It's been years since I shot much. But I saw the hat and had to ask.

Piet, you shoot a Hoyt or just wear the hat? I was always a Ben Pearson shooter myself.

Not to hijack this rapidly evolving post, but in just under two weeks SWMBO and I are going to spend a couple of nights in Ben's "old" cabin. His son owns the farm (1400 acres I think) and has built two more, very unique cabins on it. He's also quite a bow hunter himself.

Check out the cabins: http://www.longbowresorts.com/

Just over an hour drive for me and quite secluded.

What a brilliant image. I was hunting in the Karoo - the area this man hails from - a few years back. They have a rich heritage of pipe smoking (not all of it tobacco). Of course my pipe made me instantly popular with the local farm hands, one of whom asked if I had a spare pipe for her (yes, her). Of course I did. On another hunt, in another part of the country, I came across an old man who was smoking a Keyser which had burnt through & which he had repaired with duct tape. Said it smoked just fine. I offered him one of my pipes but he refused saying he only smoked Keysers (which, by the way are really bad pipes) & since he could not afford a new one, this one would do. Well, I have a Keyser sitting here at home waiting for my next trip into that area.

Pipe smoking is very much part of the SA history. I remember seeing a picture of a young Nelson Mandela with a pipe in his mouth. Sadly, I did not save the picture & have been unable to find it. Our previous president, Thabo Mbeki, is a pipe smoker. Guess we're in good company.

Yup, photo of http://pienaar.info/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2013/11/robert_sobukwe_141.jpg and http://pienaar.info/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2013/11/thabo_mbeki1-150x150.jpg smoking a pipe. With the anti-smoking campaign, every picture of Madiba smoking a pipe is probably destroyed.  Very Happy
