    Default Back from Lekota Safaris in South Africa

    I got back from South Africa a couple of weeks ago and just got a second to post a few pictures. This was my second time over the pond with Lekota Safaris. The first time over I thought that nothing would ever beat that hunt but I was wrong. This time even though I went when the moon was bright ( thanks to the World Cup and price of airline tickets ) turned out to be the best hunt I had ever been on.

    The wind was all over the place just about everyday of my 10 day hunt but it would usually start to blow in one direction around 4:00pm and we would start to see game come to water. The two main animals that I went over for was the Bushbuck and Eland and was able to take both. I shot the Bushbuck on the 2nd to last day by spot and stalk at 33 yds. and shot the Eland the last day, the last 30 minutes of light at a water hole, you talk about excited. The Bushbuck had 17 1/2" horns and Eland was a absolute monster. Earlier in the week I also took a 54" Kudu and a very heavy 42" Gemsbok female. After I was able to take the Kudu and the Gemsbok I told myself that I could go home a very happy man even if I don't get another oppertunity at another animal, but that all changed the last two days in getting both the Bushbuck and the Eland.

    I wished I had more time to for a better write up but I hope you enjoy the pictures.

    Great trophies congrats,

    You have to give us a blow by blow on the bushbuck man!
    I have walked in the tracks of the elephant, heard the lion roar and met the buffalo on his terms. I shall never be the same.
