    Default Elephant hunting from 18 August

    We're heading across in 17 more sleeps - but who's counting?

    The plan us for elephant, brown hyena and spotted hyena and a few other species should we have the opportunity. Should be a great hunt nd a good break from the daiy grind.

    Was out smashing a few pigs last weekend and blowing up milk bottles with my .450 Ackley Magnum. All good to go!

    Good luck Daggaboy. I too am heading into the "home stretch". Leaving Aug 17th for Mozambique. It's amazing that at 57, I still feel like a kid counting down the days until Christmas eve! Look forward to your hunt report!

    Milk bottles, an interesting approximation for a facsimile target. Creative.
    Good luck to both of you.

    If you stop getting excited it is time to quit!

    In lieu of any megafauna in the paddocks I roam, I hung milk bottles in trees with a great big mountain for a backstop. It was the only thing I could think to do to get myself shooting up at targets! No misses! All we have to do now is find an elephant hanging out if a baobab or a sausage tree and I should be right...

    Guys,

    Spent Saturday at the bench assembling ammo for the .450 Ackley and the .300 Weatherby. Had to pick up a few last minute items and with ten days to go, all the paperwork is done and all we need to do is pack!

    Bluey you're about right - not much chance of sleeping tonight! I worked through last night just to get on top of a few things before I left thinking tht I'd sleep like a baby tonight - not the case!

    We're off in 8 hours.......
