To Whom It May Concern, I hunted with Jim Dieckmann of Havago Australia in September, 2008, for Water Buffalo. It was one of the best hunts of my life. Jim is an extremely knowledgeable PH. I was amazed at how well he knew the animals, their habits and their habitats, the terrain and the plant and bird life. Jim is also very patient and always made sure that he was setting a good pace for me. I was able to take an excellent Water Buffalo at 30 yards with Jim’s expert guiding. I could not have done it without him.
As a businessman, Jim is very up front and honest with his clients. He told me what to except and delivered exactly what he had promised when I booked the hunt. That means as much to me as the actual hunt.
I am highly recommending that Jim be awarded Professional Hunter of the Year for 2010. I cannot think of another PH who deserves it more than him.
Thank you for your consideration.
