Cant wait until august... Going to visit Willem and Koedoeberg for a few days hunt. Hoping for a Blue wildebeest, a Warthog, a Bushbuck and maybe a huge Kudu....
Bushbuck are my nemesis and IMO the best looking animal in the world...
I can see August is going to come slow for you. I have not looked at Bushbuck as one of my target animals, but looking at the pic you attached I can see the attraction. I hope all of your dreams come true in August.When I am not hunting, I am thinking about hunting....I think I'll go hunting.

Good luck on your hunt Trond hope you get some good ones. Bushbuck are a very beautiful animal and I have one on my list for next month but they can be dangerous as well if wounded so be careful and shoot staight I want my friend to make it back home without any new holes in him. I'm trying to make up my mind as to which one I'm going to have a full body mount done on the Warthog, Bushpig or Bushbuck guess I'll have to wait and see what I get. Again good luck on your hunt I know Willem will do a good job for you.
I will share one on my facebook so you can see one my Friend and PH Rusty and his client took about a week or so ago. BobEnjoy life now -- it has an expiration date.

Bob, you really dont consider to full mount a warthog? They are so ugly....lol, but maybe just because of that it would make a special trophy.
I definitly would make a full mount of a bushbuck if I could afford it. Just look at the colours...
I will do my best to shoot straight, hopefully with my bow but I will rent a rifle, if thats whats required.
Edit: Please post the photo from your friend Bob. I would love to see it.

Good luck with that Bushbuck. Certainly one of my favourites.

Thanks, I have great expectations allthough I think they are elusive and shy beauties.
