On our predator hunts, calling or trapping courses we like to make the client feel welcome and not under pressure, we don’t want to cramp your style, so we offer you the freedom to tell us were you want to hunt and when, this would be after you are more familiar with farm and how the land lies. But for night hunts the guide will select active locations. We have no strict itinerary so you can tell us when you want to have course lectures and when you want to have breaks and hunt a little in the day. We believe you are willing to part with your cash so we want to make you feel relaxed and under no pressure. After all you are on holiday and also want to have fun.

Ek wil eerstens jou dankie se vir so gowonderlike website. ek het al baie dingetjies daar geleer en dit wat daar gese word werk. ek jag slegs n paar keer n jaar wanneer ek die geleentheid kry om na ons plaas in Britstown distrik te gaan. Kry maar min geleentheid, want om die maan op die regte tyd te vang is maar moeilik as jy nie self op die plaas is nie. Die rede waarom ek jou kontak is om te hoor hoe lank dit sal neem om een van daai rooifilter ligte by my in jacobsdal uit te kry? Ek stel regtig in een belang, die lig waarmee ek werk is maar vlouerig en mens sien nie so mooi nie.

En ek wil ook graag hoor of n mens die Foxpro stelle by jou kan koop.

dankie

Danie Botha

Dear Gary
 
Kindly forward me dates, time and location for the next available course/courses as I am very interested to learn more. I must congratulate you on the web site as it is very informative and contains a wealth of information.

Middag Gary

Ekt my Cd’s en chocolate gekry – thanx. Ons was nog net 1 aand uit en alhoewel dit gereen het kon ons darem n black backed mannetjie optel met die social call. In total het ons 5 ingeroep met die 3 cd wat mens die tyd van die jaar kan jol. Ons het slegs skote gekry op 3 waarvan die ouens slegs 1 kon raak skiet. Die ander skote was seker te ver, so 150-200m. Wat is die average afstand wat die goed op inkom tot hul vasteek of wegdraai (as jy by die speaker sit). Sal hul bly inkom al het jy hul opgetel met die lig en dan weer lig afsit? Die ander 2 jakkelse het slegs oe gewys op ver afstand en ons het hul nooit weer gesien nie. Watter sterkte lig gebruik jy-is ons lig dalk te skerp met even die rooi filter op? En hoeveel minute na elke rotasie van die lig- ons het so 5-8 gewag. Sal dit baie waardeur as jy antwoord en dankie dat jul nie bullshit verkoop nie. Die goed hier by ons is al wakker geskiet en om actual skote op hul te kry wys dat dit werk.

CAT LIQUID REFERENCE
11-2-2004

I have used Gary Laubscher’s personally made cat attracting liquid with great success on my farm in the Karoo.
I was given a I litre bottle to try out, and without using any other bait or attractant at all managed to trap three caracal(rooikat) lynx cat-within a very short time.
There is no doubt in my mind that this liquid is highly effective for the purpose it is designed and I would have no hesitation in recommending it to those farmers who have a problem with caracal attacking their livestock.
Yours Faithfully,

CALLING COURSE REFERENCE
8th November 2001

I have met Gary a few weeks ago through the Magnum magazine.

Following this he sent me a splendid tape about hunting at night of jackal, namely lynx and jackal. What a pleasure as all I ever wanted to know about this topic was covered. The video is made by Gary and is 3 hours long.

I then booked myself on a course about calling and hunting with Gary. After a delightful weekend full of excitement and hunting -together with Gary’s personal attention I was able to shoot my first predator called in by Gary.

There are no words to describe the feeling you get during such a hunt, all I can say is that I am hooked for life.

If you are a farmer battling with these predators such as jackal and lynx or want to learn how to finally become successful in hunting these problem animals trust Gary Laubscher.

Believe me; it’s worth your while.

CALLING REFERENCE
30-9-2005

Graag verwys ek na die onlangse opleiding wat ek ontvang het vannaf Mnr Gary Laubscher. Ek boer deeltyds in die Ladismith distrik en roofdiere het die laaste klompie jare drasties toegeneem. Vandat ek gehoor het dat jy roofdiere met 'n spesiale CD kan inroep en met 'n rooi lig kan skiet het ek redelik navraag rondom die proses gedoen. Ek ook het so 'n CD aangeskaf.

Oor die afgelope 1 1/2 jaar het ek sporadies die CD snags gespeel met wisselvallige sukses. Ek het besef dat ek dinge verkeerd doen en hulp sal moet kry. Gelukkig het my pad gekruis met Gary en het ek hom saamgenooi plaas toe. Wat 'n ongelooflike ondervinding! Gary is uiters gedissiplineerd en paraat! Ek moes spesiaal 'n raam vir my bakkie laat sweis om sy aanbevole kamofleernet te kon akkomoseer. Ons moes al 18:00 klaar opgeslaan in die veld wees en soos muise binne die gekamofleerde agterkant van die bakkie sit vie 1 1/4 uur. Ons moes tot kamo klere dra MET kamo gesigsmaskers. Maar met groot sukses! Albei aande het ons die jakkals binne 60 sekondes ingeroep! Die jakkalse het beide aande letterlik op die bakkie afgestorm tot 40m en kon ek met gemak dooie rus oor die reelings skiet!

Gary het my ook gewys watter roepe om wanneer te speel. Jy kan bv nie 'n challenge call roep as dit nie paartyd is nie. Nog minder kan jy klein jakkalsroepe speel as die jakkalse nie kleintjies het nie. As dit doen leer jy hul net slim.

Gary het ook 2 nuwerwetse roepers gebruik, 'n sogenoemde FOX PRO wat met 'n remote werk wat allerhande roepe daarop het en ook 'n ander een wat Gary self maak. Jong, jy kry sommer hoendervleis as die goed speel! Wat nog te sÍ van die jakkalse!

Duidelik is Gary 'n kenner op sy gebied en kan ek hom hoogstens aanbeveel. Skakel my gerus vir 'n verwysing.

Dooie jakkels groete

Mens is deesdae so gewoont aan swak diens dat ons dit maar so
aanvaar....maar hier kom Gary en wys ons wat is diens!

Ek het hom onlangs gekontak oor die roep van ongediertes en die groot probleem wat ons het hier in die karoo (cradock destrik),Gary het my vriendelik en professionele raad gehelp en sy kennis met my gedeel, het my raad gegee oor wat om vir my aan te skaf vir nagjag wat dit vir my makliker gaan maak en wanneer om watter geluide ,watter tyd van die jaar te gebruik.

Ek besluit toe wat om te koop en kontak hom weer om dit te bestel, 5min later, is my produkte oppad na my toe, en ekt klaar my " tracking number " en nog nie betaal nie! Toe ek klaar betaal het toe kontak ek net vir Gary en sÍ die geld is in! 'n Dag later gebruik ek my nuwe produkte, en met groot sukses! na 25 minute se roep ,skiet ek 'n groot rooijakkals teef! Die volgende dag moes ek net vir Gary kontak en hom komplimenteer op sy super diens!

Ek kan vir enige iemand sÍ wat hierdie reference lees dat ,Gary is 'n waremens en dat hy nie huiwer om jou te help nie, dat sy kennis van jare lange ondervinding en harde werk is! Ondersteun  vir Gary dan sal jy ook die superdiens ondervind soos ek! Ja, met so man kan mens mos boer!
I am a happy customer

Thanks Gary!

Today, people in South Africa are so used to bad service that we just accept it all, but here comes Gary and shows us what service is all about.

I contacted him recently about predators and the problems we have in the Craddock area of the Karoo. Gary gave me friendly and professional advice and shared his knowledge with me. He gave me advice regarding what I should get for night hunting etc, as well as what sounds to use when and and what times of the year.

I decided what I wanted, and I called him with my order, 5 minutes later and I had a tracking number for an overnight courier and I had my stuff on the way, and I had not even paid yet! After I paid I called Gary to tell him the money was paid in. The next day I had my purchase and used it with great success, after 25 minutes I called and shot a large female jackal. The next day I called him to say thank you for excellent service, super service.

I can honestly say that anybody reading this reference that Gary is a genuine person who does not hesitate to help you and that his knowledge comes from years of expierience. Support Gary, and you will also expierience super service like I did. Without a doubt, yes with such a man we can all farm easier.

Thanks Gary

Open Reeded caller – Made in South Africa 

I bought an open reed predator call made by Gary at Feather & Fur. I went out and was amazed at how well it worked, I called 3 buck to within 20 m of the truck at night. I called in cats and jackal with this call. I found it really good, I then ordered more stuff from Gary and he sent me another open reeded call, his latest one with a brass insert was sent for free.

Thanks for the excellent service!

REFERENCE FOR CALLING COURSE

Gary my friend, ons wil jou ook net graag bedank vir 'n onvergeetlike naweek. Alles was perfek, alhoewel die weer dalk nie so lekker saam gespeel het nie, was dit steeds baie lekker.

Wat die kurses betref, moet ek sÍ dit was baie leersaam,profesioneel en tog nie vervelig nie.Dinge wat ons daar geleer het is iets wat jy kan gebruik in die veld en jou kennis omtrend die veld en roofdiere is verbreed.

Jou kennis is merkwaardig en jy is bereid om dit met ander te deel, waarvoor ons werklik baie dankbaar is.

Ons is werklik baie be-indruk oor die verskillende "callers" wat jy vir ons gegee het, maar dit beteken nou natuurlik baie werk vir ons.

Dankie nogmaals en ons praat later weer.

Gary my good friend, we want to just thank you for an unforgettable weekend, everything was perfect except the weather that rained us out. But it was still perfect.

As far as the course is concerned, I must say it was educational and professionally done and not boring. The things we learnt are things we can use in the bush and your knowledge about the bush and predator calling subject is  very broad.

Your knowledge is amazing and its nice that you are willing to share it with us, and we appreciate that We are very impressed with the various callers you gave us, now we must practise with them as you showed us.

Controlling predation in Namibia is not an easy task. Especially if you are a livestock and small game farmer.

Fighting jackal and lynx on our old traditional ways just didn't pay dividends anymore, so I had to find a solution for my problem. My solution turned out to be Gary Laubscher.

After some communication and excellent service, my first batch of Feather & Fur products arrived in Namibia. Tested most of the jackal and lynx CD's and callers, I came to the following conclusion:

The CD's worked exceptionally well, provided that you have proper sound equipment and that it is used as indicated by Gary. Getting used to this sort of calling, I went on to the next level, Hand Callers. This turned out to be an adrenaline cracker.

The caller that stood out amongst the rest was the Feather & Fur Open Reeded Call. It has a brown rubber texture to create a squeaky to rough sound, brass band for appeal, and is made of injected resin and rubber. This call just speeds up the time for predators to come in. Fastest time was about four minutes. Its sound travels quite far, which makes it highly effective in large fenced areas. It seems that, especially jackal, are more eager to come in on this sound. They simply can't resist it. 

I can recommend this call with great assurance.

WELL DONE GARY, IT'S A SURE KILLER!

REFERENCE FROM DAVID FOURIE

REFERENCE NOT EDITED

November 2007

Hi Gary.

Just to tell you that I received the package and all was intact.

Man, am I impressed !

I can tell you honestly that what I expected was a text or .doc file with some technical drawings or scribblings, finish en klaar.

What I did not expect was hordes of detailed full colour fotos, a few demo movie files and the most informative and interesting document on calling I’d ever stumbled upon !

It is clear to me by your work, the way you present the demo’s and especially the personal comments you make in the book that you are a dedicated Professional. I like that, it is somewhat rare in this country lately.  Your knowledge and sharing of knowledge is on par if not better than the likes of ‘ Varmint Al ’ http://www.varmintal.com/coy5-2tm as the info pertains to local conditions and animals. 

Makes me want to book a course with you asap, even if I never plan to do pest control the experience must be great. J

If I may make one suggestion to the dvd content:

It would do no damage to add a ‘general’ hardware list for building a cage. For example a .doc or text file that reads  ‘To build the cage you need : 10 x M10 nuts, 6m of 10mm roundbar, 400mm of 20mm steel pype,1x 500x500 2mm steel plate, etc.’  This will enable pleps like me to print a shopping list and do only one trip to the hardware store.

Just a thought.

Thanks for a great deal for my money. Oh, and kudos for the chocolates, it’s my wive’s favorite!

Jackal/Lynx Hunting CD

Op Saterdag 28 Februarie is ek in die jagveld op ‘n vriend van my se plaas buite Potchefstroom. Hy is ‘n saai-boer maar het ook ‘n paar stuks bees en skaap.

Teen 17:00 het ek my stelling ingeneem waarop ek besluit het volgens Gary se instruksies. Ek het myself voorberei vir die onbekende, as professionele jagter het ek nog nooit so ‘n ervaring gehad op my eie nie – saam met ander jagters wel. Ek het onmiddellik begin met die ‘trek’ Jackal Locator – na omtrent ‘n minuut het daar drie groepe jakkalse uit verskillende rigtings geantwoord, opvolgend spesifiek die Jackal Bark. Na omtrent 15 min was daar geen jakkals in sig nie. Ek besluit toe om na ‘n alternatiewe posisie te skuif en stelling in te neem. Dadelik trek ek toe weg met die Locator ‘trek’, opgevolg met ‘trek’ no. 2 wat Goat in distress naboots. Dadelik het ek oŽ opgemerk in die kollig. Dit het baie vinnig nadergekom en so ook die geluid van hoewe op die grond gehoor – ek het nogal geskrik and die kollig dadelik in die geluid se rigting gelig en ‘n gewone duiker het baie aggresief met ‘n spoed op my bakkie afgestorm. Ek moes die dier verwilder of hy het in my bakkie ingespring – die bestuurder se deur het oop gestaan.

Terug na die oŽ het ek toe gemerk dat dit tot verbasing drie jakkalse was (let wel was) – ek het dadelik aangelÍ en die naaste een laat lÍ; die ander twee het op vlug geslaan. Dadelik verander ek die ‘trek’ met Jackal puppy distress waarop volgend die twee dadelik omdraai en reguit terug hardloop in my rigting, vas steek, en baie versigtig nader kom. Ek het my tyd gevat en een ook laat lÍ – die laaste een het verbasend langs hom gaan staan waar hy my genoeg tyd gegee het om weer aan te kan lÍ en hom ook toe na sy makkers toe te stuur.

Diť ervaring van ‘n leeftyd wat ek ondervind het sou dit nooit moontlik gewees het nie as ek nie die advertensie van Gary in Wild en Jag gesien het nie – na telke male se probeerslag met CDs wat mense beweer werk, het ek geen sukses gehad nie.

Met Gary se vlinke kliŽnte oornag posdiens het dit vir my  moontlik gemaak om my CDs die volgende dag na betaling te ontvang.

Ek bevel Gary se produkte aan aan enige iemand wat sy jag ernstig opvat en onthou dit gaan nie net oor jag nie, maar ook die bewaring van ons Fona en Flora.

Met vriendelike jagters groete

JACKAL BARKER MADE BY FEATHER & FUR IN CAPE TOWN- SOUTH AFRICA
8 March 2004

I have been calling jackal for about 3 years before seeing the article about the South African manufactured jackal caller by Feather and Fur. I called Gary and I had my Caller within a few days, I received excellent service from Gary.

On my first hunt with the caller I started with the jackal bark. I used to start with a distress call as a normal process and the average waiting time for some action would be around 20 to 30 minutes.

That night the action started within 10 minutes and I managed to shoot both the jackal that came in. Now I always start with the jackal bark and the reaction to this is incredible, I had jackal bark back at me and reacting quite aggressive towards the sound of the intruder.

I do not have the time or opportunity to hunt on a regular basis and when I do get the opportunity I try to make the best of it, the calling technique and jackal caller helps me to be more successful on a hunt. On a recent hunt I managed to shoot 6 jackals in one night.

Thanks for an excellent product and service, happy hunting
