My Warty looking for payback on Stoffel.......
Ozondjahe Hunting Safaris, Namibia, August 2010
Reminds me of a picture I took of my daughter about 2, with a 98 Mauser sporter in her lap! Didnt bother her none!
Yeah, but considering we don't have grizzlies here, not much of a concern!!!

I would like to show a few samples from my hunting during the 2009 season.
It started with a 7 days plains game hunt in RSA East Cape in April, here is the last one i got during this trip. (I have removed the PH, since i don`t know if he would like to have his face shown here...)
Later the same year the hunting season started back home to, so in September i got this one. Norwegian red deer.
One month later i got this gentleman in my scope. Norwegian moose. The dog, a Norwegian Elkhound is called Bill. :o)
This last photo is taken on a hunting trip in the mountains where i was hunting grouse. This was in 2007. We use to have a basecamp at 1700m above sea, and the temperature is usually about -10 degrees celsius. It is really beutifully in the mountains this time of the year, but it can be a bit rough to.....
What a beautiful bushbuck!!!

Great bushbuck! A good bushbuck is very high on my list. I can only hope to do as well as you, BigBullet!
Thank-you to Jacques for providing this wonderful opportunity,
and to Jerome for his patience in teaching a complete Lud-light how to post pics.
Some of my modest contributions to follow.
To begin, this is my very first bull Tahr taken in some very rough country on N.Z's west coast.
My approach route was the steep rock face in back of picture !
The drop to the River below was close to sheer and in excess of several hundred meters.
Location; headwaters Maitahi River.
Another West Coast N.Z pic,
this time two nice Chamois.
A very nice menal phase, Fallow buck taken in Australia.
This is a very nice Javan Rusa stag taken on the very last day of 5 continuous days of looking for this particular stag.
Wow Paul! I'm not sure which impresses me more the scenery in the Chamois pic or what it took to get to the Tahr. I know that Tahr would have never been in any danger from me!
Hey Phil, don't go getting no impression I'm any sort of moutaineer.
That day I took that Tahr it was close to freezing yet I was sweating like an inmate on death row !
I spent quite a bit of time hunting Tahr when I was younger and more agile. Awesome country, fantastic hunting.
Often in the right area, you can take both species on the same hunt, if your legs and lungs will allow.
My Cape buff, taken in Zimbabwe.
My first shot on this bull, off the sticks at about 90yds facing almost head-on, missed the heart by a couple of inches.
No follow up shot was possible in the mixed herd.
We tracked him, and one of his buddies for more than one and a half tense hours before jumping him from a patch up thick scrub.
He paused at 30yds whilst giving me a look that would melt Pluto.
Instinct took over and i put a solid through his shoulders that put him down for good.
Immense relief, following an intense tracking period.
My most treasured Trophy, irrespective of size.
Sable taken near Hwange.
To me the most impressive Antelope, at least that I have seen, on the hoof.
Here are two roe does i took last saturday in the thetford forest , Norfolk UK. Taken with my weatherby vanguard .243, 105 grain.
