I told him he should go buy some lottery tickets when we got back to the states. The PH told everyone about the water buck and almost everyone would say "does that guy realize what kind of trophy he has?" believe me, I have plenty of pics where you can't see the animal for the smile on his face!

    We hunted with Mof Venter of Adansonia Safaris. Here is his website: Welcome
    Reminds me of a vidoe I saw years ago. The guy on the video was dedicated to hunting a particular monster Whitetail and no other. He heard gunshots nearby and sent his cameraman to investigate and found a newbie had just shot his first deer, a 250" class non-typical! He interviewed the guy who was not particularly excited or impressed with the animal, he was more concerned with filling his doe tag!!! I'm sure eventually it sank in for him too.
    The journey is the reward.

    The catnip is my favorite mouth call.

    Beautiful trophies also
    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.
