Kim took the opportunity of being in Africa to take her bow on its first hunt abroad.
Always neurotic about the condition of her hats, accompanying Kim, was ‘master’ hat maker John Morris Jnr. who when not making the superb hats at the family business Rocky Mountain Hat Co. is a wildlife photographer. John made his first and quickly second trip to Africa this year and looks to be making the journey a regular one.
