Sherman Unleash the Fury Package Imagine yourself driving our WWII Sherman Tank through our specially developed tank course that meanders its way around some of the most picturesque scenery that the Texas Hill Country has to offer. You will negotiate the challenging war zone course with anti-tank obstacles, drop offs, and a crystal clear spring fed creek fording, in the middle of an amazing 18,000-acre exotic game ranch called Ox Ranch. Maneuver your way to our scenic tank range, where you will unleash the concussive power of the Sherman’s 76mm main gun as it hurls its 14-pound projectile down range, just as it would have done on the European battlefields of WWII. If that’s not enough of being a part of a living history adventure, you can then defend your position from the top of the Sherman and experience what the M2 .50 caliber machine gun felt like for War Daddy, as he attempted to hold off an advancing Nazi SS Battalion, in the block buster movie Fury.

American Bald Eagle in Flight Wood Carving

Woodcarvers John Garton and Joe Adkins from the mountains of West Virginia are donating a full-sized America bald eagle in flight. The carving has an outstretched wing span of six feet and can be mounted on a wall. This impressive basswood carving took nearly a month to complete. After the feathers were outlined on the eagle’s body, it took over 30 hours to carve the veins on the feathers. The 20 primary flight feathers were carved separately, steamed, bent into a curved position, painted and placed on the end of each wing. To date there are only five of these eagles in the country. They range from Nashville, Tennessee to Alaska and from Oklahoma City to Jackson, Wyoming. You can see more realistic wildlife carvings in booth 1034.

Big 5 Photo Safari for 2 in South Africa (5 days)

One hunter will have the opportunity to join Southern Lakes Safaris in Wanaka, New Zealand for a five day Tahr hunt. With a focus on smaller group sizes and individuals we are able to offer you a more personalized package specifically designed for your objectives. The people you book the hunt with will pick you up from the airport, hunt with you and deliver you to the airport again, so you will always be with a familiar face. Our operation is based in Wanaka because of the stunning scenery and boundless hunting opportunities in all directions. Wanaka is quickly becoming one of the world’s most sought after holiday destinations, and is a mere 30 minute drive from the Queenstown airport. Although a smaller township with a population of 7000 people, it has a range of fine dining and shopping opportunities, making it very appealing for the non-hunting members which can be added for $350/day. Additional hunters may be added for $550/day and your hunt can be upgraded to include red stag, elk, chamois, fallow deer, and ram per the current price list. If the magnificent Red Stag, spectacular Himalayan Bull Tahr or the extraordinary Buck Chamois are on your trophy list then contact us. We have access to some of New Zealand’s best and most exclusive private hunting areas and can cater to any and all hunting requirements. This 2:1 rifle hunt (2 guides to 1 hunter) must be taken in 2018 or 2019 and will include accommodations, transportation, and license fees for one trophy Tahr. The pursuit will take place on foot and will require the hunter to be relatively fit. If there is a need for additional helicopter use due to the client’s fitness level, there may be an additional charge. Houston Safari Club thanks Southern Lakes Safaris for this 100% donation.
