Ep 250: Africa Hunting Trackers 101 With Kevin Robertson


Apple | Google | iHeart | Pandora | Spotify

Kevin Robertson is back on the show again today to kick off our latest series on hunting in Africa with a talk about African trackers. Trackers are an incredibly important part of a safari and are probably the single most valuable member of the team that assists a PH while out hunting. The best trackers seem to have almost magical abilities in the bush and Kevin was blessed to work with an incredible tracker during the majority of his PH career in Zimbabwe. As always, he has some great stories to share with us about that and, in that same vein, Kevin also shares the stories of 2 very interesting buffalo charges he had to deal with as well.
