Made our decision and my first African Hunt will be with Spiral Horns in May 09, 2012
What a hard choice to make with so many great guys on this site sending me great information but in the end we selected Louis and his Spiral Horns Company for my first hunt in Africa. I will be joined by 3 family members of a great company were I take care of their aviation needs.
So first a big thanks to all & this site that educated me on Africa Hunting crash course style
So 14 day hunt where I be after the Spiral Horn grand slam add Nyla, bushbuck & lioness. I just love those animals well the problem is I love them all but I am sure that something may give us a WOW look at that one and change. I really want a big Kudu Gray Ghost.
My buddy will be going after Cape & Big ole black maned lion, the rest are still fine tuning their list.
I am bringing my Rem Sendro 300 RUM and Rem XCR 375 H&H which is restocked with Bell & Carlson Medallion, both are customized by myself with action, bedding & etc. It seems that most folks frown on the Rem 700 on here but they have served me well hunting for many years and so I going with bring what you know to shoot mode. Plus increases my shooting funds LOL
I am thinking about changing the open sights on the 375 heck not much left but the 700 action and barrel anyway
I really cannot say enough about Louis's attention to detail & communication. Man he can answer questions that I had not thought to ask, so I will try and post up a great hunt when I am done.
So looks like I got 4 months of planning, reloading and asking more questions so hope you guys do not get to bored with me :cool: well off to find a flight and think about sights, maybe a new scope for 375 and dream about hunting Africa Soon ;)
