Hunting with Jack Perrett and his family at Linksfontein
Jack has hunted with Wintershoek Safaris for the last four years and decided to hunt at Linksfontein and Karreekloof this year.
On the hunt, Jack Perrett, his wife Kristen and daughter, Channing were joined by Kristen’s parents, Roy and Delinda, as well as Kristen’s brother, Robert, his wife Kim and Kim’s son, Chip. As always, their South African friend, Ashley joined.
On arrival, spirits were high and although tired, the adrenalin and excitement was flying high. Three experienced PH’s accompanied the group – John Tinley, Johan Maritz and Phillip from Linksfontein. Determination soon paid off with the Common Springbuck, Blesbuck, Impala, Roan and Blue Wildebeest in the salt! Jack took a beautiful Sable Trophy with his bow.
During the hunt, Linksfontein celebrated Delinda’s birthday with a visit to the local wine cellar and a surprise sun-downer. Back at camp, a nice birthday barbecue awaited them. To end the evening, Delinda was surprised yet again with candles, cake, and singing.
Whilst the men hunted, the ladies relaxed, did game drives, visited the Big Diamond Hole and went gift shopping. Channing didn’t stand back for the men and got a nice White Springbuck. Jack returned later for another two days of bowhunting, wherein he managed to take down a Red Lechwe, Warthog and Blue Wildebeest!
