Darrell Holland, owner of Holland Shooter Supply is an accomplished gunsmith, instructor and hunter. Darrell has been bringing students from his long range hunting/shooting school to Big Water Safaris for several years. Darrell builds long range hunting rifles and markets his own line of hunting scopes, both rifles and scopes have proven themselves, out here in the real world.
The group for 2023 consisted of Darrell himself, Todd Fisher, Gene Kelly, Jacob Kelly, Cliff Neuse, Ron Puhl, Bart Lewellyn and Alex Lewellyn. With the exception of Alex Lewellyn everyone had hunted with Big Water Safaris before. It was like having old friends over for a hunt. While every member of the group is an experienced hunter there was still new lessons learned by both hunters and PH’s. Hunting is not an exact science, maybe that is what keeps us hunting. As always, a lot of fun was had. Hunting when done properly is about much more than killing animals.
Professional Hunters: Bennie Breytenbach, Dewald Kearns, Heinrich Funck, Mielie du Toit and Thinus Steyn. MF Scheun visited to spend some time with old friends and George Funck worked his butt off as general assistant.
